5 Questions: Rene Caovilla

Join us next Tuesday, April 14 from 4-6pm in the shoe salon on the second floor to meet designer Edoardo Caovilla of Rene Caovilla and view the Spring collection / preview the pre-fall collection.

Bergdorf Goodman: It must be an amazing feeling to see women wearing your designs! Is there a particularly memorable or extraordinary moment like this throughout your design career?
Edoardo Caovilla: I’m always immensely pleased to see our creations on the world’s top celebrity feet but I also really enjoy a particular satisfaction when I see my creations worn by active sexy cool young common people!

BG: Having collaborated with fashion houses like Valentino, Chanel, and Dior, what would you say is the key to a brilliant collection?
EC: The key is the mix of cultures and experience. When I was very young I remember the meeting for Dior Couture between my father, Galliano and Manolo …Extraordinary mix of capabilities and knowledge! That has been for me a special experience and technical experience !

BG: Where do you gather your inspiration from? Do you have a muse?
EC: Inspiration is something that come apparently without any notice. Year after year I understood that I’m more inspired early in the morning, when I’m between dreams and asleep. It’s also absolutely nice place, nice people help myself and my inspiration.

BG: What are the 5 staple pieces you think every woman must own in her closet?
EC:
• Sexy black and gold pump. Perfect for a casual daily look.
• Romantic crystal flat. A real St.Tropez style!
• Biker boots with a rock-luxury touch • Sporty-chic running shoes
• Elegant high heel sandal for a party night

BG: If you couldn’t design shoes, what career would you pursue?
EC: I gained my first relevant experiences in the finance field, working for international financial institution with hard experience in China and Far East. I had also a great experience in designing yachts, and still now I am managing my own company operating in the industry of renewable energies. Different experience, with a strong financial knowledge behind, allow you to use different approaches to your business!
