Looking To The Sky: Livie & Luca Unveils Celestial-Inspired Spring/Summer ‘12

Drawing inspiration from the celestial, Livie & Luca’s spring/summer shoe collection is truly out of this world. The collection is a robust selection of fresh new designs, including the cloud-accented Dawn, starry Nova, and rocket ship Juno styles, as well as vibrant new colors for Livie & Luca mainstays- bright blue Blossom, red Elephants, and pink Peacocks styles. At the suggestion of customers and after numerous fittings, Livie & Luca’s shoes have a new custom tailored fit, including the expanded baby shoe collection.  Shoes retail from $36 for baby (sizes 0-6 months to 18-24 months); $46-$48 for children (sizes 4 to 13); and $98 for the Nola ballet flats for women (sizes 5 to 10) at www.livieandluca.com.

Designer Mitzi Rivas, who co-founded Livie & Luca in 2005, was inspired by the open sky, planets, and the feeling of floating for their latest collection. Additional new styles include the Flutter butterfly sandals, Boa sandals with a subtle snake detail, and the scallop-edged Ivy sandals. Classic styles are given a new twist with bold colors, including the light blue Pio Pios with red bird accents, the shimmery red Celestinas, and the teal Barcelonas.

This season, the Nola ballet flats for women are available in an earthy, sustainable jute- a great neutral that goes with everything- and a rich red for added intrigue. Designed to complement the Fun Dots in jute and the Ruche in red styles for children, the Nolas are a hip alternative to traditional mommy-and-me styles.

For customers seeking an animal product-free alternative, the striped Ferris shoes are 100% vegan and come in nature-inspired colors and playful prints- bark, bamboo, and navy for boys, and flora and kiku for girls. Made of breathable fabric and featuring a flexible sole, these comfortable, lightweight shoes are perfect for playtime.

With a mission to “tread lightly” on the environment and to give back whenever possible, Livie & Luca responsibly sources and ensures their factories offer ideal working conditions and fair wages. Each month, they donate 10% of their online profits to a worthy charity and regularly donate shoes to local children’s hospitals and overseas for relief efforts.

The spring/summer collection is now available at stores nationwide and at www.livieandluca.com.
