Shoe collections come a dime a dozen, particularly in a market oversaturated with inexpensive, lackluster product. In response to US consumers’ penchant for product at bargain-basement prices, some footwear brands have sacrificed creativity, quality and innovation for lower prices and banality. Angela Mitchell is not that kind of footwear brand.Established in 2016 by creative designers and sisters Krystal and Marilyn Lavoie, Angela Mitchell is a Canadian emerging luxury shoe brand, handmade in Italy for men and women. And the brand’s fall 2018 debut during New York Fashion Week: The Shows was a bonafide hit, demonstrating that the design duo’s design aesthetic contains that delicate balance of retail viability and fashion sensibility. Something much needed in the current milquetoast market.

Inspired by a journey through Morocco and the cities of Marrakech, Casablanca, Agadir and Berber rural villages, Krystal and Marilyn Lavoie found a way to weave Morocco’s orange sunsets, desert horizons and rich North African culture into a footwear collection that centered on modern sensibilities while pushing fashion’s proverbial envelope. By employing semi-precious stones into a lot of the footwear, particularly on high quality leather, the brand recalled the exotic Moroccan landscapes with its unexpected beauty and mystery.

The women’s collection offers 7 contemporary and classic styles. Among oxfords and fringe-embellished pumps, the Tichka boot embellished with geometric patterns calls upon Moroccan tapestries. Swarovski crystal appliqués in jet, silver night and hematite sparkle against leathers mastered by Italian artisans. The men’s collection, featuring 6 styles, includes the standout Tizi oxford. Designed with the same geometric pattern and audacious spirit as the Tichka, the shoe sets the course for unlimited and unforgettable exploration.
