About Arianne is always revisiting the classic styles and our mediterranean roots as a starting point. In search of timelessness in every collection and based in our Barcelona studio, our collections are designed for a contemporary woman with a classy essence. Feminist and environmentally conscious, passionated for design but choosing quality over quantity. Focused on wellbeing and purpose.
The design process starts from a concept on every collection and throwing out all the ideas that sprang our mind. This is the fun part. After discussing them, we draw some sketches and share opinions with the whole team. By discarding these and that we arrive to a final selection of models that do not follow any trend but our real and personal taste. We then choose the colors, materials, soles and finishes to start with samples.
Welcome to Elx, the most traditional place in Spain to make shoes. All of our shoes are made there in the same way as it has always been done in Spain. Together with the artisans, we choose local products and top-quality Spanish leathers and other materials.
Relying on the experience of the talented craftsmen in Elx is a way of supporting their work and preserving their tradition alive.
We work together with real and local artisans as a way to keep alive a traditional craftsmanship in our country, respecting their procedures and ensuring a nice and healthy environment. Both our team and our workers respect equality of sex. In fact, women compose more than half of our manufacturers, having fair and equal wages.
By working with local providers we reduce the use of energy and waste of water. Every shoe and packaging generates as little waste as possible. And when it comes to the leather, every new collection is a new step forward towards a vegan approach. Every time we do use animal leather, we do it very consciously.
When thinking through every detail of the brand, packaging is an important one we always take special care of. It is completely sustainable: it has no plastic on it, the little paper it uses is recycled, plus it is renewable so you can use it over and over again as a beautiful storage box to keep your shoes safe and sound.
Keep track of the designs because we like to make some small changes every season!
