Born in Venice, Cinzia began to work within the family shoe business and presented her first collection in 2010. Her shoes are the result of a personal vision, in which she combines different materials, splitting the soles and deconstructing styles, offering cutting edge, hand-crafted shoes. In her SS13 Collection Cinzia Araia continues to develop her research on interesting shapes and designs through overlapping different materials in innovative techniques, inspired by street-style. Her colour palette rarely moves away from blacks, whites and greys; whilst also embracing deeper shades of brown, blue and green. The spirit of the collection remains the same; composition and decomposition, aimed at those looking for stylish street representation.
