The mastery of Italian craftsmanship in the processing of the upper
The Turkish designer Serdar Uzuntas has set his men’s collection for 22/23 -inspired by the Olympic discipline of fencing- in Milan, at the Circolo della Spada Mangiarotti. To complete the garments made from wool, neoprene, cotton, and leather, is a series of shoes with hand-woven uppers from Elif Malkoclar’s Scandicci Ebi workshop. An artisan who since 2004 has kept alive the tradition of the ancient techniques and manual skills that distinguish certain ‘Made in Italy’ processes. An artistic heritage of know-how, based entirely on the hands that make the artifacts unique, one never the same as the other. Through processes such as weaving, crocheting, knotting, macrame, and felting, belts, bags, footwear, and clothing items can be obtained, which have paved the way for collaborations with even the most famous fashion brands for the laboratory.
