René Fernando (born in 1938) made its foothold in the luxury shoes industry with his unique style of sophisticated shoes, creating elegant jewelled creations and sensual, ultra precious chaussures.
In 2004 the first mono-brand René Caovilla boutique was opened in Milan, followed by Paris, Rome, Venice, London and the recently inaugurated shop in shop in the Rinascente department store in Milan. Throughout the years boutiques have also been opened in Dubai, Doha, Moscow, Istanbul, Taipei and Beijing.
In 2010 when his son Edoardo Caovilla entered the company signalling the third generation, the brand moved away from a family business to a more dynamic and structured company, ready to conceive unique Made in Italy creations, to let its elegant and international customers dream.
I was filled with excitement to witness some of their shoes as it had been worn by many celebrities. The crowd was reasonably for a weekday.
