It is without question that we are die-hard fans of Spain's Pura Lopez footwear. In fact, our Fall 08 MOSAIC Pura Lopez evening shoes are so smoking "haute" that both Instyle (p.271) and Essence(p.62) magazines have featured them in December '08 editorial spreads.
What is it about both pumps that adds polish to any holiday evening look and thereafter? It's simply all in the details! Both pumps are the perfect blend of attitude, mixed with soft femininity. Plus a rosette or ribbon detail on any of your signature items this fall adds just the right hint of drama. The results? Absolutely magical.
We adore Pura Lopez shoes. Pura Lopez was born in 1962 in Elche, Spain, into a family dedicated to shoe manufacturing. In 1979 she joined the Escuela de Artes Aplicadas y Oficios Artisticos de Alicante, earning a degree in interior design. In 1981 Pura Lopez joined the Escuela de Artes y Oficios Barreira in Valencia, where she completed her degree in fashion design. Three years later, Pura Lopez traveled to New York to complete a course in fashion design at the Fashion Institute of Technology. Shortly thereafter, Pura Lopez completed a course in shoe design at the Ars Sutoria Institute in Milan, the most prestigious school for footwear model designing. Now she was ready to join the design department of her family's shoe business. The PURA LOPEZ brand is born.
