Your Dream Princess Shoes Have One Name: Liudmila

Does anyone have a guilty confession to make? If no, then I can go first. I’ve been hiding my inner princess for years now. The reason that little whiney fashion design worshipper came out of its castle is hidden somewhere in the brand philosophy of the following shoes you can find only in two places: the fairytales and the Liudmila collection. I’m sure the librarian near you would be excessively excited if you show up looking for a massive publication of fairytales, where the princess matriarchy and the weirdly ever-singing prince cover the topic thoroughly. I’m here to tell you about the fairytale turned into a reality.

Shoes! That’s where the real magic is these days! A perfectly-made shoe beats even the fairy godmother; it’s made in Italian factories by the hands of true Italian masters, sketched with an inspiration and care, and, most importantly, they won’t turn into slippers at midnight, when all normal clubs are just opening.

Liudmila shoes, already known as the Princess Shoes (as if it was not obvious from the photos), are the next fresh discovery on the luxury fashion radar. Designed by the former literature specialist at Wesleyan University, Connecticut Najeeba Hayat, Liudmila shoes are eccentric, yet wearable pieces flavored with the Victorian culture and, perhaps, a “slight” influence from the main fairytale factory in the world, Disney. They look so adorable but modern that you can easily match them with an elegant Dior blazer and forget about looking like a Halloween trend. No, it’s not the kind of average fashion we’re talking about. The Liudmila brand, inspired by one of the unique characters of the Russian literature, Liudmila Rutilova (from “The Petty Demon” by Fyodor Sologub), is a real luxury. And it’s not the price or the name of the manufacturer that matters. The real uniqueness of Liudmila is in the effort, inspiration, and imagination that lies behind every model. Sketched with a real vision, long-preserved mission, and a desire to help those pairs find their shelves in our clothing rooms; that’s what shapes the reason why you should support and buy these shoes.

That’s worth appreciation and encouragement. In contrast with the pop culture and consumer-oriented shopping habits of our time, these shoes speak to the inner style of the woman, and not the ad on a billboard. It’s a brand with a specific customer, and you’re either that admirer or a stranger. Some would call Hayat’s approach to these products “art” and I think they wouldn’t be wrong. Every artistic industry, especially fashion, needs a collection that has been made by the strength of thought and developed so much it became perfect. We all love a purchase with a backstory to it, and if the story has a happy end, you have a chance I’ll go back for a second purchase, no matter how many ribbons are on that high heel.

There is a princess inside us that we all, the forward-driven and ambitious women hate. But that stubborn pom-pom loving girlish fashionista seems to always sneak out when there is a delicate collection of shoes in front of you. So, if you, too, have been diagnosed with periodical princess-rush, go get your new pair of Liudmila shoes or at least try them on to know what Italian comfort feels like.
