Dear Readers,

As promised in my previous article, let’s stay in Milan a bit longer to discover the latest Alberto Guardiani collection. Indeed, I had the chance to visit their showroom in Milan and was very kindly welcomed. Here is my review of the collection, focusing on my favorite models.

BRITISH INFLUENCE

The classic Italian shoe maker divided its Milanese showroom in two spaces to present its new collection .The first room introduced visitors to classic shoes, (derbies, brogues, boots or slippers) but under a british influence and reworked with innovative fabrics such as neoprene. The second room took it to the streets, with a line of luxury sneakers adorned with punchy details, such as flashy colors, studs or metallic bars.

HELP! I NEED SOMEBODY

The fusion of the “The Beatles” inspiration with modern fabrics and shapes could be seen on the JOHN Booties model. A contemporary sole, thicker at the heel and slowly getting thinner on its way to the toes, supports a classically designed calf-skin leather boot, with English-style perforations. Mixed with suede, it also incorporates less formal elements, pairing both laces and a Velcro buckle.

Modern elegance, for a shoe that could be worn all day through for a smart chic and stylish allure.

THE SNEAKER ERA

The Guardiani Sport line clearly indicated the brand’s intention of establishing itself as a luxury sneakers master and targeting a perhaps younger clientele.

A striking model was the the new TRUMAN sneaker, a luxury leather sneaker finished with a large Velcro buckle and a surprising golden piercing bar at the front. A functional and aesthetic novelty and a way to make a statement. To be worn with a minimalistic simple outfit, to let them stand out for themselves!

The TUDOR slip-ons in kaki or “forest green” color were a great example of what the brand stands for today: quality, craftsmanship and understanding of what a modern stylish man needs in his shoe wardrobe. Grained leather and suede for the chic details, large white sole for a clean touch, and a side zipper for a trendy touch.
