About Raphael Young

Born in Seoul and adopted by a French family, designer Raphael Young learned his trade from his uncle, a respected bottier, and created his first pair of shoes at age 14. After working as an assistant at Yves Saint Laurent, Young started his own brand in 2007, quickly earning a reputation for his sculptural creations, which have been worn by the likes of Sarah Jessica Parker, Rihanna, and Lady Gaga. Young's flagship store opened in Paris in 2010, and continues to dispense ultra-modern, high-fashion heels and wedges made with traditional artisanal techniques.

Raphael Young - 6/27/2011

Shoe obsessives like Sarah Jessica Parker love this French designer's sculptural designs, and the contents of this sale make it easy to see why. You'll find unique—and towering—takes on of-the-moment styles like the peep-toe wedge and the stiletto cut-out bootie. Those looking for something lower, but equally chic, can check out comparatively demure low-wedge options in black.
