Patatina mary jane

Soon after moving to Genova this September I discovered Profumo, an very posh but discrete pasticceria hidden off the corner of one of the most famous streets of the city. The staff are studiously unfriendly unless you are seventh-generation genovese and your grandparents used to spend a lot of money there, the window displays are bravura displays of austere confidence BUT there is one candy they make that I love. That candy is called "Patatina" (in Italian: small potato, or also slang for pussy). This little pussy is pale pink on the outside (sugar and almond flour), and on the inside there is a juicy red candied cherry. Sublime. I had to make a shoe in honour of it. So meet little Mary Jane Patatina, built on our classic ultralight and comfy Italian-made EVA wedge sole (in Simona Vanth collections since 2019's The Adolescent Dracula collection) coupled with a metallic pink leather upper, a cherry red patent leather bow, custom SV pendant attached to the buckle and, for detail obsessives, a Halley-Stevenson waxed cotton tartan insole. 

Limited edition, produced in only 4 pieces.
