Aquazzura’s Edgardo Osorio is heading into the New Year on quite a high. The creative director and founder launched multiple collaborations this year, including his second with model Claudia Schiffer, one with designer Racil Chalhoub and a one-of-akind capsule collection for Net-a-Porter crafted with five young female jewelry designers. His brand also made headlines on a global scale, as Meghan Markle has chosen Aquazzura as one of her go-to brands since joining the British royal family. Additionally this year, the designer continued to expand his business by opening his second boutique in New York. As for 2019, Osorio said he plans to focus his efforts on the Asian market and on broadening his design creations. “[We are] expanding our sneakers and more of the lifestyle part of the business, but still within the Aquazzura DNA,” he said, adding that more capsule collections in other product categories are on the horizon, along with collaborations. Here, Osorio gives a taste of some of the things that keep him inspired.
