Poppy D for Aquazzura

Poppy Delevingne is teaming up with Aquazzura.

The British model and socialite is turning designer for the Florence-based footwear brand, with an eight-piece collection launching in December.

The ideas for the Aquazzura x Poppy Delevingne shoes have come from Poppy's world travels, with the blonde style star working closely with the label's co-founder and creative director Edgardo Osorio.

"Each time a new collection is released, I become more attached to the Aquazzura aesthetic. I love wearing [Edgardo’s] shoes, they always have a sense of humour to them," Poppy gushed to WWD.

Edgardo was just as complimentary about his new design partner, praising her flawless style.

"I’ve always admired Poppy and I love her style - a very English mix of kooky and chic,” he said.

Another source of inspiration was Poppy's 2014 wedding to James Cook. The pair got hitched in Morocco, and shoes in the collection like the lace-up heeled sandals in cashmere suede and espadrilles reflect the mood of the occasion.

"[The wedding was] mystical and romantic, but interpreted in a way that felt very charming and English," Edgardo explained.

The line also features a pair of Aquazzura’s signature laced flats adorned with star and moon images, which are based on a pair of Poppy's earrings.

Prices start at $595 and go up to $1,450. Fans wanting to get their hands on a pair can pre-order from late November through Aquazzura’s website.

From December they will also be available at; Colette in Paris; Level Shoe District in Dubai; Bergdorf Goodman; Saks Fifth Avenue and
