Renowned as legendary bootmakers, their story began in Brenta Riviera in Venice in 1961 – five years before Nancy Sinatra sang the legendary These Boots Are Made for Walkin’ – and showcased a stylish selection of bespoke boots alongside other Italian luxury accessories, including handbags and shoes. The Elizabeth Street boutique offers a signature collection of ‘an entire wardrobe of boots’ for any occasion.
Alex loves working in Belgravia particularly because of the community of independent shop owners – who often collaborate with joint events – and she enjoys meeting with local residents for a catch up as well as meeting new faces when they visit the boutique. She describes Belgravia as a pocket of serenity in the heart of busy London and says that the village feel of the area – with the assortment of carefully curated independent shops, restaurants and cafes and its close community makes it a rare and treasured jewel.
“My ideal day starts with a pastry and coffee from Ole and Steen, trying on gorgeous sculptural hats at Philip Treacy, working while being surrounded by our beautiful boots at Stivaleria Cavallin on Elizabeth Street followed by lunch in Oliveto. A wander through the elegant houses in the area, and into the secluded Eccelston Yards for dinner at The Jones Family Kitchen, where the best steak comes from!”
