Cinzia Araia Fairy-god-cobbler

Born in Venice, in 1974, Cinzia Araia grew up in her father’s shoemaking workshop. From her childhood, she's preserved her high expectations towards impeccable work, and an undying love for fine leather. She launched her brand in the Spring/Summer of 2010. A mere year later, she already had two lines: the trendy Cinzia Araia, and the sporty CA by Cinzia Araia. She bases her work on the unique look of her creations, obtained by endlessly constructing and deconstructing the shoe. Flat wedges, a black and white palette, with almost gothic, androgynous and structured lines that let the heels flow towards the ankle.
