PALERMO PAIRS UP: On the heels of her recent nuptials to Johannes Huebl, Olivia Palermo is coupling up with another man: Edgardo Osorio of Aquazzura.

Palermo has collaborated on a capsule collection of six shoe styles for the Florence-based luxury footwear label. Called Aquazzura x Olivia Palermo, the collection launches for fall in September with 12 global retailers, including Lane Crawford, Saks Fifth Avenue, Tsum and Holt Renfrew. Net-a-porter has the online exclusive.

“Olivia basically has been our unofficial ambassador,” said Osorio. “She’s always wearing the shoes. We’re friends and we were talking more than a year ago about a small capsule that would be Olivia’s eye and aesthetic but with the Aquazzura style.”

There are over-the-knee boots, bejeweled sandals inspired by a vintage necklace Palermo owns, gladiators, suede and snake pumps and a suede bootie.

Prices range from $600 to $1,625, which are meant to be relatively reasonable. “Everything is so expensive these days and you still want to have things that you can find and have quality and the design aesthetic and be happy,” said Palermo.
