The DAVID BEAUCIEL line imagines an active, feminine woman.
Made in Italy, the shoes combine comfort and seduction. They dress up the foot beautifully, like delicate sculptures.
For David Tourniaire-Beauciel, femininity does not reside in the height of the heel. It’s in the elegant and refined form of the shoe, a composition of thin and slender shapes, expressed in fine and sophisticated fabrics.
The Spring-Summer 2017 collection draws inspiration from the subtle amusements of women: games that are sometimes harmless, sometimes mysterious, sometimes even dangerous. The common thread is femininity in all its forms.
“I create shoes for the gait they can give, for active women who really walk. I put myself at their service”.
Shoemaking mastery and art are part of David’s personal history. Originally from Romans-sur-Isère, the French shoe capital, he acquired an early taste for leather crafts.
He launched his own brand DAVID BEAUCIEL in 2015 but had already been drawing shoes for the most prestigious luxury houses for 25 years.
He started when he was only 24, assisting Jean Paul Gaultier in accessories design, followed by work at Chloé with Phoebe Philo and Stella McCartney. David also worked with Martin Margiela and Riccardo Tisci at Givenchy.
David has a rare craftsmanship and a creative vision of femininity. This experience and imagination are what he brings to his own brand today.
David Tourniaire-Beauciel has recently become the new creative director of the French brand Robert Clergerie. Among his many collaborations, he works regularly with Demna Gvasalia to design the Balenciaga men and women’s shoe collections.
