About DIVA ! (see below for list of versions and click on photo for full information)
DIVA ! (the latin word for a female deity) is the most sophisticated and glamorous style of the whole collection. Because of the way true slippers are made (turnshoe construction) there have never been complicated patterns and styles using luxurious materials and accessories. We challenge these limits to bridge the gap between the world of slippers and that of shoes. The pattern of DIVA ! is in tune with the best of Art Nouveau design and it is an intricate game of layers and fine trim details which highlight the main lines. The careful selection of leathers and materials displays surprising contrasts in colours, in textures and in glossy versus matt.
Made on our LOMBARD last cleverly designed to have a distictive pointy toe while maintaining the absolute comfort you expect from slippers. The name Lombard plays on a double meaning: it is Lombard because it was designed and made in Milano which is in Lombardy county and it is Lombard as a tribute to the all time glamour diva Carole Lombard.
