A di GAETA - Unconventional Atelier

A di GAETA is a Milanese atelier where beauty and functionality come together to create extremely versatile footwear products. A design that is constantly renewed, giving voice to a new creativity, helping women find the right balance between desire and need.

Angelica di Gaeta, Founder and Creative Director of the brand, merged her studies in product design at Central Saint Martins and her 13 year experience in luxury footwear to develop her own concept of 'shoe tailoring’ - customizable designs that meet the lifestyle and needs of the modern woman.

The first collection was launched at the end of the year 2020, to send a message of rebirth and positivity after a year that made everyone question many certainties and see life from a different perspective.
