LHORADON SUCCESS STORY
Thoughtfully sculptured designs crafted with the finest Italian craftsmanship techniques,
LHORADON was born to relive childhood lost opportunities and be known for it with an artful take on modern footwear.
“The brand was envisaged to carry the very best craftsmanship of high end yet accessible products so it was challenging finding a reputable company to manufacture such in Italy.”- Ruth Freeman, USA
From product development to manufacturing with ISM, LHORADON shoes have become a sensation of its kind with two distinguished designs that are art pieces on their own, crafted in top quality leather, hand-painted heels and jewellery embellishments.
Ruth provided ISM with comprehensive moodboards and high level sketches. ISM then interpreted her concepts and came up with professional sketches, including the iconic “Lady Julia” and “Ripple Apple” designs.
Prototyping & Sampling
ISM worked on the prototype and made samples for the two styles respectively, particularly focusing on the development of the sculptural heel and jewellery embellishments.
Based on Ruthʼs ideas, ISM crafted a custom teal colour top flap shoe box with gold satin lace ribbon and logo print.
With the complexity of the heels constructions, ISM worked closely with the artisans and hardware supplier to ensure these unique features were impeccably made, complete with high quality nappa leather and satin.
While Ripple Apple was made in red smooth nappa leather, and features a heel nestled in a sinuous gold spiral with a gold colour apple embellishment at the front.
Lady Julia Heel
Lady Julia features a custom, hand-painted spiral heel made in yellow nappa leather, satin fringes and jewellery embellishments.
