ABOUT MARI

Born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, Mari Giudicelli is a model and footwear designer living in NYC. The debut collection from her eponymous line is inspired by the desire to lead a less cluttered life by focusing on the essentials. With a subtle nod to retro, the collection embodies a deep appreciation for craftsmanship, materials and details.

The leathers borrow traits from a range of historical influences and are combined with modern shapes and materials. The result is a contemporary expression that offers a nostalgic connection while maintaining its overarching sense of modernity.

Mari Giudicelli shoes are produced in a family-run factory in her native Brazil.
