Fiona Kotur Expanding Into Footwear
The accessories label Kotur is adding shoes to its offerings. Though it’s known mainly for its clutches, Kotur will debut its first shoe collection during NY Fashion Week and will have “travel chic” vibe to it. “I’ve always wanted to do shoes. It’s about having the freedom to be personal,” said designer Fiona Kotur. The shoes will compliment the bags and jewelry in the collections, which are produced in Italy and Shanghai. The pumps, sandals, and flats are made from materials like snakeskin, suede, and silk satin and will retail from $350 to $850. You can buy Kotur’s accessories at Net-a-porter, Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom, and koturltd.com.
