We’ve already talked about the beautiful Ivori store located in El Born, where among all the amazing brands they have, one really stands out: About Arianne. Their original and dreamy shoes are real timeless pieces, and even better, are 100% made in Spain. Fall in love with this local brand, just like we have!
Defined as a slow-fashion footwear brand conceived and established in Barcelona, About Arianne was created in 2012 by Ariadna Guirado and Ernest Vidal. Their philosophy is based on comfort, quality and design, and we assure you will get the three of them. About Arianne’s shoes are comfy (even with heels!), while offering original designs in the best materials, which makes them the best investment pieces… and they aren’t even that expensive as their shoes are priced at around 180 euros.
“About Arianne is not baroque or pretentious and is not based on seasonal trends. About Arianne is simple, timeless, handmade and very close”, said designer Ariadna to Vogue Spain back in 2012, and all these values are still present in the Barcelona-based brand. Their simple but strong image translates into beautiful campaigns that will make you already swoon over the shoes and bags (which they’ve recently added to the SS2016 collection). And just wait until you see them in person, you will fall in love!
Their studio/showroom used to be located in El Born, but recently About Arianne moved to the soon-to-be local hotspot in Barcelona, Poblenou. Even though they are not open to the public yet, you can still shop online on their website or at the different stores they are featured (like Ivori). Important information: most of the winter collection is on sale right now online, go get them! These shoes are definitely made for walking… and loving.
