Vania Romoff Unveils New Line Of Stylish Yet Functional Footwear
Vania Romoff, known for her dreamy shapes and luxuriant fabrics, returns with a different aesthetic to complement the times. Essentials by Vania Romoff had started out catering to those who looking for practical yet fashionable outerwear. The idea, however, has since extended itself to footwear — kitten heels made from vegan leather.
"The choice to use vegan leather was always clear to us," Vania shares. "We value sustainability and support anything locally made."
The new Footwear Edit is a no-frills line of fashionable footwear; birthed from a consciousness of practical design, it has since launched online and is now available for every fashionista looking for a trusty pair of heels. They may, in fact, turn out to be your most faithful pair: a no-muss, no-fuss type of shoe that's both comfortable and impressive.
"The kitten heel to me is such a chic and effortless kind of heel," the designer says. "It's dressy and practical enough to wear all day." Vania, who's also a fan of the nineties minimalist heel, credits the vintage trend as the inspiration for the new addition to her Essentials line.
The shoes come in two designs — the two-strap sandal and the multi-strap sandal, both of which transcend seasonality and come in a triptych of stylish yet practical colours. Handmade from vegan leather, each design comes in white, black, and earthy tones of nude or brown. Made with a square toe silhouette, the shoes also feature slender straps that perfectly frame dainty feet.
Romoff and her team, who have been working on the collection since February, have said that the line aims to celebrate local craftsmanship. "To have the shoes handcrafted and produced in Marikina was also something we felt very strongly about," Vania comments. In these unprecedented times, supporting the local and sustainable efforts of one of our very own sounds like a great idea to us.
The Footwear Edit is available on their website.
