The designer who went from designing cars to shoes is launching his new footwear collection and presenting it digitally during Paris Fashion Week
Rather than working seasonally, Italian designer Walter De Silva focuses on creating one collection per year as a way to highlight his slow fashion philosophy and his goal: to create long-lasting, elegant and timeless pieces.
Walter De Silva Shoes reflects the renowned designer’s personal heritage: his maternal grandparents worked as artisans running a small business creating footwear for the Milanese bourgeoisie. Design is not only a passion but runs in the family.
Walter De Silva’s knowledge and experience allowed him to merge comfort, style and quality.
Indeed, each pair is designed and 100% made in Italy in limited edition and the weight of the shoe (less than 160 grams) makes it one of the lightest shoes on the market.
For his next collection that will be presented during Paris Fashion Week at the end of the month, Walter De Silva wanted to highlight his best-selling pairs in new materials and colors to create a vibrant world: featuring flats and stilettos, the COLORANDO collection shows the brand’s craftmanship and work inspired by industrial and automobile design.
For his digital presentation taking place during Paris Fashion Week, Walter de Silva is collaborating with up and coming artist Cami Alberti for a 3D guided tour in a museum showcasing Alberti’s art and Walter’s shoes.
