Since its founding in 1950, Rene Caovilla has become world-renowned for its intricately designed, bejeweled shoes that dazzle with precious metals and stones. Beginning in a small town in Veneto, Italy, Edoardo Caovilla's shoe factory turned couture when his son Rene took the reins, experimenting by adding precious materials and stones to his shoes. Since then, Rene has worked with numerous leading haute couture fashion houses, establishing himself as an expert in beautiful and audacious creative footwear. Italian-crafted and richly embellished with Swarovski crystals, stones and rhinestones, Rene Caovilla flat shoes add immeasurable charm to an outfit. The ultimate in Venetian design and craftsmanship, each pair is a timeless investment piece and a wearable work of art.
