Straight out of the canon, the classics that simply have to be a part of every man’s wardrobe

[On the cover: Celine fashion show SS2020]

The essential codes of men’s style are also present in footwear. While very few evergreen models belong to the world of the classics, they never fall out of fashion.

Oxfords and Derbys – which differ in their lacing – shoes with one or two buckles (monk or double monk), moccasins and loafers hark back to the canons of the footwear tradition.

They combine impeccable construction, attention to detail, quality skins and, of course, leather soles. And, when they are made in Italy, they also guarantee added value in the form of know-how, taste, heritage and expertise. Connoisseurs also cannot undervalue the importance of the finish and the polish which, thanks to brushing, hand buffing and antiquating techniques, give unique nuances to the leathers.
