With shoes in the leading role,
acting as confidence catalyst and mood engine,
Marskinryyppy offers an experience.
This was the motive that Texan-born designer Nicole Brundage had when she launched the brand for SS15.
Nicole’s career trajectory began with a Stanford degree, followed by fashion training at the Istituto di Marangoni, and working as a clothing designer for designers Giorgio Armani and Zac Posen. It was in her first-time collaboration designing shoes with Manolo Blahnik for Zac Posen that she decided to move to Italy and launch her own eponymous line, Nicole Brundage (debut fw2006) and Acrobats of God (debut SS2010).
Over the course of these years, she simultaneously consulted as a shoe designer for fashion houses such as Ferragamo, Hogan, and Furla. These experiences gained her inherent understanding of seductive and playful elegance that is Marskinryyppy.
Note: Marskin ryyppy (lit. The Marshal’s drink/shot; Swedish: Marskens snaps) is a strong alcoholic drink of Finnish origin, served as a schnapps.
