This stylish interiors-meet-fashion collaboration came about after de Gournay wallpaper was installed in the Florence apartment of founder Edgardo Osorio. An introduction was made and the suggestion of a project combining each company’s particular fields of expertise was met with mutual enthusiasm. Now installed within de Gournay’s historic private residence headquarters in Milan, the hand painted ‘Amazonia’ Tropical Chinoiserie design is available as wallpaper, sold by de Gournay across their showrooms worldwide from £1,425.00 / $1,565 per panel.
Against an exquisite pink silk inspired by shades of the Palazzo walls of Aquazzura’s Florentine headquarters, the Aquazurra for de Gournay capsule shoe collection is beautifully embroidered with the Amazonian wallpaper pattern, depicting colourful birds and blooms. The pink pumps* have a round-toe shape set on a small block heel – perfect for adding a comfortable, decorative lift to free-flowing dresses. One of my favorites are the pink Love flats*, with their swishing tassels, small gold-tone heels, and wraparound ankle ties, an excellent way of adding a soft statement to an outfit. The block-heel mules* are my number ones, as they pack the prettiest punch for the investment price, with the largest square footage of silk and embroidery, plus the lengthiest lift for our legs. Which ones are your favorite?
