Any time Rosie Huntington-Whiteley wears something, it immediately jumps to the top of my shopping list. Her take on style is modern and on-trend without feeling trendy, and the same thing can be said about her just-launched shoe collection in partnership with Italian brand Gia Couture. For the collaboration, model, business owner, and entrepreneur Rosie Huntington-Whiteley co-designed a collection of four shoe styles with Gia Couture founder Barbara Borghini. Each shoe is a blend of modern design with elements from nature, including materials like radica wood and braided leather and autumnal tones ranging from hazelnut to moss green. One thing is certain: every shoe is stunning and I guarantee that you’ll spot them on every fashion insider this season.
After partnering with Danish influencer Pernille Teisbaek last year, Borghini already has a wildly successful collaboration under her belt and has made a point of having woman-led design core to her brand. “Since the launch [of Gia Couture], I’ve considered every aspect of the brand with a forward-looking approach singularly focused with each collection on making women feel special. I love meeting and speaking with strong women and this brand has given me endless opportunities to learn and grow,” Barbara Borghini explains.
Ahead, Barbara Borghini dives into the collaboration, what inspired it, and which shoes are destined to sell out.
