Connoisseurs from all around the world, eager to get their hands on a pair of premium bespoke shoes, flock to Florence to the Via dei Michelozzi close to Piazza Santo Spirito. The inconspicuous entrance to the little shop lies between an osteria and a street café, and the unobservant passer-by could easily miss it. But the humble exterior houses a spectacular workshop, in which Roberto Ugolini has manufactured his meanwhile world-famous shoes for more than 20 years.
Kitten heels are the little sisters of high heels, because they measure five centimetres at most. In the 1950s, they famously became popular through Audrey Hepburn, but later – when higher heels grew more fashionable – they were thought somewhat conservative. Recently, the curvy heel celebrated a big comeback and can once again be seen at shows, on Instagram and in magazines. The advantages: way more comfortable than high heels, suitable for everyday wear and the office, feminine and exceedingly elegant and can be combined with a huge range of looks. Many women appreciate this versatility.
“Kitten Heel” by Roberto Ugolini was inspired by precisely these virtues. Fruity notes reminiscent of apricots form the prelude of the composition, accompanied by tropical ylang- ylang and a hint of rose typical of geraniums. Balsamic sweet, but also slightly woody tones flatter the heart of the scent, which features hints of patchouli, precious ambergris and creamy sandalwood. A touch of vanilla further elevates this feminine scent, whose delicately spicy character is underlined by sweet nuances of Tonka bean. Musk gently envelopes the creation, giving it a harmonious finish. Like the kitten heels themselves, the eponymous perfume is an elegant, expressive companion for women, who like to reinterpret classic sophistication with modern pizzazz...
The compositions and bottles also artfully reflect the mood of the Renaissance city of Florence, where history is omnipresent and ever palpable. Thus, the leather labels have been handcrafted and been manually placed on the bottles and the caps consist of staghorn, either rough or polished. Roberto Ugolini’s perfumes are thus timeless, unique and tasteful and emphasise the personal identity of the wearer and his or her desire to be different. At the highest standard.
