Capritouch, a lifestyle brand launched 2009 in the Capri Palace luxury hotel on the Italian island, has now a store in Dubai Mall where everyone can meet with a cobbler and design their very own pair of sandals – measured to fit their feet perfectly. Also the initials or lucky numbers can be carved on the inside of the sandals to make your pair truly personalized. And all this in just 20 minutes. Pretty cool, right?
You can go as minimalist or creative as you want, the choice of the sandal styles, colours and Swarovski elements is huge. I decided to create a pretty minimalistic model using a combination of the finest grey and pink python leather.
The Capritouch store in Dubai Mall (ground floor, next to Galeries Lafayette), is definitely worth visit!
“Born and raised” in the heart of Europe’s stylish set, Capritouch represents Italian elegance combined with a modern twist. Launched in 2009, Capritouch embodies Capri island’s unique vibe into bold colours and fine fabrics. At the same time, high quality and creativity are guaranteed by each and every specially designed handmade item. Hand-crafted sandals constitute the brand’s signature accessory, since they are destined to fulfill customers special needs, reflect their personalities and add some glam to their footprints with Swarovski stones.
Coupled with Ludovica Andreoni’s – the talented Italian designer – leading the handmade jewellery project, Capritouch scores perfection with sophisticated adornments made by colourful metals, precious and semiprecious stones. By expanding its availability in Middle East with its flagship store at the Dubai Mall, Capritouch makes a resonant “invasion” in the region’s aesthetics, by adding a full-time summery feeling in the oriental everyday life.
The most unique aspect of the brand are their Italian cobblers, who have skilfully brought back the ancient handcrafted art of making sandals, and can create your perfect pair of made-to-measure leather sandals in less than 30 minutes. This process allows customers to design their own pair of sandals, which fit their feet perfectly, by selecting their preferred height of the heel, the colour of the leather strap, their precious stones, corals and Swarovski crystals for a bedazzled look. To top it all off, the cobblers then sculpt the client’s initials on the sole, emphasising their distinctiveness.
