The brand was founded in 2001 by english born designer Deborah Baker.
The philosophy behind every collection cannot be attributed to a particular theme or event and certainly does not conform to any trend. It evolves from a subconscious process, sparked by an old piece of furniture, a film or a spectacular piece of architecture. The results are simple, yet quite beautiful.
Making of the small, family run factories, where the shoes are produced, are a world away from the glossy magazines and glamourus worldwide boutiques where they inevitably end up.
But perhaps it is the detachment from the fashion scene that gives the shoes their undeniable edge. An equally important strand of the FIORENTINI+BAKER philosophy is the use of the materials. One-off pieces vintage fabrics, soft, supple leather and velvet smooth suede adorn the shoes and boots. It’s these characteristics, combined with an uncompromising attention to detail that has become the signature of every FIORENTINI+BAKER collection.
