Do you ever have those moments when you read a passage in a novel, hear a song on the radio, or see an item in a shop window and it sticks with you? It can be days, weeks, or months later, but then your mind revisits the phrase, the melody, the chic blend of vibrant colors – suddenly, the thing that impacted your life so wonderfully comes flooding back to your memory and you go home with one mission in mind: find it and make it a welcome addition in your day-to-day life.
That amazing, inspired feeling perfectly describes our budding relationship with Ed and Will, a Barcelonan brand so lovely that you will be dreaming of their gorgeous designs even when they’re at home in your closet.
Formed in 2013, this hot new brand is the brainchild of brothers Ed and Will, who use the business acumen they garnered in university to forge a path between strict, rigid architecture and elegant femininity. They take inspiration from the organic, using textures and colors found in nature and blending it with the finest materials.
The intensity of iron is reimagined as modern ebony galuchet, the beauty of a dawn takes form in exquisite sunshine yellow platform python – there is no facet of nature they haven’t reinterpreted with stunning results. We are particularly fond of the supple suede woven into a basket weave and the too-gorgeous-to-be-real lavender ostrich leather heeled sandal; though, honestly, every single design is enough to make you start planning your springtime outfits in the middle of winter. The attention the duo plays to every detail is magnificent and the balance they strike between fashion-forward and classically chic means that you’ll be able to wear these heels for years to come and they’ll never fail to turn heads in your wake.
The stylish, unique aesthetic and the sheer sophistication of Spanish craftsmanship is a combination that is hard to find in an up-and-coming brand, but Ed and Will has the potential and the je ne sais quoi to break into an international market before you can fasten the clasp on their deep-red Visik python heels. Sexy, sleek, and at the forefront of trends, we can’t wait to see where Ed and Will takes us on their path to success.
