The designer, model and photographer tells Make it last about her best shoes.

New York-based Brazilian Mari Giudicelli splits her time between design, photography and modeling. Besides being a muse of the highly appreciated Maryam Nassirzadeh, she’s developing her own line of footwear. She has a penchant for all things minimalistic and often uses vintage references as a starting point to create fresh yet timeless expressions.

Here, Mari shares the story of her Eternal Flame– a thing she’ll treasure forever.

“My only style rule is comfort. I’m all about utilitarianism. And today we are surrounded by fashion that is totally impractical. As a shoemaker I really appreciate shoes that are comfortable, healthy and beautiful. That’s a very hard thing to find. So when I discovered these shoes it made a lot of sense. They are made in Argentina by a man called Martiniano. They are called glove shoes for a reason. They hug your feet and mould to it, so it’s pretty much the most comfortable shoe in the planet. I love them so much I have two colors. And it’s all I wear. Everyday. They are simple, classy and timeless. Eternal love.”
