BELLA BELLE ~ POETRY OF LOVE
Dedicated to all of us who have been moved and touched by love –
Bella Belle Shoes , worldwide leading brand in bridal and evening shoes, just released their new collection: Poetry of Love.
Inspired by the writings of female poets, the Poetry of Love editorial explores the depth and complexities of love. Just like a great poem does, this pictorial will stir emotion and leave you pondering about love. Set in the poetic Lake Como, a summer retreat destination for writers throughout the ages, it is equally a visual pleasure and a poignant story about love.
Behind this masterpiece editorial are some of the best creatives in the industry. A master at her/his craft, each person adds her/his unique interpretation of the theme Poetry of Love to create a nuanced story. The result is a magnificent synergy on the never ending quest for beauty that none could have achieved on her own.
Making beautiful and comfortable shoes is our passion. This time, we wrap them in the art of poetry. Inspired by beautiful love poems, each shoe is endearingly named after a famous female poet. The collection is a nuanced fusion of poetic elements and Bella Belle aesthetics. It is our interpretation of poetry in shoe form: the fluidity found in the embroidery, the airiness in a floating tulle bow, and the rhyme of exquisite beadwork.
