Via Spiga returns to its roots bringing manufacturing, attention to detail and fine craftsmanship to the forefront.
We take great pride in the love that goes into the collaborative process of making our footwear. From the sourcing of fine leathers to the building of the construction, over 60 pairs of hands touch each shoe within the process.
Over half of our footwear collection’s manufacturing not only returns to Italy, but to the original factory that helped launch Via Spiga 35 years ago. Decades later, and in the spirit of fine craftsmanship, it is about finding the best manufacturing partners for each design, wherever that is in the world.
Via Della Spiga, Milan
Established in 1985, VIA SPIGA is named after the main street in one of the most famed shopping districts in Milan. At the time, Milan was gaining prominence as a fashion capital in the global market and there was a noticeable shift towards society and career in women's lives. VIA SPIGA captured this moment, appealing to a modern, on-the-go woman, and offered sophisticated Italian craftsmanship at an accessible price point.
Born in Scotland to Portuguese parents, Carla attended The Royal College of Art in London.
There she discovered her love affair of footwear when she began a design project focused on footwear. Her love of craft, innovation and fashion has continued to inspire her to this day, giving every style conceived her full love, care and attention. After a successful career as a footwear designer for a number of influential global brands, she was appointed Creative Director of Via Spiga in 2016. As a mother of two, she’s inspired by women’s journeys and the need to create comfort into beautifully designed shoes. Carla felt aligned with the brand’s core values to develop footwear for fashion-conscious working women.
