The Icons Collection

Collections - November 20

Mi Piaci arose from a shared desire to empower women and embrace the freedom of expression. Proudly local with our team of New Zealand designers, for over 18 years we are still doing what we love - creating footwear for women, by women.

In a celebration of New Zealand design, we are spotlighting some of our most iconic creations that you adore the most from seasons past. The Icons Collection: Ellen, Spencer, Seattle & Simara. This weekend we celebrate their coveted designs; taking you through our archives for a retrospective on how these icons have evolved over the years.

Seattle Sandal

FROM OUR DESIGNERS
"Seattle is inspired by Mi Piaci women, who live multidimensional lives and need a product that is going to blend seamlessly into each aspect in functionality and fashion. We consider the smallest of things which may not be instantly recognisable but help to elevate a design above and beyond. Seattle showcases this through our love of simplistic designs elevated through small and consistent design aspects."

Ellen Mule

FROM OUR DESIGNERS
"Ellen is a Mi Piaci classic and has been in our collection for 5 years. With a unique chunky outsole and minimalist upper, Ellen speaks to the utilitarian streak in our New Zealand DNA. Hardwearing and no-frills, Ellen is uniquely identifiable as a Mi Piaci style, without need for embellishment or artifice."

Spencer Loafer

FROM OUR DESIGNERS
"This classic loafer has been a key component of the Mi Piaci woman’s wardrobe for several years. With a great last shape and classic horse-bit trim, Spencer can be dressed up for workwear or paired with jeans and a white T-shirt. Spencer has been a great vehicle for seasonal colour over the last few years, whether croc print leather, hot pink metallic, or luxurious suede, our customers love the ability to update their seasonal palette in this versatile style."

Spencer Loafer

IN YOUR WORDS
“This is one of the most comfy shoes I ever purchased. Really great and sophisticated look for the office, but comfortable to wear all day and every day.” Grace
"I have multiple pairs of this style shoe. I love Spencer - stylish and comfortable." Ursula

Simara Mule

FROM OUR DESIGNERS
"Our Simara style was designed in response to the popularity of mules and the love of our signature electroplated heel. Pitched at a mid-height 7.5 cm heel, Simara is the perfect height to wear day-to-night, and the in-house designed, electroplated heel, elevates a simple classic style to a Mi Piaci icon."

Simara Mule

IN YOUR WORDS
“Everything you could want in a mule! Soft leather, a band that is thick enough for comfort but thin enough to flatter and elongate the foot. Plus the gold trim on the heel is spot on. Perfect with pretty much any outfit, from jeans to skirts, casual to dressy. This shoe will be a staple through the seasons.” Natalie
