New Season, New Shoes: Mercedes Castillo

MC


Describe your design philosophy.

Wearable, versatile, effortless and optimistic. Inspired by modern architecture, sculpture and geometric abstraction, our brand celebrates self-expression and personal creativity. We use sculptural shapes, exaggerated proportions and unique, emotive color. Our pieces balance craftsmanship with a modern vision. Collections are bold, dramatic and playful, and designed for an independent, imaginative woman with the confidence to be her own muse.

What does craftsmanship mean to you?

The ability to execute to perfection. To turn a dream into reality. Pieces can be “crafted by hand” or “crafted by machine”. Today’s luxury is that both are available.
