Gia x Pernille Teisbaek
In 2016, on a quest to reinvent the luxury shoe industry, Barbara Borghini gave birth to Gia, a personal and contemporary label. Taking its name from the designer's daughter, Ginevra, the brand quickly became a firm favourite among the most stylish luxury shoe fans, from Kendall Jenner to Hailey Bieber, to Ashley Graham, Chiara Ferragni, and more. And for good reason: Gia Borghini shoes have it all. Their distinctive style and sculptural silhouettes make them the perfect accessory for adding a touch of character to any fashionable ‘fit. Equally determined to stand out from the crowd, Barbara makes sure her Gia Borghini collections are all about her customers. In a world – and an industry – dominated by men, she proves that women also have their place at the top. After growing up in Italy and training in communications and marketing at Central Saint Martins (London) and Polimoda fashion school (Florence), it was clear she was destined for great things. Armed with her technical knowledge, her discerning eye and her avant-garde minimalist style, the designer has made her mark, with shoes crafted by expert artisans to offer comfort, confidence and power to today's women. Showing her admiration and profound respect for the women around her, Barbara Borghini likes to commit to new collaborations with women who are as modern and inspiring as she is. Women like model and businesswoman Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and, more recently, Pernille Teisbaek. The latter partnership resulted in several shoe collections, perfectly combining the Italian expertise and attention to detail of the Barbara Borghini founder, with the typical Swedish casual cool of Pernille Teisbaek. Time to fall head over heels with the ankle boots, heeled sandals and boots with cloud-like soles from Gia X Pernille Teisbaek.
