She was raised in her father’s shop, in Buenos Aires, and she was inspired by his activity in the garment industry. In fact, her father’s business grew up so much that it became one of the major presences in that field in South America. Lucila Iotti learned everything there was to know about fine fabrics and she fell in love with all the details she inserted in her work. Nowadays, her creations speak clearly about quality the designer invests in her work -she designs shoes, and believe me, she does it more than well.

Most of Lucila Iotti’s shoes are made from patent leather, suede, satin and vinyl, celebrating, in a very personal manner, the memory of her mother. She was probably the one who inspired and thought femininity to Lucila, who confesses to have worn high heels and lipstick when her mother left home and she remained alone.
Her creativity and style soon began to make her noticed around the fashion world, so it’s no wonder that Patricia Field heard of her first collection. The fashion adviser from Sex and the City always had a thing for bold shapes and strong colors. This is how we can best describe Lucila Lotti’s shoes. They are fashionably stylish, in bright colors, brave shapes, and beautiful.
So, if creativity is hereditary, like in many other parent-child couples (Paul and Stella McCartney, Rosa and Margherita Missoni, and, just like in our case, Jorge Iotti & Lucila Iotti), then we shouldn’t do anything but visiting her website to see more shoes. It is definitely worth it.
