Patricia Blanchet, Paris
In all of Patricia Blanchet’s designs, freedom of expression becomes passion. Patricia Blanchet, together with her family, creates beautiful shoes that express glamour, humour and love. Feet are celebrated, emphasised and magnified. Patricia Blanchet gives footwear meaning and colour: it is the beginning, not the ending, of any outfit.
The family story begins in the 1940s when Patricia’s father arrived in France after an uninterrupted march from the north of Africa. Exhausted, but not overwhelmed, he charged ahead in his boots and founded Rolando di Parigi, a pioneering importer of Italian shoes. In this joyful atmosphere, Patricia Blanchet grew and learnt. Finally, she and her husband began creating shoes for others. Later, with their son and daughter-in-law, they began to dream of their own label and, finally, in 2007 the Patricia Blanchet label was launched. It grew serenely, bringing joy and pleasure to women and soon had a loyal following. In April 2013, Patricia Blanchet opened her first shop near Republic in Paris. L’Ingénue is thrilled to stock Patricia Blanchet's beautiful shoes.
Patricia Blanchett’s shoes are handmade in Spain, in the region of Alicante at a factory owned by another family, this time father and son. All the shoes are beautifully crafted from the finest leathers and suede sourced from Spain and Italy.
