You are cordially invited to join us for a trunk show with Norman Vilalta on March 5 and 6 from 11:00 am to 7:00 pm each day. Offering both bespoke and made-to-order shoes, Norman Vilalta is a classically trained shoemaker with a modern eye for detail.
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.
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.
Alongside some faces familiar to us here at Leffot (Phillip Car, Tony Gaziano, Dean Girling, Pierre Corthay, and Tommaso Melani, among others), Norman recently took part in the BeShoes event held at the Stefano Bemer workshop during Pitti Uomo 87. We’re proud to host Sr. Vilalta for his first US trunk show this March. We hope you’ll take the opportunity to come see his beautiful work.
