Designer Notes: Electroplate Heel

Designer's Notes - September 20

Our design-driven Spring Summer 20 collection takes cues through an international lens whilst curating original pieces, designed by New Zealand women, for all women. We spoke to our in-house team about the iconic yet subtle, gold electroplate heel detailing.


“Continuing our love affair with statement heels, we've designed subtle gold plate features on some of our signature styles. Through detailed design and 2 part moulding, the electroplate heel is created using a thin layer of metallic which is applied with an electric current to create a premium eye-catching finish. This level of detail requires a highly trained shoemakers skillset, unique to the Mi Piaci design team we are proud to have in our Auckland studio.”
