Cinzia Araia is an italian shoes designer that began to develop collections for famous Italian brands and then, driven by her own personal vision, she launched the CINZIA ARAIA brand in 2010 to fulfil her creative passion.
Cinzia Araia collections are an embodiment of the designer, they embrace her libertarian aesthetic and provide an outlet for the darker facets of her personality. The contradictory focus of her work is structure and deconstruction with a tendency towards the gothic. Her designs are elegant and tough, engaging with classic styles yet gritty enough for a very urban context.
With years of experience and full knowledge of the shoe making process behind her, she thrives on the challenge of taking that process further, discovering new forms and structures. This evident play of composition and decomposition makes every season a new exciting experiment.
