NEW to the Perth fash­ion scene, Elle et Lui spe­cialises in de­signer Por­tuguese shoes.

Own­ers Sammy and Alda share Euro­pean back­grounds and an ap­pre­ci­a­tion of the drama of fash­ion and de­sign and wanted to in­tro­duce some­thing new and fresh to the Perth fash­ion mar­ket.

“Not many peo­ple are aware of the rep­u­ta­tion of Por­tuguese prod­ucts, their shoes in par­tic­u­lar are the world’s best-kept se­cret,” Alda said.

“Por­tu­gal is num­ber one in shoe man­u­fac­tur­ing tech­nol­ogy and hence some of the big­ger high-end fash­ion houses are now pro­duc­ing their col­lec­tions in Por­tu­gal, names like Prada, Moschino and Bally.”

Elle et Lui’s col­lec­tion of shoes and ac­ces­sories fo­cus on qual­ity, crafts­man­ship, de­sign and unique de­tails. Sammy and Alda base their col­lec­tion choices on the most ver­sa­tile trends com­ing out Europe, en­sur­ing many of the pieces can be dressed up or down and are suit­able for min­i­mal­ist and max­i­mal­ist wardrobe styles.

This means they can cater to a wide clien­tele look­ing for an ev­ery­day pair of shoes or some­thing for a spe­cial oc­ca­sion, en­sur­ing you do not have to com­pro­mise on qual­ity, com­fort or style.

“All of the de­sign­ers we work with pro­duce their shoes with tra­di­tional hand­made meth­ods, which means close at­ten­tion to de­tail is their top pri­or­ity,” Alda said.

Elle et Lui is lo­cated at Shop 2, 4 St Quentin Av­enue, Clare­mont.
