PARIS, Oct 18, 2010 / FW/ — Heir to a long line of Spanish shoemakers from Menorca, Inès-Olympe Mercadal continues the family tradition with her mother Marie Laure Mercadal, creator of ATELIER MERCADAL line.

At age 23, Inès-Olympe designs a capsule collection, ATELIER MERCADAL VINTAGE, and thus earns her rite of passage to the family business.

She claims her Spanish origins, her passion for shoes and her fondness for factories guide her, “because it is in the factories that we learn to draw shoes” .
