The activity of making prototypes | Le Silla Luxury Shoes | Luxury Innovation | Scoop.it

The creative work of the designer, season after season, doesn’t have any stop. From the ordinate caos of his desk, the best ideas were born… from drawing to collage of leather, accessories and metal details… from the approximate shoe to the real prototype… So, with patience and care of any detail, Le Silla creations were born.

Is India The Next Big Player in Luxury Retail?: style file: daily fashion, party, and model news | Luxury Innovation | Scoop.it

A country familiar with all things luxe

luxefiles's insight:

It will be interesting to see how the luxe stores open in India. I think the traditional boxy glass building that work in China and Korea might be well met in the first instance but I think there is an opportunity to do something quite different in this market that actually has quite sophisticated luxury taste.
