These Shoes Are Made For…

…looking pretty in.

Rene Caovilla, a famous Venetian shoemaker whose creations are worn by the fashion elite, including Jennifer Aniston and Heidi Klum, has opened a new branch in The Pearl – Qatar, which now has Caovilla’s Fall/Winter 2011 collection. Caovilla aims to bring Venice into the hearts of Doha, and has done, by all means, with his bejewelled and hand-crafted shoes.


Here is Joey McMakin, a designer for Eduoardo Caovilla who Marhaba met at Caovilla’s opening on Wednesday 12th, modelling two shoes. We had a very interesting chat about his favourite subject (shoes), from the perspective of men designing for women, to the glimpses of a sparkly heel underneath an abaya to all the work and technicalities that goes into making just one shoe (which is, trust me, a lot more than you might think).

And here is a little workshop, showing the effort and craftsmanship that go into making a shoe and all the shoe jewellery and fiddly bits.

Caovilla is offering custom-made shoes for the ladies of Qatar (apparently inspired by the luxury of The Pearl-Qatar!) – so you can choose from a selection of material with swarvoski studded crystals exclusive to Qatar and have one of a kind shoes!

Here a couple of favourites – the Beyonce – named after the singer, it’s a classic, timeless stiletto.

And for those who only want a slight heel, the very pretty Sogno di farfalle, in English, the dream of the butterfly.

Caovilla has a very lovely selection of what can only be described as Cinderella shoes, so if you have a bit of a thing for high fashion shoes, take yourself down to The Pearl and have a look.
