"Designed in London, handcrafted in Spain".
Launched in 2010 by designer Laura Villasenin, originally from Galicia and now based in London, this fashion-forward label combines a young woman's very modern commitment to the concerns of her time with all the nostalgia of a childhood rooted in a slightly wild rural landscape. Its handbag and footwear collections offer minimalist designs, structured shapes and exquisite details that are as daring as they are unexpected, like this astonishing heel made from the lids of bottles of mineral water, presented in its AW 2019/20 collection.
"We created Miista to try and play with shapes and materials, while never sacrificing on the quality of our designs, which we wanted to be and affordable and easy to wear" says the designer. Objective achieved! Miista is characterised by an elegant balance between respect for tradition and a fashion-forward feel. Although London is where the studio's small, passionate team develops the designs in its collections, naturally it is in Alicante that the country's best shoemakers, experts in craftsmanship, bring these creations to life, in recycled materials and carefully selected sumptuous Italian leather.
Miista has three stores located in Barcelona, London and Paris.
