DALL’IN­FRA­DI­TO in tes­su­to tec­ni­co al­la snea­ker slip on, dal ci­ty san­dal con suo­la fles­si­bi­le al­la zep­pa esti­va con pla­teau ef­fet­to le­gno. Pun­ta a stu­pi­re, la nuo­va col­le­zio­ne NR Ra­pi­sar­di, che per l’esta­te 2016 ha stu­dia­to co­lo­ri, ma­te­ria­li e mo­del­li de­sti­na­ti a fa­re ten­den­za. Lo sto­ri­co brand fio­ren­ti­no di cal­za­tu­re è sbar­ca­to in pri­ma­ve­ra a For­te dei Mar­mi con un flag­ship sto­re dal de­ci­so im­pat­to este­ti­co. L’open spa­ce ac­co­glie i clien­ti in un am­bien­te che ri­spec­chia fe­del­men­te la li­nea dei pro­dot­ti: il de­si­gn è mi­ni­mal ma for­te­men­te at­trat­ti­vo, i ma­te­ria­li in­no­va­ti­vi e di qua­li­tà, l’at­mo­sfe­ra con­tem­po­ra­nea e ri­cer­ca­ta. Sot­to l’in­stal­la­zio­ne ar­ti­sti­ca a tut­ta pa­re­te – un’ope­ra rea­liz­za­ta ad hoc dal vi­sual de­si­gner Fau­sto Ca­let­ti con due chi­lo­me­tri di ela­sti­co in ban­da mul­ti­co­lor – so­no espo­sti con sem­pli­ce ele­gan­za i mo­del­li esclu­si­vi del­la sta­gio­ne. Due i con­cept in­tor­no ai qua­li è mo­du­la­ta l’of­fer­ta per la don­na NR Ra­pi­sar­di: gym ur­ba­no e wood sum­mer. Cal­za­tu­re fun­zio­na­li, con­for­te­vo­li e dal ca­rat­te­re in­con­fon­di­bi­le, in­te­ra­men­te rea­liz­za­te in To­sca­na da sa­pien­ti ar­ti­gia­ni che la­vo­ra­no ma­te­rie pri­me d’al­ta gam­ma. E se la tra­di­zio­ne cal­za­tu­rie­ra af­fon­da le ra­di­ci nel lon­ta­no 1959, l’in­no­va­zio­ne tec­no­lo­gi­ca ha ri­vo­lu­zio­na­to l’of­fer­ta di un brand sem­pre “al pas­so” in quan­to a sti­le e ma­te­ria­li. Co­me di­mo­stra il mood ca­sual e di­na­mi­co del­la co­mo­dis­si­ma snea­ker slip on del­la col­le­zio­ne autunno/in­ver­no: so­ste­ni­bi­le e com­ple­ta­men­te “ani­mal free” (ade­ri­sce all’omo­ni­mo pro­get­to del­la Le­ga An­ti Vi­vi­se­zio­ne ita­lia­na) è mo­der­na e ac­cat­ti­van­te an­che nel no­me, “Stret­ch your li­fe”. Ad af­fian­car­la, san­da­li cit­ta­di­ni con zep­pe me­die o suo­le fles­si­bi­li, ispi­ra­ti al mon­do del­lo sport e pen­sa­ti per coc­co­la­re il pie­de nel­le lun­ghe gior­na­te fuori ca­sa, ma an­che tac­chi, pla­teau e wed­ges dall’ef­fet­to po­li­shed wood, ac­co­sta­ti a pel­la­mi dai co­lo­ri na­tu­ra­li, ela­sti­ci to­tal black o ma­te­ria­li eth­nic chic.

STRIDING TH­ROU­GH SUM­MER

This sea­son’s NR Ra­pi­sar­di wo­men’s col­lec­tion re­vol­ves on a dual con­cept axis: ur­ban gym and wood sum­mer.
