We are obsessed with our new in exclusive edit of the Chatelles slippers. Not only are they hand crafted, Italian leather in the most luxurious colours but they also have a beautiful story behind the brand……
Chatelles began as a love story….
The Creator of Chatelles, Francois fell in love and offered the girl a pair of slippers which he designed with a verse by Victor Hugo, embossed in the inner sole:
“I cannot live far away…..from you any longer.” – “Je ne puis demeurer …..loin de toi plus longtemps.”
It worked she fell in love with the slippers, broke up with him and left with the slippers. Francois survived this blow by launching Chatelles, his own brand of slippers.
We are sorry for Francois, however very happy that we now have Chatelles in our lives! So next time you hammer the pavements of London in your Chatelles, you now know the story behind the quote embossed inside your exquisite slippers.
Take a look at our new Chatelles that our Buyer, Tamara selected exclusively for Austique.
