Venice Rene Caovilla Rene Caovilla,Fashion & Accessories
Shoes for over eight decades.
Founded in Venice in 1934 by Edoardo Caovilla, the brand is regarded as having set the benchmark for excellence in the jewelled footwear sector. By combining artisanal skill with innovative techniques and tradition with research, since it was founded Caovilla has paid meticulous attention to both detailing and quality, making them the brand's signature characteristics.
Today, Caovilla is an international brand. Its revenue has quadrupled over the last decade, a fact reflected in its expansion into global markets: exports now account for over 90% of the company’s turnover, split equally between North America, the Middle East and Asia.
The retail side of the business spans 13 boutiques in the world’s most prominent cities and further growth is scheduled over the next three years. Caovilla also has well-established wholesale interests; new partnerships are planned between China, South-East Asia, the Middle East and the USA with a range that will expand to include other sectors, such as bags and jewellery.
Certain René Caovilla models have evolved into internationally-renowned style icons in their own right, not least the Snake sandal, created by René Fernando in 1968, which has become a genuine cult item and a symbol of the brand.
