The 'Rose En Fleur' Couture Collection
When designer Freya Rose launched her eponymous brand, she set out to create timeless pieces to treasure forever. Using exquisite materials, such as mother of pearl, brass, and sterling silver, she has done exactly that.
The ‘Couture Collection,’ launched once a year, features even more intricate designs. Due to the complexity involved, only 20 pairs of each style can be made per year, making them must-have exclusives.
Read on for the inspiration behind this year’s Couture Collection.
The Inspiration for the Collection
This season Freya was inspired by the beauty of nature. In some ways, the new collection isn’t too much of a departure, with the brand’s signature mother of pearl motifs remaining.
However, now Freya is taking that idea one step further, by supplying sparkle and much-needed glamour as we return to dressing up. “I wanted to create wearable works of art that transcend the boundaries of design whilst reflecting the wearer's individuality,” Freya tells us. “I took inspiration from art, inspired by Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s abundant roses and architectural design by Japanese artists such as Eitoku.”
Freya has focused on her niche, collaborating with her team of artisans to create shoes that tell a thousand tales. “My focus was on bold design, lavish details and sculptural elegance.” Freya remarks.
Return to party season calls for a truly fabulous pair of shoes. A contemporary look at the old world of haute couture, these shoes could easily be talking pieces on mantelpieces as well as accompaniments to majestic dresses.
Using only the finest and most beautiful materials, each heel design is carefully hand inlayed by our artisans.
'Rose in Bloom Noir' Platform Shoes
The collection is a blend of elegance and after-dark glamour. Shoes like our ‘Rose in Bloom Noir’ are an idea of sheer romanticism, manifested. Celebrate softness with this floral heel design. Those new to Freya Rose designs will be fascinated by the light of the pearl and how beautiful the gemstone can make you feel.
Our platform heel designs feature a classic and beautiful silhouette that has timeless appeal and is universally flattering.
These shoes are more than investment pieces - they eschew trends in favour of unique, and timeless design; so you can treasure them forever.
'Rose in Bloom Gold' Platform Shoes
Our 'Rose in Bloom Gold' platform shoes are set on a towering stiletto heel that's balanced by a sturdy 4cm platform. They've been made in Spain from luminous shimmering taupe suede, and feature a standout heel encrusted with hand-cut pearl and brass, set in a floral motif.
Freya Rose uses the house's signature pearl heel details to great effect with these showstopping flower-patterned platform shoes.
'Rene' Black Block Heels
The ‘Rene’ shoes have everlasting appeal. Handmade with brass, ivory Mother of Pearl and set in black resin, the classic black hue will go with anything in your closet.
The 'Rene' shoe also features a cut-out detail in the silhouette, and a leg accentuating ankle strap for extra date night appeal.
'Rozu' Champagne Block Heels
Our ‘Rozu’ shoes are celebratory-worthy ivory block heels. Referencing Eitoku’s ‘Birds and Flowers of the Four Seasons,’ they are detailed with a floral pattern crafted from brass and mother of pearl.
The ivory colour of the butter-soft suede makes this pair your dream dinner companion.
'Mineko' Black Ankle Boots
‘Mineko’ are limited edition black suede ankle boots with a floral pearl block heel detail. Every woman needs a pair of staple black boots as we enter into Autumn. Luxurious and completely necessary, choose ‘Mineko’ for boots with an interesting point of difference. Black ankle boots are forever, but originality is key.
Mother of Pearl Bags
Incorporating mother of pearl into her work in unexpected ways, the Couture Collection also features the brand’s first mother of pearl clutch bags. Aphrodite Ivory, Athena Ivory, and Athena Grey are instantly iconic handbags.
The perfect bag to use for both day and evening; they are embellished with all-over pearl pieces and topped with a statement-making pearl clasp. Keep yours close and cue compliments.
Discover carefully cultivated visions of opulence. Our Couture Collection launches on Wednesday the 3rd of November.
