Braqo’s inspiration behind the collection “…is really about a personal quest for identity juxtaposing masculine details (of a modern men’s brogue) with the feminine silhouette (of a sharp 5 inch stiletto). A fusion of something as classic and timeless as a pointy pump with a touch of the unfamiliar using elements such as ‘the ankle bangle’ and ‘the pearled spear’ as ornate details that refashion existing ideas about where accessories are placed. The collection seeks to cover a myriad of dressers hopefully creating a link between the fresh and the refined with a sophisticated palette of bordeaux, sapphire, moss and cobalt with the more quintessential black and gold.”
