Leora Aminoff of Madison L loves her high heels so much that she created an earring collection inspired by their spiky slim profiles. Enter Stiletto—a line of 65 different earring SKUs, including different colors—in 14k gold with diamonds, mother-of-pearl, black onyx, reconstituted turquoise, and more.
“I’m obsessed with all of my shoes!” gushes the New York City–based Aminoff, who is as stiletto tall as the designs she creates. “My strappy Manolo Blahniks are among my favorites! In fact, style no. DE11179 are inspired by my favorite shoes—a pair of black Manolos.” (See image below.)
Aminoff debuted Stiletto last fall and has built up offerings—and accounts—since then. To date, 50 doors carry Stiletto, and retail prices start at $702 per pair. A set buy-in doesn’t exist, but Aminoff suggests 3 to 5 pairs in order to give the collection proper representation. “It makes for a better presentation, and any collection sells better with a story,” she says.
