We're back from another great trip to Bologna, Italy for LineaPelle–the biggest international leather show in the world. It's the perfect place for us to choose our materials and components for our Resort and Spring 2015 collections since our factories are in Italy and we work exclusively with Italian tanneries. There were tons of bright colors, pastels, animal prints like snake, lizard and croc, and metallics this year from which to choose. We also visited booths like Vibram and Extralight to find new high-tech materials to incorporate into the shoes for maximum comfort and flexibility. We are one of only a handful of companies in the world that uses these materials in women's dress shoes. LineaPelle is the best of both worlds for us–we combine our research to make our shoes the cutting edge of both comfort and fashion.
