Here at Grey Rose we are big fans of de Gournay so we were especially excited to see an exclusive collaboration with luxury footwear label Aquazzura; the Florence born brand of visionary designer Edgardo Osorio.
Following an introduction as a result of the de Gournay wallpaper installed within Osorio’s own apartment, the suggestion of a collaboration between the companies particular fields of expertise met with mutual enthusiasm.
Over the course of several meetings, the idea for a line of shoes bearing the print of a unique, hand painted ‘de Gournay for Aquazzura’ artwork took place. The partnership expanded to use the same custom Tropical Chinoiserie motif – the ‘Amazonia’ design – for a full scale installation within the new Aquazzura premises in Milan: a hand painted rainforest within in the heart of the city.
The range of shoes are exclusive to Matchesfashion.com
