The Coclico collection finds beauty in the understated, and in the intentionally simple. Primarily inspired by nature, the brand strives to respect its muse in the design and manufacturing process. The collection’s symbol and logo is the poppy flower, “coquelicot” in French. Like this intoxicating and lusty flower, Coclico shoes bloom with time and wear.
Born and raised in the French countryside, Sandra Canselier, the creator of Coclico, descends from a line of shoemakers: her great-grandfather, grandfather and father all designed and produced artisan shoes. After graduating from IPAG in Paris, she decided to strike out on her own in a new country.
Inspired by the energy of New York city, Sandra launched her unique line in 2000, designed for women living modern lives, seeking effortless design, wearable day and night. She then opened the Coclico retail store on Mott Street. The brand has found a perfect home in the intimate streets of Nolita. The collection has gained a following among women who want subtly beautiful, cool, practical footwear.
In 2006 Sandra teamed up with designer Lisa Nading, who is dedicated to meticulous design and construction, and committed to making Coclico an ecologically conscious shoe company.
