Designer's Note: Feature Ring

Designer's Notes - November 17

Our favourite finishing touch? Put a ring on it.

Refined yet ornate, the feature ring is one of our favourite details this season. Sculpture and architecture are both important inspirations behind our design process; we often seek to reference these, and spend a lot of time developing our own unique trims and details to do so.

Our signature feature ring appears on a few different styles this season, and we’re proud to have developed it ourselves. Sarah Street (Mi Piaci’s designer and brand manager) wanted the ring to have a subtle curve to compliment the lines of the foot, and this vision required a comprehensive design process.

From Sarah’s first drawings and some simple cardboard models, we then moved on to analysing 3D renderings of our design. Finally we opened our very own mould to create the ring we envisioned.

We loved the outcome so much that we incorporated it on four different styles. The inherent balance of this feature ring works perfectly with minimalist silhouettes like mules and slingbacks – and it’s the perfect dash of luxe.
