Leading women’s footwear brand Naturalizer, a Caleres brand, has joined forces with renowned bridal designer Pnina Tornai to launch an exquisite collection of shoes for weddings and special occasions. The collaboration, which debuted in Spring 2023, aims to provide women with both style and comfort, from the wedding aisle to the dance floor.
The collection, designed by Tornai, features nine unique styles including mules, platform heels, and flats. The color palette ranges from whites and nudes to metallics, black, and the signature Pnina Pink. The materials used are luxurious lace, pristine satin, and fine glitters. Each shoe is adorned with signature details such as voluptuous bows, bold crystal embellishments, and delicate lace. Adding a personal touch, each shoe carries a handwritten message from Tornai on its sole.
Tornai expressed her excitement about the collaboration, stating that the shoes carry a message of love with every step a bride takes towards her future. She praised the Naturalizer team for their professionalism and talent, which helped bring her vision to life. She emphasized the comfort and quality of the shoes, stating that a bride’s smile starts at the tips of her toes.
The collection, priced between $200 and $325, is currently available on Naturalizer.com. From March 26, it will also be available through select retailers including Nordstrom, Kleinfeld Bridal, Dillard’s, Von Maur, and Zappos.
Marissa Rubinetti, executive vice president and chief operating officer of Kleinfeld Bridal, expressed her enthusiasm about the launch of the Pnina Tornai for Naturalizer shoe collection at Kleinfeld Bridal. She described the shoe designs as exquisite and a perfect complement to Pnina gowns.
John Malpiedi, senior vice president and general manager of Naturalizer, highlighted the brand’s growth in the bridal and occasion footwear market over the past two years. He stated that Naturalizer continues to drive size inclusivity in the industry and plans to innovate the wedding/occasion category further by combining timeless designs and world-class comfort with a partner who has made countless brides’ dreams come true.
The collection was proudly debuted at Tornai’s electrifying New York Bridal Fashion Week couture runway show in October 2022. A capsule planned for Fall 2023 is expected to be previewed alongside Tornai’s next bridal collection in April 2023.
