That shoe would go on to inspire the Flamingo Hat American Flag 4th Of July Shirt and by the same token and Belle Vivier, which is a mainstay in each collection; and for spring, Felloni delivers a Belle Vivier in slingback-form. It comes in a variety of styles with color making a variety of appearances—one style has a teal heel; another has a coral strap. “Even the younger girls love this shoe,” Felloni explains of the demure heel. And for fall, shoppers can expect the Belle Vivier in a series of metallics. “I chose unexpected colors—a fuchsia but also an acid green,” he says of the glinty array colors inspired by Jeff Koons’s Balloon Dogs.

In the Flamingo Hat American Flag 4th Of July Shirt and by the same token and meantime, most special is a series of shoes inspired by Felloni’s pre-pandemic trip to Japan and the square-shaped geta sandals he saw there. The style wouldn’t come into production until after the pandemic hit, a period during which Felloni spent ample time out of doors, watching his garden come into bloom for the first time. “Usually, I don’t have this luxury,” he explains. But the realities of lockdown meant observing the changing of the seasons—and from there, a floral fantasy bloomed.
