Alexandre Birman

Alexandre Birman was born into a world of shoes. His father was the owner of the Arezzo group which is an institution of Brazilian shoe production. Alexandre Birman designed his first pair at the age of 15. This early start in the business meant that by the time he founded his own brand at the age of only 32, he had already earned his stripes as a seasoned designer. The luxurious footwear in the Alexandre Birman brand mixes sexy styles at the height of fashion with traditions of shoemaking that date back to the 1880’s. The leathers are for the most part imported from Italy and the exotic skins, such as python skin, come from Pilipino farms which are subject to the most rigorous conventions concerning protected species. The braids and needlework are handcrafted, and the label already has its own trademark: precious lining combined with beige goat’s leather. The very Brazilian designer’s hand of Alexandre Birman is mixed with an international style culture- after having learned how to make shoes at the tender age of 12, the designer studied in Boston and in Florence. This international character, this science of luxury, and this South American personality that’s so seductive, have won over the press from Vogue to Harper’s Bazaar and Elle, as well as all the biggest stars in Hollywood: Kate Hudson, Demi Moore, Courtney Cox, Jessica Alba, Zoe Saldana, and Katy Perry have all been seen in Alexandre Birman. The brand was even spoken about in Gossip Girl by Leighton Meester! Now it’s your turn to discover these illustrious ranks...
