Fall Winter 2020
L’Atelier, Souliers Martinez’ Fall/Winter 2020 collection, pays tribute to the all-embracing creative process, at the convergence of cultures and influences. Paris is our winter city, a shelter for the cold months, inspiring inventive concentration and aesthetic research. Modern and audacious shapes are derived from intemporal motives, and geometry merges with colors and textures. Striking wintery style, elegant lines, and sensuous shapes are mirrored by off-white, wooden shades, brandy and kaki shades, and a surprisingly warm, uplifting orange. Iconic models are revisited in supple, non-braided Italian calf leather, plain or pressed with a faux-crocodile pattern.
The heel is the soul of a shoe: it generates strong, original lines, and a resolute elegance. With the perfect combination of shape and height, it gives the shoe a unique personality and permeates the look of the woman wearing them. At Souliers Martinez we pay special attention to our design: we celebrate an ancient form of Spanish craftsmanship with creativity, imagination, and humor—and a new take on contemporary elegance. The heels, carved from wood, geometrical, or golden, provide unexpected details inspired by typical Spanish chairs, terracotta pots, sharp rocks or pyramids.
Colors & Materials
The selection of colors and materials are fundamental steps at the heart of Souliers Martinez’ design process—as much as the shape of a line or the height of a heel. We locally source the choicest leather, mostly Italian hides with extraordinary texture and suppleness. The quest for the right shade is an art at the core of our DNA: we favor a limited, but delicate palette of subtle and elegant colors. Winter shades are reminiscent of a subdued Parisian elegance: white, beige, golden and brown, highlighted by a brighter touch. Summer is the realm of warm, bright, happy Spanish tints.
Explore the universe of Souliers Martinez’ Spanish know-how and artisan traditions: discover our iconic models, hand-woven or braided with thin strips of supple leather, proposed in a selection of seasonal colors.
All Souliers Martinez shoes are hand-made in Spain, following delicate artisan techniques. An outstanding feature of the brand, thin strips of supple calf leather are hand-woven or braided by women from rural communities along the Mediterranean coast of Spain. We have been determined since the beginning to produce in Spain, without outsourcing, to revive and perpetuate this outstanding local craftsmanship.
