Worn by the likes of such Hollywood A List stars as Jennifer Aniston, Jessica Alba, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Beckinsale and even Mr Tom Cruise, the luxury footwear brand Fiorentini + Baker has finally arrived in London. The brand, whose style has been which has been described as a cross between Brit cool and Italian craftsmanship, are opening a flagship store in the east of London.
Fiorentini + Baker are a small company who design footwear using traditional artisan techniques and their distressed leather look is a huge hit with celebrities and fashionistas alike. One of their signature styles is the many buckled boot, created with subtle stacked heels (probably why Tom Cruise loves them so much!).
All their footwear are designed and created using the best quality leather and suede, which is then distressed to produce a ‘biker worn’ look that the celebrities are particularly fond of. The brand are based in Bologna Italy, and each small collection is created in small factories in the south east of Italy.
Up until recently, their boots were only available in the States, but now, thanks to overwhelming demand, the new store will be opening just before Christmas so ladies, time to get your Christmas orders in!
And the boots are not just for us ladies, as they have been seen on the likes of Tom Cruise and Kevin Bacon too. Fiorentini + Baker say that they ‘pride themselves on generating a movement of people who want something enduring not ephemeral’ by drawing on the skills of Italy’s small family run artisan shoemakers rather than trends.
Fiorentini & Baker’s harmonious blend of Italian craftsmanship and London cool is evident in all their boots, and ably demonstrated by their trademark black leather biker boots. You can wear their boots with everything from skater skirts to skinny jeans, or try with a relaxed tee and printed jeans for an effortlessly chic weekend look.
