Your Favorite Shoe Model Mari Giudicelli Now Has Her Own Line!

For many years we have been seeing the shapely legs and pretty face of Mari Giudicelli as she appeared as muse for many of our favorite brands out there, showing off their footwear collections. She’s been in New York for the past five years, but this Brazilian born babe has captured the attention of many a retailer and fashion house, including Urban Outfitters, who has written out an interesting expose about the model and rather talented shoemaker, who appeared on the Take it Slow lookbook. Seeing as how quickly Mari Giudicelli moved to launch her own shoe line, we can easily imagine her love for the gorgeous pieces.

Mari Giudicelli Luxury Shoe Line

Some interesting facts? Mari Giudicelli never brushes her hair or uses conditioners but she loves washing her face as she wakes up and before going to bed. Born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, beach shots seem to be her best moments in front of the camera; she seems to be born for that part of the world and perfectly made for travel. Plus, she apparently sees shapes and colors more than images with definition, which can easily lend to her more artistic side, which in turn has helped aid her in creating the loveliest of shoe collections.

Mari has modeled for Mansur Gavriel and Eckhaus Latta, among many others. She has played muse to designers such as Simon Porte Jacquemus, and has become the face for Maryam Nassir Zadeh’s boutique collections. She is a photographer with an aptitude for e-commerce and a good head on her shoulders, having graduated from the New York Fashion Institute of Technology, among the top 10 fashion schools from around the world, just last May.

She has decided to greet the New Year with the start of her own eponymous luxury shoe line, a dream come true for the student who stuck to the footwear classes and pretty much lived in the shoe lab. “I was making everything by hand. I just loved manipulating leather, even the smell of it was exciting to me.”

Living in Brooklyn, she has been working on her prototypes, with four shapes more or less ready to become available in the spring; this includes an ankle boot, a loafer, and apparently a mule with a high vamp and a low, block heel. If you are wondering about the materials used, apparently we can expect glossy lizard or suede, the pieces lined with rabbit or calf. Rabbit is what we are cheering for here though as that is one fur that is just the perfect softness against our skins.

The news about Mari Giudicelli’s shoe line was announced but a week ago on Instagram and it has become official now. We can add another lovely designer and artist to our list of favorites soon enough it appears as Mari Giudicelli begins to carve out her own shoe empire in this rather competitive field. “I wanted to create styles that could carry you through the day, that would be elegant, but also comfortable, and also something that’s not extremely trendy. You can wear it with a pair of jeans and a T-shirt, or you can wear it with a pretty dress,” she told Vogue. Now we just need to get our hands on them!
