“Witnessing the craftsmanship at GINA's factory was the most amazing experience. We went into the GINA archive and managed to rework our favourite silhouette's from the 90s – the shapes, colours and fabrics we had to choose from were awe inspiring. The exclusive GINA x RIXO shoes we created together combine the essence of GINA's timeless styles with the playful aesthetic of our SS19 collection.”

RIXO’s story began in September 2015 in the London living room of best friends Henrietta Rix & Orlagh McCloskey, born from their passion for vintage. Combining the young Creative Directors’ own names, the brand’s philosophy is to evoke a wanderlust & free spirit in all their wearers, filling a gap in the contemporary market with vintage-inspired easy-to-wear feminine shapes and high-quality materials. Always inclusive, always empowering, RIXO create a fusion of original hand-painted prints and timeless silhouettes to flatter every woman irrespective of age, season, shape, nationality or time of day.
In September 2018 RIXO presented their Spring/ Summer 2019 collection at the brand’s debut London Fashion Week presentation. Inspired by Henrietta and Orlagh’s favourite 80’s icons, the name of the SS19 collection ‘Love Over Gold’ is a nod to Princess Diana’s favourite Dire Straits album. RIXO’s inaugural presentation included ready-to-wear and marked the brand’s first foray into accessories including bags, belts, scarves and jewellery, as well as a special exclusive footwear collaboration with GINA.
