Paris Texas is one of the buzziest new names in the footwear world and worth adding to your follow list, because of its bold, feel-good aesthetic that’s all about animal prints, metallic leathers – and loads of fuchsia.
The brand, which was started by Italian sisters Annamaria and Margherita Brivio, found a sweet-spot for directional, well-made and competitively priced boots. Its flair for a bold statement – you’ll find anything from zebra-print cowboy boots, to feather-embellished mules and blue croc thigh-high boots – helped the brand quickly grow a legion of famous fans, including industry heavyweights like Eva Chen, Tiffany Hsu and Chiara Ferragni, who were some of the earliest adopters.
Its Instagram account charts this upward journey with shots of the myriads of celebrities and influencers who have joined the Paris Texas community – most recently Khloe Kardashian was trying on a pair of faux-croc pink knee boots – close-ups of the latest styles and plenty of ideas on how to style them, be it by layering different animal prints together or clashing its signature python-effect boot with bright florals. The brand’s Instagram Stories are also your best source for keeping up with all the latest news like exclusive launches or pop-ups by the label, that happen across the globe from Le Bon Marché in Paris to Selfridges in London.
