Coliac is a fashion label started by Martina Grasselli who was born in Reggio Emilia where she studied Architecture and Interior Design. After obtaining a Masters’ Degree in Fashion and Textile design at NABA and taking a couple of classes at the Duperré Fashion school in Paris Martina decided to move to Milan. Due to the confidence gained by the completion of her studies led Grasselli started work on the accessory designs for popular fashion labels such as Stella McCartney,Jean Paul Gaultier,Christian Louboutin,Breil Milano and Angelo Fingus.
Grasselli’s label started in 2009 as a costume jewelry brand but then in 2013 expanded into footwear. The first silhouette created by Martina was a brogue shoe with jewel details. Martina Grasselli was also selected to participate in the Who Is On Next? competition which helped increase her exposure in the industry. Shoes are created with pins, studs, colorful laces, pearls and decals to add a playful aesthetic to each style.
Now without further adieu here are my favorite styles from the label:
