A di GAETA blossoms from real women. We blend style and functionality to voice modern femininity. Our ‘tailor-made footwear’ is crafted to be versatile, lasting yet innovative with a timeless soul. In other words, we entwine desire and need. With A di GAETA, a new idea of ‘shoe tailoring’ is born, designed to meet the lifestyle and needs of the modern woman. A di GAETA is a Milanese atelier, whose aspiration is to create a unique place where beauty and functionality merge, to create extremely versatile products. A design that is constantly renewed, giving voice to a new creativity, which does not betray the identity of the woman but rather helps her to find the right balance between desire and need. “Real luxury today means being able to tailor products to our lives. At the heart of our company lies the making of innovative pieces that can be quintessential and adaptable, in a more resource-efficient and economically viable way.” Our aesthetic is not trend-driven but rather focused on design innovation and quality. Thanks to structural variables (Add-On Accessories), our products can seamlessly transform into something completely different within seconds. Our hand-crafted designs are made to last. Each piece can be assembled and worn in various ways, celebrating a woman’s true identity and adapting to the most diverse occasions. “We don’t simply design beautiful objects. We concentrate on how you relate to footwear by envisioning solutions that respond to everyday needs.”
Angelica di Gaeta, founder and designer of the A di GAETA brand, combined her studies in Product Design at Central Saint Martins and her 13 years of experience in the luxury footwear industry to develop her concept of ‘tailoring footwear’: modular designs that meet the lifestyle and needs of the modern woman. The first collection was launched at the end of the year 2020, at the height of the pandemic, in order to send a message of rebirth and positivity after a period that made people question many certainties and see life from a different perspective. Angelica’s aim is to be able to create products that are representative of the era in which we live, responding to the true desires and needs of today’s women.
