Behold A New Bejeweled Collaboration Is Born: Mawi & Bruno Magli

By: Dr. Shazia Ali

Fashion scene is buzzing with excitement with the latest glamorous alliance between East London based costume-bauble designer Mawi and the upscale Italian leather crafts champion, Bruno Magli. Last night, at an intimate gathering this new cooperation showcased the bejeweled heels, starred clutches, and spangled bijoux. Max Kibardin, the creative director of Bruno Magli and Mawi Keivom mingled with the guests and talked proudly about how this ornament line came to be.

The Bruno Magli tradition begins with one generation passing the Italian art of fine shoemaking to the next generation. The brand famous for their men’s collection has enjoyed spotlight from “OJ Simpson’s Trial” to “Frasier” references -”My Coffee With Niles” & let’s not ignore The Sopranos-“Pine Barrens” catch phrase “Bruno Magli over here!”

Venturing into evening shoes that stand out Bruno Magli has chosen Mawi as an artistic partner to add that bedazzled creative twist to their classical leather elegance. In my opinion it’s a perfect abutment -Bruno Magli’s fine leathered shoes and clutches bejeweled with Mawi’s rajah, industrialism, art deco and retro-meets-modern inspired jewels -and voila we have it! –-“Starry Shoe Heaven & Bejeweled Accessories Transcendence”!!

This 14-piece collection includes clutches ($1,875), earrings ($300), necklaces ($500), bracelets ($450), and, of course, footwear ($1,100). Expect bold jewel colors (like fuchsia and teal), animal prints, and luxe textures (such as pony hair and silk). The vibrant color story is inspired from 70’s and 80’s with a contemporary twist. The pieces will be available for pre-fall delivery (May–June 2013) on
