Presented on the sidelines of the Autumn-Winter 2019 Fashion Week, Nodaleto has made quite a début on the fashion scene. For their first collection, Julia Toledano and Olivier Leone came up with four pairs of shoes ranging from ballet flats to ankle boots, cut in black, ecru and orange patent leather (a tribute to the designer's Spanish and Moroccan roots). Naive, exuberant and unusual but also incredibly comfortable thanks to their thick heels, this "Very First Drop" (as the brand refers to it) is sure to impress footwear fans everywhere, from budding shoe lovers to the most fashionable influencers.
Launched in Autumn 2019, the Nodaleto shoe brand is the brainchild of Julia Toledano and Olivier Leone. The brand debuted its lines at Paris fashion week and quickly caused a stir, with the promise of a bright future ahead. Named after a mash-up of the designer's name, the fashion house takes inspiration from the 70s and Venice Beach, and makes all its pieces in Venice for optimum quality guaranteed.
After studying law, Julia Toledano turned her attention to fashion during a master's degree in journalism that led her to work at ELLE and CR Fashion Book. With a dream of one day launching a footwear brand, she landed in London where she attended the London College of Fashion. On her return, she joined Olivier Leone to found the Nodaleto label, a back-to-front spelling of her own last name.
