A Closer Look At Our Collaboration With Gia Couture

A longtime admirer of Gia Couture, Silvia Tcherassi was a fan and customer before embarking on a collaboration with the Italian footwear firm. Known for its quality and attention to detail, the playful, yet glamorous aesthetic of the Florentine brand made them the perfect complement to Silvia’s feminine designs. We sat down with shoe designer, Barbara Borghini, and talked about her career path, style and of course, the collaboration which is exclusive to Silvia Tcherassi stores and website.

"The collaboration was born from a mutual appreciation of each other's work. Both Silvia and I love to create fun and feminine styles that are easy to wear at the same time."
- Barbara Borghini, CEO.

Define your brand in three words?
Feminine, playful, sexy.


How do you incorporate Italian craftmanship and tradition into your shoes?
We proudly use the best artisans in the Tuscan region to continue the tradition of Made in Italy. Our materials and leathers are also sourced from Italian companies to ensure top quality.


Do you think all accessories in your look need to match?
There are no rules in fashion. So I believe the person can play with any style, any color, and any accessory.


How do you define your own style?
I try to represent my brand, so I also think my style is feminine, playful, and at times it can be sexy. I like to try new things and experiment with different styles too.


How was this collaboration born?
The collaboration was born from a mutual appreciation of each other’s work. Both Silvia and I love to create fun and feminine styles that are easy to wear at the same time. It’s a match made in fashion heaven.


What do you have in common with Silvia Tcherassi?
She is Colombian and I am Italian. Both of our cultures are known for being strong and also vibrant. We like to incorporate these things into the way we design and dress women. Silvia and I also love playing with color and material so it makes working with her a dream.


Which is your favorite piece of the collaboration?
This is a hard question! I feel like all the pieces represent a different side of me. But I absolutely love the lace-up sandals. They are so fun to wear and just look amazing on your feet.


Are you planning another collaboration with Silvia in the future?
Absolutely! This is a dream collaboration and I definitely want to continue this partnership in the future.
