New Fall Arrivals from Balmain!

Now in stock at nida, select pieces from the FW 2011/12 Balmain collection!

Maloles Shoes

Maloles Antignac launched her shoe line in 2004 with the introduction of her signature ballet flats. The "Georges," a slip-on, and the "Zoe," the pleated flat, are now the signature styles of the brand. She turned over a ballerina shoe and used the pleated effect around the sole as a technical and decorative approach to construction, finishing with a sophisticated bow.

Maloles signature "Zoe" ballet flat in pleated glitter cloth on leather with a grosgrain ribbon

Each piece is made using an artisan shoemaking practice called "Sacchetto," a form of construction that offers flexibility and comfort. The shoe envelops the foot like a glove giving more agility to the shoes which can move in every direction to fit the flexibility of the foot.

The Sacchetto styles are hand-stitched on both the interior and exterior for utmost durability. The gold stitched sole gives a decorative and elegant touch to the shoes .

"Georges" ballet flat in pebbled metallic leather
"Dorothy" oxford in pebbled metallic leather

Maloles Fall-Winter 2011-12 collection, titled "Masculine Elegance," combines (per the name) menswear inspired styling and details with feminine shapes.

"Cani" leather ankle boots with a front tassel, in black and chocolate

"Bariella Stud" patent glitter black and lambskin black ballerina with a bow and studs

Now at nida: Jamin Puech handbags

Benoit Jamin and Isabelle Puech met working at a prestigious design house and began their company in 1990, working from their small flat. Two years later they were carried in Bergdorf Goodman in NY, Corso Como in Milan and Joyce in Hong Kong. 

In 1993, their collections graced the runway presentations of Chanel, Chloé, Lagerfeld, and Balmain. In 1996, Jamin Puech opened its first flagship store in Paris and has since opened more boutiques in Paris, London, Tokyo, Osaka, Milan, Barcelona and recently opened a larger store in New York’s Soho (Prince Street). In addition to their own boutiques, Jamin Puech is distributed all over the world, across about 300 select stores.

nida is very excited to now carry Jamin Puech bags! The collection features mixed materials, handcrafted detailing, and an aesthetic that is singular and unique, something poetic and different amidst designer trend bags.
