Zara, women's shoes at the cutting edge of fashion.
The style of fashion house Zara can be summed up in just three words - trendy, chic and modern. As well as collections of ready-to-wear and accessories directly inspired by the catwalks, the Spanish brand has put its name to a line of bold footwear for women. Rhinestone sandals, ballet pumps with laces, studded trainers or vertiginous high heels, fashion-lovers can't get enough of Zara's must-have footwear.
Changing fashion that comes and goes.
Behind Spanish company Zara, there is an innovating concept, one that has brought profound changes to the world of ready-to-wear fashion. Founded in the 1970's by Amancio Ortega Gaona, the son of a railwayman, the brand wanted all women to be able to afford pieces inspired by the work of major designers. So, it decided to revisit the creations of luxury fashion houses, and made models at affordable prices. Clutch bags, clothing, accessories and footwear with original lines, the label explores haute couture classics as well as the must-haves of the moment.
Constantly seeking innovation, Zara favours the emergence of fleeting fashion. Instead of following the traditional rhythm of the seasons, each month the brand proposes new collections brought out only once, positioning itself on the cusp of the latest trends. Tweed jackets, mid-length embroidered coats and revisited leather boots, Zara is continuously rethinking its ranges with cuts and colours lifted from renowned couture houses, like Chanel, Chloé and Isabel Marant.
Apart from its ranges of chic and casual ready-to-wear and sportswear, Zara proposes outstanding collections of footwear. The Spanish fashion giant collaborates with over 200 designers worldwide, who skilfully reinvent high heels, boots, ankle boots, ballet pumps and flat lace-ups, that are effortlessly transferred from the catwalks to the street. As well as playing around with graphic cuts and stylised heels, the brand loves producing the wow factor with creations made by mixing materials, or with fringes or python prints. Suede boots, velvet sandals, colour block platform heels, cage boots or flat patent leather lace-ups, the urban, resolutely contemporary look of the models proposed by the brand holds major appeal.
Thanks to its concept of fashion inspired by haute couture and accessible to everyone, Zara has managed to transform the world of ready-to-wear. The way the brand reinterprets the trends of the moment in its different collections, means anyone can have modern, trendy shoes in their wardrobes.
