The story of Sprezzatura began in The Philippines. We are traditionalist cordwainers producing truly limited edition, handmade ladies’ footwear. Our designer shoes are purposefully feminine with a nod to classic and vintage designs that appeal to the sophisticated woman who enjoys socialising, dressing up and has an eye for the unique.
We are proud to call ourselves a ‘slow’ fashion brand, as opposed to the modern world of fast fashion. Our luxury collections season by season are truly limited edition – we only produce a small number of pairs and never use the same print twice.
We are proud to support both the UK textile industry and our artisans in the Philippines. By combining these two traditional industries, and by using quality materials such as silk, wool, and toile de jouy fabric, our luxury shoes are truly unique and stylish that marries traditional vintage flare and classical silhouettes.
Our product lines are truly limited edition and we never release shoes made of the same fabric print twice. What you will see on our collection page will only be available while stock lasts and until the end of the season.
All our shoes are created in small batches using fabrics borrowed from the world of interior design. Our designer shoes are made in the Philippines by hand by skilful artisans and cordwainers in the shoe making town of Marikina. Marikina city was founded by the Jesuits in 1630 and in 1887, shoemaking started to flourish becoming the city’s principal industry.
