Baldinini strides forward confidently


Clocking over 100 successful years and matched admirably by 100 stores across the world, high end Italian fashion shoe brand Baldinini is synonymous with fashion. Headed by its President Jimmy Baldinini who forms its third generation, its products are a firm celebrity favourite adored by fashion lovers across the world and with a huge fan following in Russia. In Dubai, its stores are located at Galleries Lafayette at  The Dubai Mall, WafiCity and BurJuman. Recently, Aviamost was able to meet and chat up with the maestro on his visit to Dubai


Mr. Baldinini, how do you create such beauty?

Human hands! In the place where my grandfather advised me, drew the first forms and set up the family’s first workshop way back in 1910, I decided to set up the brand’s modern factory where our production unit employs over 250 highly skilled workers. Our shoes are crafted entirely by hand using time-tested techniques blended with creative expertise inspired by world culture.

 

What sets apart Baldinini from the other brands?

Consistent research, an eye for detail and ergonomic sculpting sets our creations apart,   boasting Italian craftsmanship of the finest order. We have also slowly expanded to other fashion accessories.

 

Where do you get your inspiration?

My style is a tribute to women’s beauty. I enjoy turning materials into emotions... but it took a hundred years. Baldinini shoes are highly original, blend superior variety of materials and stylish good looks. Though we are constantly in touch with fashion trends and the demands of our fans, we never ignore provocation. This is what makes Baldinini irresistible to its fans.
