|Fiorentini + Baker|
Fiorentini + Baker was founded in 2001 by English-born designer Deborah Baker. The philosophy behind every collection cannot be attributed to a particular theme or event and certainly doers not conform to any trend. It evolves from a subconscious process, sparked by an old piece of furniture, a film or a peculiar piece or architecture. The results are simple, yet quite beautiful. Using vintage fabrics, supple leather and soft suede, Fiorentini + Baker produces a range of fashionable shoes for both men and women.
The small, family run factories, where the shoes are produced, are a world away from the glossy magazines and glamorous worldwide boutiques where they inevitably end up.
But perhaps it is their detachement from the fashion scene that gives the shoes their undeniable edge. It's these characteristics, combined with an uncompromising attention to detail that has become the signature of every Fiorentini + Baker collection.
