Drawing inspiration from buildings and architecture, Daissy Ornelas’ limited edition collection of luxury women’s shoes merges its founder’s love for structured lines with the quality of the Italian footwear manufacturing tradition.

With its modern glamour, vibrant color combinations, smooth lines, and precious materials, Daissy Ornelas’ designs evoke the spirit of the Art Deco movement, with a particular reference to its architectural style — short for Arts Décoratifs, this artistic movement originated in early 20th century France and was characterized by its rich, contrasting colors, bold geometry, and sleek opulence.

The artisanal nature of the manufacturing process not only guarantees increased softness, flexibility, and transpiration but also ensures each piece of footwear to be exclusive and original.

Handcrafted in Northern Italy by a factory with over 60 years of experience within the field of Italian luxury footwear, Daissy Ornelas’ shoes are made exclusively out of premium Italian leather, carefully selected and meticulously stitched by the hands of skilled artisans.

Raised in Los Angeles, California, Daissy Ornelas discovered her love for Architecture at a young age, when she accompanied her mother on regular weekend shopping trips to Downtown LA.. Her passion for architecture grew when she traveled around Europe, falling in love with its landscapes and architectural masterpieces.
