The Maison Caovilla was founded by Edoardo Caovilla in 1934 in Fiesso d’Artico, near Venice, the heartland of the handmade footwear tradition since the Republic of Venice. In the early Sixties, his son René Fernando Caovilla took over the company reins. By combining his father’s meticulous craftmanship with innovation, he turned Rene Caovilla into an international success with 14 directly operated stores and 115 multi-brand venues. From sketch to sparkling shoe, the entire production cycle is still carried out in-house. Excellence remains the byword at Caovilla, constantly elevating the house’s sense of glamour, dreaminess and red-carpet desirability.
