Barbara Briones, young shoe designer extraordinaire, has recently launched a three shoe collaboration collection with retailer Anthropologie.
The Barbara Briones for Anthropologie shoe collection, which is currently being sold on Anthropologie.com, include a pair of colorful and rich hand-woven slingbacks, a brown boot perfect for autumn, and a sexy t-strap heel, all which incorporate Briones’ masterful signature woven leather technique into the design of the shoes.
In an exclusive interview with Meets Obsession, the Chilean designer tells us about her inspiration behind the recent collaboration with Anthropologie, “This Fall I had the chance to collaborate with Anthropologie, and create these specially made pieces, handcrafted at our atelier in Santiago de Chile. I have long been inspired by the work of South American artisans, along with the powerful geography of these countries” said Briones.
The collection is an embodiment of all Briones’ obsessions; hand-made woven leather, mixing colors that are reminiscent of traditional woven café chairs and her time spent in Buenos Aires.
