NEW YORK — Fiorentini + Baker will mark a decade in business with a limited edition of its Eternity Three Buckle boot, which will retail for $700 at the brand’s flagship at 54 Mercer Street here.
“The 10th anniversary is a very happy occasion for me and to celebrate it, it was important to me to re-create one of the classic styles in its original form. I originally conceived the line as a collection of wearable footwear — cool and comfortable pieces that women and men can wear around the clock, that lasts in their wardrobe,” designer and founder Deborah Baker told WWD.

Baker will host an event at the boutique Nov. 3, where the brand will unveil a coffee table book, the first in a series of art installations and new product categories. These include handbags, belts and jackets, as well as the new children’s line Fiorentini + Baker Junior. Baker will also be on hand to sign pairs of the updated buckle boots, of which only 50 were produced.
Currently the brand has three stores in Bologna, Italy, London’s Notting Hill, and the flagship in New York that opened in January. Baker is looking to open a boutique in Los Angeles next year.
