What you are about to read is a free chat with Beatrice Baldan, the rebellious soul that combined with the mastery of designer Fabio Panzeri gave life to Revolver Requeen Venexia.
A somewhat counter-trend interview that alternates reflections and time travel.
“My story is not romantic, it is true.”
This how Beatrice begins to talk about herself.
A story that mixes the passion for horse riding with music and in particularly for shoes. Or better the stiletto shoes.
“When I was a little girl, I have always wanted to be independent and take decisions by my own, holding the reins of my destiny in my hands and the heels anchored to the stirrups to help me stay on the saddle in every situation, as happens when riding.”
On one side the love for horses, symbol of freedom.
On the other side the passion for heeled shoes, the very ones her mother jealously hid in a locked room.
"My rebellious soul craved that forbidden place that I dreamt of opening and discovering."
To all this is added a musical background that ranged from punk to glam rock.
"One day, almost by mistake, I saw a video of the New York Dolls,"personality crisis": there were men, dressed as women with heels.
I immediately thought it was brilliant!"
Artistic arrogance, contrasts and sensuality.
Fascinated by everything that was bucking the trend and making noise, Beatrice observed every detail, especially the shoes, from which she could understand people. To read the soul of the wearer.
Revolver Requeen Venexia was born with this spirit: shoes for those who dare and are not afraid to show their essence in every situation.
“We are a new-born brand and for this reason we are full of adrenaline every day.
The main challenge is to enhance our know-how, despite the fact that the market is increasingly dominated by a sporty style.
We persevere and choose to do what we believe in and what we do best: create elegant footwear.
On all fronts we go against the trend. Approach, style, philosophy. However, the common thread is rebellion.
All this gives us the right energy to continue our journey against the tide."
“Without a doubt when Fabio presented the designs of the first collection.
That instant when I saw the idea of the brand to take shape through the hands of the designer, which until then was only in my head.
An indescribable experience that continues to excite me."
“RRV is an unconventional brand.
We started from online, but we firmly believe in the off-line’s power.
We address precisely that niche that desires human contact. That one who wants to physically approach the product, touch it to appreciate it to the fullest.
Consequently, we follow the wave of digitalization, but always with our spirit. We have in fact created a virtual showroom that allows not only to explore the entire collection, but also to take a real journey inside our imaginary Hotel."
One last question…
“I cannot tell you much.
I say only: Rock baby, Rock!”
