For over 15 rewarding years Louis D’Arienzo has had the pleasure and honour of designing footwear for global luxury fashion brands from Gucci and Jimmy Choo to Berluti and Ermenegildo Zegna. A career change in 2007 brought him to designing aircraft interiors for private clients returning to shoe design after this creatively renewing experience.
Having been part of these visionary design and marketing teams has influenced Louis to be a better and more conscientious designer with a well honed understanding of what inspires and drives choice.
His first hand knowledge of product development has revealed areas where we can improve our design practice with the planet and our future in mind.
His unisex seasonless designs are simple and flattering with attention to crafted detail referencing a multi-culti tribe. A well heeled traveler and urban nomad, Louis has called New York, London, Amsterdam and Paris home. He dreams of adding Ibiza to that list.
