“Elegant, timeless, emblematic”
Based on the isle of Capri, Silvana and Rossella reinterpret traditional sandals designs through a rich palette of colours and textures to pay a tribute to the island’s heyday of the 1960s.
Their story in the fashion world…
…begins even before the creation of Sofia Capri as Silvana and Rossella, the two young entrepreneurs behind the brand, have such a remarkable background at notorious
maisons de couture like Christian Dior, Salvatore Ferragamo and Vivienne Westwood.
It is during a summer trip together on the island that the two colleagues and friends felt the need to revive the legendary sandals that were once at the feet of icons such as Sophia Lauren, Brigitte Bardot or Jacqueline Kennedy.
Their way of creating, materials and inspirations
Taylor-made, Sofia Capri sandals are handcrafted with great care and passion on the island of Capri by a local family of artisans whom have been displaying their savoir-faire for over three generations.
Using only the finest leathers and raw materials carefully chosen from across Italy, every single pair is the product of the dedication for the artisanal quality of historical crafts.
“Part of the reason we founded Sofia Capri was to protect and promote a unique artisanal craft which is reflective of the true 'Made in Italy' that is famous the world over. Each single one of our sandals is created by a family that was born, has lived and carried on the sandal-making trade for three generations. All of our sandals are custom-made to order and everything from the craft itself to the raw materials and leathers used are sourced entirely in Italy"
Each sandal style is named after the paved lanes and streets of the small island. The reinterpretation of the traditional designs are sensitive to each season’s key trends thanks to a wide array of hues and texture.
“The isle of Capri is so rich in colors, textures and shapes - whether it be the dazzling handpainted ceramic tiles which adorn both private and public spaces or the intense blues of the Mediterranean that surrounds it - that inspiration is never far from reach."
Uniqueness of the designs
The sandals are about the expression of the true ‘Made in Italy’ seal with the renaissance of an age-old art where high quality, tradition and artisanship are the core values. Sofia Capri’s designers honour the heritage of the past embracing a fresh creative attitude.
Sofia Capri is nothing more than the symbol of “la dolce vita” in homage to the golden time of the isle during the 1960’s.
