Launched in Auckland in early 2014, REVIE is an emerging footwear label that is committed to quality material and construction. Founder Katie Revie’s conception of the REVIE label developed while studying Architecture at Victoria University in Wellington.
“I looked at intimate forms of architecture. A house is a form of skin to protect us as footwear is housing and protection from environmental conditions for our feet,” said Revie.
The first collection was entitled ‘Inception’ and inspiration was drawn from Revie’s student years in Wellington where function required flat, durable shoes. This has developed into a unique brand aesthetic, based on function first following the lines of the body to create a strong sculptural aesthetic, resulting in houses for the feet.
REVIE’S customers encompass people who share an affinity for natural looking, good quality, handmade leather shoes.
So far, the focus has been on releasing two collections a year, a Spring/Summer range and an Autumn/Winter range but with the imminent opening of a flagship store in Auckland (78 Ponsonby Road), plans are in the pipeline to introduce a staples range to be released seasonally in new colour variations.
Focus for this fast-growing label is to establish a good physical presence for the brand and growing the brand identity within New Zealand and abroad.
