Brazilian shoe designer, Alexandre Birman, is famed for his glamorous designs on classic lines for the young professional woman about town. His collection for Spring and Summer 2013 is no exception to the rule!

His signature material, python skin, features strongly in the collection. He favours it over all else due to its unique colorations and ease of workability on the details of his designs. There’s a shoe for every occasion, classic nudes, city flatties, sophisticated heels and strappy sandals. He is the darling of the celebrities and his shoes are often seen on the red carpet and at black tie events of the rich and famous.

The son of a leading shoe manufacturer in Brazil, he has been designing since the age of 15 and divides his time between the family company and his own brand. Based in Sao Paolo and New York, where he has an ever growing following in the 5th Avenue stores. They term his shoes as having ‘a strong fashion aesthetic through sexy feminine and modern silhouettes.’
