Cinq à Sept to Launch First Footwear Collection in Partnership With Arezzo & Co.

More from Footwear News

Cinq à Sept is expanding categories. Later this year, the New York-based ready-to-wear brand will launch its first footwear collection.

The line is being developed and produced by Brazilian powerhouse Arezzo & Co. — known for its own labels Alexandre Birman and Schutz — in partnership with Jaya Apparel Group.

For the brand’s debut resort ’25 season, co-founder and CEO Jane Siskin said the line features 30 styles, including flats and heeled sandals, pumps and boots, which complement Cinq à Sept’s ready-to-wear.

“For this first collection, we wanted to play around with all different aspects our customer’s lifestyle. We have casual, raffia, espadrille-type shoes and a denim collection. Then we also have amazing bridal shoes, wear-to-work shoes and guest-of shoes,” she told FN. “We have an incredible mixed media group that’s python, metallic and leather. And I feel like that also speaks to the kind of things we do in the collection. We always embrace some kind of texture or embellishment and interesting twists on patterns.”

While the company is only eight years old, Siskin said launching a footwear category was a long-time coming and an organic move for the brand.

“When we started this brand, we set out to really think about a complete lifestyle, and a very specific aesthetic — something that is on trend, but not trendy, and always has a little bit of a sexy edge. There was really nothing like it in footwear. So, not only did I always want to do [shoes], but it really felt right for the brand to have,” she added.

Cinq à Sept’s footwear collection, which will retail from $295 to $495, will be designed in New York and made in Brazil.

The line will launch later this year in-store and online through Cinq à Sept’s own channels and select retailers. The brand aims to sell the category in top wholesale doors that currently carry its core ready-to-wear line, such as Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdales and more.
