We all love having fellow shoe girls across our Instagram feeds to share our mutual love for Bottega sandals or Amina Muaddi Begum pumps in every colour of the rainbow – and Chiara Capitani ticks all those boxes. 

The Italian designer and content creator has been a fashion industry fixture for many years now, for her sporty-meets-sexy style, her flair for cinematic images and design credentials. 

Early on in her career she worked on many shoe design projects, including designing the bold, statement shoes in Chiara Ferragni’s namesake line, as well as art directing campaigns for a number of luxury brands, attending fashion weeks and establishing herself amongst the international street style scene. 

She has since gone on to co-found Eera, one of the most successful new names in the fine jewelry space, known for its dramatic ear cuffs and flair for blending diamonds with neons. But her turn to jewelry hasn’t tempered Chiara’s love of shoes, who often shares snaps of her enviable shoe collection next to her vintage-looking travel pictures and Eera jewelry. 

As part of Milan’s creative community she has ties to some of the hottest designers in town, from Amina Muaddi to The Attico’s Giorgia Tordini and Gilda Ambrosio, so you’ll often find her sharing the latest Amina Muaddi crystal sandals or the newest colorway of The Attico’s Devon pumps – alongside a hefty dose of Saint Laurent, Bottega and Versace. What’s not to love?
