Ornella spezzati, designer

Shelight was born in 2008 in Tuscany, Italy’s artistic heartland, from the creative talent of Ornella Spezzati, a designer who is innovative in her choices and combinations of materials and finishes, a lover of taste and refinement, but always attentive to practicality and ease of use.

Original, different and visionary, these are the three adjectives that characterise the brand’s DNA.

In 2010, Shelight presented at Premiere classe Paris its first shoes collection of jewel sandals with exclusive leathers and silk satins in different heights and colours. In particular, the Lightkiss model, embellished with 40 hand-set Swarovski crystals, and the Queen model will be selected by Swarovski International Holdings and displayed at the official Swarovski stand at New York Fashion Week. Shelight’s Lightkiss and Queen, will be appreciated and worn by various celebrities in Europe and the United States.

The following years saw the opening of the brand’s official showroom in Milan and the development of a sales network that would lead to Shelight being featured in some of the most prestigious boutiques on the international stage.

In 2012, Shelight presented its first collection of flip-flops with the exclusive clip-on system, inaugurating a new and fascinating shopping experience.

With the clip-on-system, it is possible to change and alternate the shapes, materials and colours of Shelight’s exclusive jewellery accessories on all models in the flip-flop collection. The success of the clip-on-system will lead Shelight to expand the range of models to be offered to the public. Today, the clip-on-system is present on every model of the Brand’s shoe collection; from ballerinas in soft leather and velvet to alpargatas in fabric. Another founding characteristic of the Brand, is the high quality, which has always been present in every detail and in every collection of the maison.

In 2017, Shelight opened its first official store in Palma de Mallorca, pearl of the Balearic Islands, in one of the most charming and special spaces in the historic centre, and also presented its first pret a porter collection; retro-chic dresses designed and conceived to become a best-buy. Ever-present style companions and a discreet but indispensable part of every woman’s dress code.

In 2022, Shelight renews and graphically restyles its shopping-on-line, expanding the offer of its collections, trying to take care of after-sales and customer care in the best possible way, driven by a single desire: the search for beauty, elegance and well-made.
