DAVID BEAUCIEL designs for an active, feminine woman.
Made in Italy, the shoes combine comfort and seduction. They dress up the foot beautifully, creating delicate sculptures.
For David Tourniaire-Beauciel, femininity does not reside in the height of the heel, but in the elegant and refined form of the shoe, a composition of slim and slender shapes made of fine and sophisticated fabrics.
The Spring-Summer 2017 collection draws inspiration from the subtle amusements of women, from games that can be alternately harmless, mysterious or dangerous. The common theme is femininity in all its forms.
“I create shoes for the look they give, for active women who really walk. I put myself at their service”.
The art of shoemaking is part of David’s personal history. Born in Romans-sur-Isère, the French capital city of shoe industry, he developed a taste for leathercrafts in his early childhood.
He launched his own brand DAVID BEAUCIEL in 2015 but has designed shoes for the most prestigious luxury brands for 25 years.
David started when he was only 24 as Jean Paul Gaultier’s assistant for accessory design. Then, he worked successively with Phoebe Philo and Stella McCartney at Chloé, Martin Margiela for his eponymous brand, Riccardo Tisci at Givenchy. In addition to his incredible experience, he now dedicates his savoir-faire and vision of femininity to his own brand.
David Tourniaire-Beauciel was recently nominated as the Creative Director of the French maison Robert Clergerie. Among his numerous collaborations, he works regularly with Demna Gvasalia to design the Balenciaga men and women’s shoe collections.
