Atelier Mercadal Vintage

Since its launch at the beginning of the 1980's, the house of Mercadal has known an immense success thanks to the beauty of the shape and the richness of leathers. Ines Olympe, daughter of the 5th generation, was inspired by the house heritage to create her own line Mercadal Vintage. Her collection is a rework of the Elena model, created in 1980 in the Mercadal factory: a stiletto with a 7 cm conic heel, where the shape and materials play a crucial part.

Who are you?
I am Ines Olympe Mercadal aka IOM: founder of the Mercadal Vintage studio, I am part of the 5th generation of shoemaker in my family.

How did you start in fashion?
A bit like Obelix when he fell in the magic potion...I grew up in my parents' factories, surrounded with the smell of leather and glue.

How would you define your style?
I push the classic style to the extremes with my oversize bun that I've been wearing for 10 years, my disproportionately big glasses and my Mercadal Vintage pumps.

What inspires you?
Mercadal's records, the press releases of the 80's and the memory of my mother waiting for me in front of my school when I was a kid and her elegance.

A few words about this collection...
Mercadal Vintage Studio is a new birth for our 80's best sellers. A collection of pumps with conic heels, a not only classic but also original look thanks to the choice of materials and colors. My shoes are feminine but suitable for the asphalt and the town. It is a collection that looks like me: rock n' fun.

What's your favorite piece in our selection?
The Vava in natural and black python. They suit every outfit, from summer to winter.

What are you most proud of?
To be able to contribute to the familial brand story.

Where do you manufacture your products?
Handmade in Spain con mucho carino.

Where can we find your collection?
In Atelier Mercadal, 4 rue du Cherche Midi in Paris, Galeries Lafayettes, In Japan, IN China and in Russia.

If your brand was a music, a movie, a cocktail...
The movie playing in my head. I cannot tell you, I might get into troubles !
