I have been at Four Seasons for almost 6 months now and one of the highlights of my time here has been helping to staff the brand new Aquazzura boutique, situated on Albermarle Street. Aquazzura was launched in 2011 by designer Edgardo Osorio, who previously worked for the likes of Salvatore Ferragamo and Sigerson Morrison.
The concept behind his designs is a niche one as he promotes “The Shoe” as being something which is both incredibly sexy and comfortable. Women who own these shoes liken wearing them to “walking on air”!
The Store on Albermarle street is the very first one in London and opened in early September 2015. Cushioned between the likes of Arts Club and Sketch, the boutique oozes an elegance and style which is further epitomized in the Store Manager Paula (A trained Lawyer) who all Women will envy. Must-haves include, “Fancy Nancy”- a sandal adorned with fur pom poms, the “Couture Boot”- a layered fur boot and the “Helibrunner Velvet” - a glamorous version of the Chelsea boot, and my personal favourite.
If you only buy one pair of shoes in 2016, it has to be a pair from Aquazzura.
