MIDEAST EXCLUSIVE: No. 21 designer Alessandro Dell’Acqua has reinterpreted his signature No.21 bow mules, the statement peep-toe style slip-on with dramatic knotted bow and skinny heel, in an exclusive capsule collection featuring a crystal feather art-nouveau-inspired brooch, available only in the Middle East.
The collection, created exclusively for Level Shoes in Dubai, will be available this week in-store and online at levelshoes.com. The designer worked with the department store to develop the style in two colors: terra-cotta and cerulean blue. Level Shoes launched the satin mule upon the style’s debut in 2015. The design sold strongly, according to head buyer Alberto Oliveros. “We launched the bow mules in the first season and ever since it has been one of our key styles,” he said. “It was a natural progression for us to create an exclusive collection with Alessandro for the women of the region. The two colors were specially formulated for our guests — the warm terra-cotta is the perfect neutral while the blue offers a regal touch.”
“I’m looking forward to jumping into the creative process and exploring fashion through a different lens,” said actor Michael B. Jordan exclusively to WWD about becoming the first face of @coach ‘s men’s business. Not only will the actor appear in its global ad campaigns, but he will also create a capsule with designer Stuart Vevers. Tap the link in our bio to learn more. #wwdfashion
