Metralla Rosa con Carla Tofano

with Natacha Marro

Shoe Designer

 

Jumping feet first into a world of fantasy is precisely what the fabulous shoe designer, Natacha Marro, does with her creations. Every single one of her designs is conceived with absolute creative freedom and made entirely by hand, whilst still managing to put the needs of her clients above all else.

Born in Nice, on the French Riviera, Natacha moved first to Paris, and then to London – the city in which her irreverent and bombastic creative spirit was not only received by a market thirsty for her innovation and enthusiastic experimentation, but which also provided her with the necessary inspiration to strengthen the independent and visionary brand she dreamed of building.

Natacha Marro is an unstoppable artist, brimming not only with fantastic ideas, but with a passion for indulging the ambitious dreams of her enviable list of clients. With her expertise at creating sculptural pieces of art for the feet, it is no surprise that the list of devoted international superstars who adore her designs includes Lady Gaga, Beyoncé, Grace Jones, Gwen Stefani, Grayson Perry, Rihanna, Björk, Scarlett Johansson, Dita Von Teese, Angelina Jolie, Madonna and David Bowie.

In this interview Natacha tells us about the time she hand made the boots that Ewan McGregor and Liam Neeson would go on to wear in Star Wars, how her cult brand manages to survive in a market where customised creations seem increasingly expendable and what it was like to participate in the highly successful Pleasure and Pain exhibition at the V&A museum in 2015. She also talks about the beautiful friendships she maintains with style icons such as Kat Von D and Daphne Guinness, how creating unique pieces of footwear for Lady Gaga affected her international status, what it has been like to incorporate vegan materials into her artisan production process and the unexpected surprises related to mass production that await the future of her brand, Natacha Marro.

If you find the glorious communion between fashion, art and life exciting, then this pleasant conversation will bring you immense happiness.

And now, enjoy the interview!

Designer di scarpe

 

Buttarsi a piedi pari nel mondo della fantasia è quello che la straordinaria disegnatrice di calzature Natacha Marro suggerisce attraverso i suoi modelli. Le sue creazioni sono tutte concepite partendo dalla più assoluta libertà creativa e ognuna di esse è realizzata completamente a mano, anche tenendo sempre presente le esigenze dei clienti.

Nata a Nizza, sulla riviera francese, Natacha prima si trasferì a Parigi, e poi a Londra, la città in cui il suo spirito creativo, irriverente e magniloquente, non ha soltanto trovato la disponibilità di un mercato assetato di innovazioni e di sperimentazioni entusiaste, ma anche l’ispirazione necessaria per potenziare un marchio indipendente e visionario come quello che lei sognava di consolidare.

Natacha Marro è un’artista inarrestabile, traboccante di idee fantastiche, e con la passione di soddisfare i desideri esigenti della sua invidiabile clientela. Per la sua abilità nel creare scultoree opere d’arte sui tacchi, nessuno si meraviglia se, nell’elenco super internazionale di famosissime stelle, fan adoranti dei suoi modelli, figurino Lady Gaga, Beyoncé, Grace Jones, Gwen Stefani, Grayson Perry, Rihanna, Björk, Scarlett Johansson, Dita Von Teese, Angelina Jolie, Madonna e David Bowie.

In questa intervista, Natacha ci racconta come e quando ha ricevuto l’incarico di realizzare con le sue mani gli stivali che esibivano Ewan McGregor e Liam Neeson in Star Wars, come sopravvive un marchio di culto in un mercato dove le creazioni su misura sembrano sempre più sacrificabili, e cosa abbia significato partecipare alla famosa mostra del museo V&A, Pleasure and Pain, nel 2015. Ci racconta anche del bel rapporto di amicizia che la lega a icone dello stile come Kat Von D e Daphne Guinness, di come creare modelli unici di calzature per Lady Gaga abbia influenzato la sua fama internazionale, di come sia stato inserire materiale vegano nel suo processo di produzione artigianale, e di quante sorprese inaspettate, legate alla produzione di massa, il futuro riservi al suo marchio, Natacha Marro.

Se l’unione ben riuscita tra moda, arte e vita vi sembra interessante, questa piacevole conversazione vi renderà immensamente felici.

E adesso, godetevi l’intervista!

Poner ambos pies en el mundo de lo fantástico es lo que la fabulosa diseñadora de calzado Natacha Marro propone con sus diseños. Sus creaciones son todas concebidas desde la más absoluta libertad creativa y todas son elaboradas completamente a mano, y con las necesidades de sus clientes siempre en mente.

Nacida en Niza, en la rivera francesa, Natacha primero se mudó a Paris, y luego a Londres, la ciudad en la que su espíritu creador, irreverente y grandilocuente, no solo encontró la receptividad de un mercado sediento de innovación y entusiasta experimentación, sino también la inspiración necesaria para fortalecer, una marca independiente y visionaria como la que soñaba consolidar.

Natacha Marro es una artista imparable, rebosante de ideas fantásticas, y apasionada por complacer las ambiciosas aspiraciones de su envidiable clientela.

En esta entrevista Natacha nos cuenta cómo y cuando fue comisionada para realizar con sus propias manos las botas que lucirían Ewan McGregor y Liam Neeson en Star Wars, como sobrevive una marca de culto en un mercado en el que las creaciones a la medida parecen cada vez más prescindibles, y como fué participar en la famosa exposición del museo V&A, Pleasure and Pain en 2015. Nos cuenta también acerca de la hermosa relación de amistad que mantiene con iconos de estilo como Kat Von D y Daphne Guinness, como crear piezas únicas de calzado para Lady Gaga ha afectado su proyección internacional, como ha sido incorporar materiales veganos a su proceso de elaboración artesanal, y que inesperadas sorpresas relacionadas con la producción masiva le deparan al futuro de su marca, Natacha Marro.
