The Charles Jourdan brand first emphasized the use of innovative materials and later for more conservative designs such as taking the basicpump, lengthening the toe and adding simple buckles to increase both its delicacy and its tailored image. Today Charles Jourdan takes a bold step forward with strong colors and forms. Built on clean, geometric lines, these profiles are highlighted by patterns that underscore their graphicdesign and natural elegance. The modern vision of romanticism is marked by the virgule heel. There are two distinct themes used, the “Spot”, where roundness is the key, working with uppers and perforated bows, and“Basic”, taking timeless classics and expressing their elegance and refinement.
