FREEDOM FOUND IN NATURE

Nature is a place of true harmony. The rainbow colored wings of a bird tearing through the sky, the depth of detail in a tropical forest. This artistic harmony is what all artists yearn for it’s what inspired Luís Onofre to create Freedom. The 2021 Summer collection is a story of open spaces, shapes, materials and colours that speak to an inimitable connection to Mother Nature.
Every style is its own private rainbow. A single model will serve as the basis for multiple variations. Gold sets the tone and amplifies the yellow, the blue, the strawberry, the beige and the caqui to create endless chromatic possibilities that will shape their own reality.
Feathers, foliage and ethnic braidery adorn some of the season’s Star Styles.
The shapes celebrate the spontaneity of Summer, with sandals and slippers shining in a number of shapes and heights. Straps, square toe caps, embroidered and lace effects will take centre stage and elevate some of the models.
Suede, leather and satin are ideal building blocks, but this time around it’s raffia that will be the unexpected hero, serving as protagonist both for soles and coverings.
Dyed, braided (replicating macramé) or just left to its natural form, raffia is synonymous with returning to nature.
In several combinations, the brand’s trademark touch of elegance is achieved through a renewed partnership with Swarovski. For more sportive models, lightness and comfort were the purpose, and the materials were delicately worked to achieve it.
