Mitzi with Maya and Luca

In January 2012, I took a trip to Central America to visit my family. On that journey, I hiked Mayan temples, visited coffee plantations and ate the foods that most comfort me. Memories of my childhood came flooding into my consciousness. When I returned home, I invited the Livie & Luca team to share their family photos and a few sweet moments of their lives. They told stories of family vacations, birthday parties, story time with their parents, bus rides with their grannies and they shared mementos: gramp’s baptism shoes, lovies and love letters. We collected these precious materials, dusted them off, stirred them around in our imagination and designed a deeply personal and meaningful spring/summer 2013 collection. We love the thought that these shoes are inspired by our sweetest moments and mementos and that our history will become a part of yours, as you and your children wear these shoes and create new memories. This process also reminds us to treasure today’s moments, right now -the carpools, piano lessons and breakfasts together. We invite you to do the same!

Inspired by our most beloved shoes, we’ve created some memorable costumes that are as simple to make as […]
