For Spring/Summer 2017, shoe label Arnaa journeys to the Orient with this season’s muse, Chinese legend Hua Mulan. Set against an exotic background of sumptuous satins and delicate embroideries, historically worn by China’s ruling elite, Arnaa collection is rich in exquisite details and textures, with a contemporary twist. The use of premium leather and a fine and soft quality of velvet in a sophisticated colour palette gives us a real taste of Arnaa’s great savoir-faire in shoe making, exclusively Made in Italy.
Arnaa draws inspiration from Mulan’s wardrobe and accessories, from her layered outfits that translate as opulent ruffles on the t-strap pointed toe sandals Li, on platform pumps Ling or on flat sandals Sora to the signature fan that she carries with circular panels that are echoed as cut outs on both t-bar sandals Bliss II and patent leather ballerinas Ting Tang and the flowers in her hair which appear as intricate floral embroideries on many styles such as season’s must-have Ken and Ken Lace-up flat mules, Bandist sandals and Berk pointed-toe boots.
Label’s iconic styles such as Carlotta and Bliss are also proposed with new colour combinations for embroideries, perfectly matching this season’s inspiration.
Embracing the fearless yet feminine character of warrior empress Mulan, Arnaa channels the inner determination and innate glamour of this woman, in creating a collection that is statement with precious finishing touches such as lace-up satin ribbons, hand-stitched embroidery details, yet effortlessly elegant with both high and flat heels versions. Styles in pastel blue, violet, peach, burgundy and black will definitely suit the most demanding tastes of 21st century’s fashion empresses.
