Founded in 2010, MERY is the fashion brand of designer Mery Racauchi. Mery was born in Argentina and studied fashion design before becoming internationally recognized as one of the foremost designers of her generation. Mery's brand is now based in New York City in the heart of SoHo where she regularly connects with other top designers.
Mery began making clothes and shoes by hand which created a personalized, quirky, and very human design aesthetic that still informs her products today. She draws inspiration from travel, vintage fashion trends, and music like glam rock and pop.
Her themes include bright colors (usually pink!), glitter, sequins, using fabric in unexpected places, magically comfortable heels, and unique hardware accents that convey a sense of whimsy and fun.
Mery's signature design is her elegant pink-soled shoes, known for being fashion forward without giving up the perfect fit. All of Mery's shoes are individually crafted with details such as hand-sewn leather, painted elements, and embroidery to give each pair its own personality.
Mery's designs are rebellious and rule-breaking but most of all lighthearted and fun.
They appear as if from a magical world where the ordinary standards of reality disappear and are replaced by a singularly unique creative vision.
Mery has a talent for predicting trends and popularizing designs which has created a global audience for her brand.
