Style Lessons with Brunate Boario Styles
Apr 8th 2019
Take a page out of the Italian woman’s style playbook in a heritage-inspired print.
Eponymously named for the high-altitude town in the northern Italian province of Como when it was founded by Vittorio Galli in 1926, Brunate has been handcrafting statement-making shoes for women for decades. The Brunate collection of designer footwear marries eye-catching patterns and classic cuts, giving women an inspiring style that is at once modern and elegant. For the Spring/Summer seasons, many of the print trends come from a mixed affinity for exotic travel, leisure, and wistfulness towards bohemian times. Our eyes are trained on an abundance of tie-dye, paisley, and abstract motifs for their ability to transform and liven up even the most basic pieces, and we are mixing them with abandon. Brunate has coupled this optical trend and Italy’s scintillating fashion ethos in a fashion-forward interpretation to reinvigorate your shoe closet.
Indicative of the country’s rich textile history, Boario is an exuberant fabrication defined by multiple vibrant colors fading into each other within the chevron-embroidered sheer mesh. Two time-honored silhouettes pick up this maximalist print on their uppers: a youthful ballet flat (11481) and a sophisticated pump (51045). The Boario flat features a pointed cap-toe, a suede trimmed throat ending in a teardrop cutout, and an angled heel for modest height. Its pump companion is elevated by a suede cylindrical heel and designed with a buckled slingback strap and pointed toe. Leather lining and light toe box padding cushion both styles for all-day (or night) wear.
Italian fashion is synonymous with precision tailoring, sensually-charged lines, and above all, carefree confidence. When wearing either one of Brunate’s Boario styles, we recommend aligning your style expression with the It girls of the Bel Paese for authenticity. Embody the aesthetic when you step into the slingback with a menswear-inspired trench coat nipped in at the waist with a leather belt. Pair the ensemble with an oversized clutch and tortoise shell sunglasses. Light wash jeans and a cotton shirt open at the collar accessorized with a pony hair belt or satchel bag exude laidback-chic that taps into your innate American style sensibilities with a bit of influence from the the boot-shaped peninsula. “More is more” when embracing this fashion capital’s spirit. Pile on the prints with an ankle-grazing dress in a bold pattern teamed with the ballet flat. An embroidered crossbody mini bag pulls it together. Whether you explore graphic impact, or keep it classic with just a touch of visual interest, Brunate’s Boario shoes will take your wardrobe to new heights.
