​Thierry Rabotin Couture: Heavy Metals and Touchable Texture

Sep 12th 2019

The Italian label returns with experimental, ultramodern designs for the season.

For Fall 2019, Thierry Rabotin reinterprets iconic shapes with a deft balance of its inherent Italian exuberance and finely considered details for a fresh take on women’s luxury. A sense of artfulness and heritage ring throughout the Couture collection for the season with its modern material story and opulent shades. Fashion-forward and uncompromising on comfort and functionality, each style is handcrafted by expert artisans in Italy.

The Nedra (C1033) turns a classic oxford shoe into a high-fashion counterpart for every event on your social calendar. Kitted out in black suede and grey leather, the shoe features contoured panels, waxed laces, and a reinforced counter. An aluminum block heel gives the Oxford a lift, making it versatile enough to pair with everything from pantsuits to sheath dresses. The Italian label’s bright blue lines the interior for a signature touch. A fashion icon that continues to be a symbol of timeless elegance, the traditional pump is reimagined for today’s woman with the Michi (C5251). Made from soft suede and panels of leather, the silhouette is treated with two-tone metallic finishes. A covered block heel and sturdy outsole wrap up the construction. The C8051QT is characterized by its avant-garde originality. Rendered in a combination of creamy suede and full-grain leather, the shoe leads with muted tones of blue and black. Its triple-stacked wedge heel gives the design a bold, architectural look. Lace-up ties are capped with silver-tone cube aglets. The heel and front are split for a whimsical twist. Underfoot, the bootie is supported by a fully-wrapped platform and a lightly treaded rubber outsole. Each shoe is fitted with Poron® memory cushioning within the footbed. The technology’s open cell nature helps the foam maintain its original form and function, molding to the curves of the foot to keep you on your toes throughout the day.

Thierry Rabotin’s Couture collection transforms even the most basic wardrobe items for your weekly routine and more. Wondering what to wear to a wedding? Pair the C8051QT with a double-breasted pantsuit for a twist on menswear. A metallic clutch bag and understated jewelry put all of the attention on this statement-making bootie. For a feminine feel, a micro-pleated chiffon dress with a mini length and keyhole neck does the trick. Dial up the textural contrast in the Michi pump teamed with an oversized sweater and a leather pencil skirt for work. We love the Nedra oxford with distressed skinny jeans in a dark wash. A simple button-up blouse and tweed jacket present a playful mix of high and low style.
