Aquazzura x Olivia Palermo Collaboration

The Italian cult brand and style icon join forces to create an exclusive capsule collection, available at selected retailers world-wide from September 2014

We tend to let people know pretty loudly and proudly how much we love certain brands here at OliviaPalermo.com, probably because Olivia herself is such an advocate of doing the same thing.  With this in mind, it should be no surprise when hearing who Olivia is teaming up with for her next  big design collaboration.  Enter the Aquazzura x Olivia Palermo collection.

A creative partnership a long time coming, Olivia and designer Edgardo Osorio have had a mutual friendship and admiration for each other since the very beginning of the Aquazzura brand as Olivia has always been a supporter and quite obviously a wearer of the distinguished Florence-based brand.  Pulling inspiration from both Osorio’s archives and favorite pieces from Olivia’s closet – like crystals from a vintage Victorian necklace for an embellished sandal – the six piece ornate capsule collection is full of the perfect must-haves to match with any ensemble throughout the entire year.

“Olivia and I have a very similar vision of shoes. She is a real style icon and has amazing knowledge about shoes and accessories. We wanted to create a capsule collection of the styles every woman needs in her closet, interpreted with the Aquazzura aesthetic and seen through the eyes of Olivia.”

- Edgardo Osorio
