The duo worked together to create a custom collection inspired by Natalia's Russian heritage. Featuring intricate embroidery, the heels and loafers featuring the words "My Naked Heart" stitched onto the front and are stamped with her signature inside the shoe. Launching with her 'Play With Purpose' program, Natalia has expanded her outreach with the Naked Heart Foundation since 2004 to include creating schools, rehabilitation centers and orphanages all over Russia with the aim of providing education and healthcare facilites to children in need.
