Back­ground “i was raised in a shoe fac­tory,” says Brazil­ian na­tive alexan­dre Bir­man. Born into a fam­ily that has dom­i­nated the South amer­i­can footwear mar­ket since the 1970s, Bir­man de­signed his first shoe at the age of 12 and con­tin­ued to dab­ble in fash­ion il­lus­tra­tions, which ul­ti­mately led him to launch his epony­mous la­bel in 2008.

Brand Sig­na­ture Bir­man’s de­signs use lux­u­ri­ous ma­te­ri­als with a fo­cus on so­phis­ti­ca­tion, el­e­gance and fem­i­nin­ity. The cou­ture brand is renowned for its use of ex­otic skins such as python, crocodile and lizard.

LATEST col­lec­tion The sexy 1970s serve as Bir­man’s in­spi­ra­tion, through the use of pre­cious skins in a rich au­tumn pal­ette fea­tur­ing black, co­gnac and mid­night blue. The col­lec­tion tar­gets the so­phis­ti­cated trav­eller—one who pa­rades through life in an­kle boots, cage san­dals or bal­le­rina flats.
