Norman Vilalta Trunk Show, December 3 and 4

You are cordially invited to join us for a trunk show with Norman Vilalta this Thursday and Friday, December 3 and 4. Norman Vilalta is a classically trained shoemaker with a modern eye for detail. All of Norman’s shoes are unique creations that attest to his love of creating beautiful objects. They’re truly pieces of art, and Norman is a true artist, taking inspiration from sources as varied as Ferran Adrià to contemporary Nike sneakers.

Norman studied and practiced law for a number of years, but at 31 decided he wanted to pursue something that truly motivated him. In 2002, he moved from his home in Argentina to Florence, where he trained in the Stefano Bemer workshop. Since then he’s been crafting shoes in his workshop in Barcelona.
