Originally starting her career as a designer of clothing, Laurence Dacade followed her lifelong passion in 2002 and established the eponymous shoe design label. Owner of over 500 pairs of shoes, Dacade could certainly be labelled a footwear aficionado. Her internationally successful collections have attracted footwear collaborations with Balmain, Christian Lacroix, Karl Lagerfeld, Givenchy, and Oscar de la Renta.
In 2003, buzzy French footwear designer Laurence Dacade parlayed her lifelong passion for shoes into an eponymous label. The Paris-based collection is equally focused on look and craftsmanship: each style melds of-the-moment details—think rocker hardware and metallic finishes—with top-notch Italian manufacturing. The resulting pairs include gem-studded Western boots, triple-buckle ballet flats, and bow-topped slide-on sandals; in other words, shoes that you’ll start planning whole outfits around.
