Clorinda Antinori Italian Shoes will be opening a 1,362 SF retail store at River Oaks Shopping Center in Houston, Texas.
CLORINDA ANTINORI focuses on producing the highest quality women’s and men’s shoes. The shoes are manufactured in small family-run factories in Italy, where leather craftsmanship has been perfected over the course of centuries. The brand’s focus on quality means only the softest and most durable leathers are used. The result is an extremely comfortable and timeless collection of shoes suitable for all occasions, be it formal or casual.
Today, the brand also operates retail stores in Naples, Florida and Florence, Italy. It also wholesales through specialty stores in New York City and Chicago.
CLORINDA ANTINORI – BRAND HISTORY
CLORINDA ANTINORI is a private Italian brand born in the Tuscan hills of Italy in the 1300s. Renowned silk merchants, bankers, winemakers, and fashion designers, the Antinori family is an emblem of the Italian renaissance.
- In the 1970s five of the Antinori sisters began a line of custom evening gowns. In 1990 that line became “Clorinda Antinori”, a ready to wear silk clothing line for the city woman. The brand was a pioneer in the world of ready to wear, combining quality, beauty, and comfort.
- In 2010, Clorinda Antinori began partnering with local shoe artisans from the region of Tuscany in Italy to design its first collection of Italian shoes. Native to the Tuscan region and pioneers to the art of leather treatment and shoemaking, these artisans embrace the Antinori legacy.
Led by the same principles with which it was built, the brand has created a loyal following of fashion-conscious women and men with a taste for both traditional and modern Italian design.
