As a preview of the Fall Winter 16-17 women collection, Le Silla presents the amazing creations of STARDUST, a special series of styles made to seduce each one of you with its glitter sparkle.
Le Silla most iconic and fashionable styles, like the pointy pump and the Cage sandal, have infact been revisited and made contemporary thanks to a bolder and more eccentric look. That’s where this collection comes from, with glitter as the real star of these shiny designs.
The handmade manufacture, 100% Made in Italy as per the fashionhouse tradition and policy, is mixed with the refined taste of new creations. The color palette features strong colours such as nikel, gold and black to get a more street and cosmopolitan style harking back to 80’s punk.
We hope that the chamaleon of rock David Bowie, who this collection takes inspiration from, would have appreciated.

The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, known simply as Coachella Festival, is one of the world most important events of music and art held every year around the end of April in the Empire Polo Fields in Indio, California, 200 km far from Los Angeles.
Coachella was born unofficially in 1993, when Eddie Vedder – leader of the American rock band Pearl Jam – decided to participate in a boycott against the Californian company Ticketmaster, which dealt with the sale and distribution of tickets for concerts, plays or events, accused of having the monopoly on the music scene in Southern California. Vedder organized a concert in a polo club in Indio with 25 thousand people.
In 1999 it is counted the official beginning of the festival, which since then has hosted many big names of American music. Since 2001 the event is regularly held every year in April, bringing together the major exponents of rock, indie and electronic music. Among the artists who performed in the first weekend (April 15 – 17), LCD Soundsystem, Kanye West, Ellie Goulding, Snoop Dogg, Sia and Calvin Harris. The most appreciated moments were Rihanna unexpected performance and Guns N ‘Roses reunion, gathered after more than 20 years with singer Axl Rose and guitarist Slash.
Over the years the Coachella Festival has become so much a real fashion event loved by celebrities that the fashion houses have even started to create capsule collections inspired by the Coachella style.
Lots of stars have participated this year, from Sylvester Stallone to Taylor Swift, from Alessandra Ambrosio and all the other Victoria’s Secret Angels to Chiara Ferragni and Kendall Jenner, everyone in a perfect boho-chic style.
Among the must-have shoes to recreate this boho look, even without taking part to the event, Le Silla propose the Squaw series in suede, characterized by a special laser technique and tassels inspired by the Native American world, the Huarache sandal, a mexican-inspired style with weaved manufacture on the heel and the Gladiator, in flats or high-heels, with sinuous front lacing and braid decorations.
The second and last part of the Coachella Festival 2016 will be held this upcoming weekend from 22 to 24 April.POSTED BY Le Silla Staff
March 2016 has seen the brand Le Silla continue the expansion of its retail chain of mono brand stores in the Arabian Peninsula, with the opening of a new boutique in Qatar, specifically in its capital Doha, the first in the city.
The new boutique is located at The Pearl, a man-made articial island in the West Bay of Doha owned by United Development Company (UDC). With its nearly 4 million square metres, the island is intended for residential use, hotels, restaurants, cafés, entertainment, wellness and especially for luxury shopping.
Among the luxury brands on the Croisette, a promenade of about 3.5 km around Porto Arabia, there is Roberto Cavalli, Armani, Hermès, Stella McCartney, Moschino, Salvatore Ferragamo, Hugo Boss, Philipp Plein, Harmont & Blaine, Chloé and many others, not only of the fashion industry.
The name “The Pearl” was chosen because the island is being built on one of Qatar’s previous major pearl diving sites. Qatar was one of the major pearl traders of Asia before the Japanese introduced cheaper and more affordable pearls just before Qatar’s oil boom, which is currently the largest economic resource for the country.
The Pearl Qatar will help then represent Qatar’s rich past in the pearl industry. Once completed The Pearl will resemble infact a string of pearls.
If you are planning a trip to the Arabian Peninsula, the city of Doha and The Pearl-Qatar is then absolutely a must-see, whether you are a luxury shopping lover or not.
