The Australian designer Jeremy Angelis’ passion for designing ladies shoes was fuelled by his Greek grandfather who lovingly created handmade shoes for a living. Jeremy went on to work at an Italian shoe manufacturer before setting up his own high luxury women’s footwear label – Nicolina.
Jeremy didn’t have to ponder too much re the name of his new label – he chose to use his partner’s name stating: "NICOLINA is dedicated to my best friend, partner, inspiration and love of the same namesake. Creating luxurious NICOLINA footwear and accessories is a labour of love, requiring an abundance of energy & vision, imagination, endless passion, and an insatiable desire to create beauty. My objective is to reach a higher level and satisfy the needs of sophisticated women seeking unique, elegant, limited editions. NICOLINA is my tribute to women."
Now that is romantic!!! -But how else can you ensure each woman feels she is wearing Cinderella’s glass slipper if you do not have a Prince Charming to lovingly create beautiful designs? There may not actually be a glass slipper in Jeremy’s designs but he does the next best thing – a single Swarovski Crystal placed in every sole. A good reason to prop your feet on the desk/table so all can admire – not very lady like but who cares?
Nicolina’s SS10 collection is named “Sirena” after the Greek mermaid who realises her songs lead men to their deaths and so banishes herself to live alone. When you see the collection you definitely won’t want to banish your pins away from these shoes.
And Jeremy’s latest exciting shoe news is Pietro Bertolini’s ‘Museo Internazionale della Calzatura’ – Italy’s International Shoe Museum in the historic shoe-making city of Vigevano (Milano) - will add NICOLINA luxury shoe style ‘Confidenza’ in pink embossed suede to its Museum’s collection of over 2,000 pieces. “Being asked to include our ‘Confidenza’ style as part of Italy’s most important and celebrated Shoe Museum Collection is a great honour and a fantastic way for NICOLINA to celebrate our first 5 years! Entering shoe-making history and being exhibited amongst talented creators such as Christian Louboutin, Casadei, Manolo Blahnik and Jimmy Choo is just wonderful. Importantly, being able to share our creativity and passion with luxury shoe lovers and future creators is fundamental for the future of our craft.” commented Jeremy.
Now that is a “happy ever after “ story.
