The Artist&Customizer Giampaolo Carli is inspired by Mandala for the SS2020 capsule
Footwear conceived as a canvas on which to draw, creating works of art that can be worn. This is what you find at Cappelletti, a shoe manufacturer from the Marche region that has been collaborating with the artist and customizer Giampaolo Carli for three years, who calls himself “the sneaker tattoo artist”.
In fact, he started off by personalising Adidas ‘Stan Smiths’ with his drawings and since then his work has become immediately recognisable. Doodles and freehand drawings are fixed to the shoe so as not to discolour it, but rendering the shoe unique.
For the recent Cappelletti collection, he created mandala-inspired designs – either in black and white or with colours – for the sneakers.
