The name IMELDA'SECRET was inspired in the epitome of "shoe lover" and uber-collector IMELDA MARCOS, believing that the secret for the compulsive action of collecting lies in the fact that shoes are an object of desire! The physical image of the brand is represented by a feather, reflecting the influences of design: exotic, texture and lightness.
IMELDA’SECRET caters for women who appreciate the functional features of footwear, such as comfort and breathability of the materials, but do not relinquish a sleek design and dare to mix colors and textures. They become loyal to pieces, tending to collect the same model in different colors, looking to affirm their personality through shoes.
The IMELDA'SECRET shoes have classical forms easily perceived as comfortable, resulting in versatile, feminine and flirty shoes with a strong visual syntax.
