Design and development manager Michaela McDonough confirmed Estilo Emporio would be exhibiting its latest autumn winter 2011 collection at the Sydney show.
“We’re quite unusual in that we work quite close to the market. Retailers will be able to order what’s on display for immediate delivery,” she said. “The collection showcases the perfect mix between strong, determined, clean classics, and fanciful fashion; bags cover every look from ladylike totes to utilitarian satchels to corset laced and animal print bucket bags.”
“Estilo Emporio bridges the gap between high-end designer accessories and mass-produced lesser-quality accessories. We aim to create beautiful and fashion-forward accessories that bring a touch of international chic to the every day. Our distinctive pieces showcase innovative designs and superior craftsmanship that continue to set trends season after season, bringing Australian women luxe fashion accessories to rival their European contemporaries.”
The Australian Shoe Fair would see the brand channelling forward trends in a unique way, she said. “Signature to Estilo Emporio, expect a flavour of biker chic with tough boots and hardware to match. After a period practically dominated by silver, gold and brass fittings make a comeback! ”
Exploring a neutral palette of sand, slate, camel, and chocolate across various leather treatments, the Estilo Emporio range would offer “eclectic elegance and street style,” she said, adding that the brand viewed the Australian Shoe Fair as key to its growth strategy.
“Estilo Emporio has a strong following nationally, but we aim to continue to grow the brand’s awareness and increase its accessibility by adding to our stockist list. This will hopefully enable us to keep up with the growing demand for the product Australiawide. ”
“Estilo Emporio continues to grow and succeed by keeping up to date with the latest in accessories design and production. A constantly evolving product mix ensures we stay both fresh in our industry and top of mind for the Australian consumer.”
Estilo Emporio will be on show at the Australian Shoe Fair from 11-13 February 2011 at Sydney Exhibition Centre.
