Shoe Obsession: Apologie

Apologies, this article is all about shoes!

Even though she is not a very famous designer yet, Olivia Cogniet has already come a long way in the fields of fashion industry. Learning her trade in Charles Jourdan and Robert Clergerie, she launched last season a line of footwear, called Apologie, consisting of slippers with surrealist motifs and pumps with a unique and different design. For her, shoes are just like architecture and this is pretty obvious when looking her latest designs; furniture-like heels and trompe l’oeil details are some of her unique creations. Her beliefs are mirrored into her new company. The France-based designer thinks that fashion should be at once accessibly available in terms of price and extremely exclusive in terms of its selective distribution. Remember her, because her creations are going to be a must from now on.
