Amo Store is a soon to launch Melbourne based men and women’s shoe boutique that will retail a curated collection of familiar brands and exclusive independent labels as well as clothing and accessories ranges to match. The store recently commissioned Studio SP-GD to develop a ‘simplistic’ brand identity that would effortlessly extend across a variety of formats.
“Candela is a women’s footwear and ready-to-wear line created by Gabriela Perezutti. Influenced in part by her childhood spent on a horse ranch in Uruguay, the collection embodies Gabi’s soft femininity, adventurous gaucho spirit and South American roots. We [RoAndCo] conveyed this spirit throughout all iterations of the company’s branding—from business cards and lookbooks to art direction and campaigns—through elements like a swooping gold logo and lush leather packaging.”
Anagrama have just completed the branding of Romero+McPaul, an English-style velvet slipper manufacturer and retailer established by Italian shoemaker Mr. Migliori that produces bespoke lines handcrafted by artisans with a ‘trendy twist’.
“For this project, our inspiration was heavily drawn from traditional English types and coat of arms mixed with the over-the-top luxuriousness of The Hamptons and it’s sailing and yacht club maritime lifestyle. With the intention to speak of the product’s duality, we created a storyline based on two characters, Romero and McPaul. Romero is the mischievous heartthrob, representing the product’s playfulness, warmth and latino heritage, while mMcPaul is the serious, traditional man, embodying the product’s ancestral and upscale British nature. We gave the brand the rosemary (or “romero” in Spanish) not only as a wink to its name but also as a reference to this herb’s curious nature, as it only grows close to the sea.” – Anagrama
