The Nudistsong — The Nudistsong is a classic, iconic silhouette, and in black patent it’s the equivalent of the little black dress. It’s a must-have shoe for any woman to own.
The Real Deal — This modern platform with its sleek yet simple design channels the ’70s era, which was my goal.
The Elixir — An espadrille wedge always has a special place in my collection because of its Spanish-craftsmanship roots.
The NearlyNude — I wanted to take the Nudist silhouette and give it a new design twist for the spring 2016 season, and what better way than with a trendy block heel.
The Nieta — This strappy flat sandal was actually sketched by my talented granddaughter. I thought it was so fabulous I put it into production and named it after the Spanish word for granddaughter.
