Uniqueness made in italy what else
note. It’s just like a symphony orchestra FABI products can make dreams come true with eyes closed or wide open. The difference being in the personalisation. Production is all Italian, and more precisely I wish to underscore it comes from the Marche region. Distribution is closely tied to the clientele day by day so as to be constantly updated on its needs. We’re currently exporting 70% of our production which means Fabi footwear is strong internationally. Over and above every other consideration the research, identification and selection of the material is fundamental. Call it a mania if you like. The materials used are the core of the whole process here at Fabi, because the skins are like seeds to us from which shoes are born. It’s another way of saying Top Quality and we mean just that. But not only, since many can do that, since skins can be aged, roughened, brushed, tanned, whitened even painted meaning an infinity of different processes can be deployed; yet they’re not repeatable on the same piece or cut since cuts differ and they’re never the same. Man’s intervention at this stage is like a painter’s brush stroke: there’s no same brush stroke, nor gesture even if it’s repeated millions of times over can it be exactly the same as the first one. Over two hundred experts and master craftsmen work daily in production. After all it is not possible to produce certain pairs of shoes with no handcraft and there is no machine that can substitute or come close to the delicacy of man’s fingers. S/Y: Which is the “timeless classic” model you will never stop offering The historical British workmanship of the Goodyear model which we’ve transformed into our fully patented Flex Goodyear model thanks to the blending of two essential elements needed to reach the wanted goal: Quality and technology. We developed shoes featuring self modelling soles that deliver offer high level experience, and an all new flexibility. Fabi Flex Goodyear is entirely handcrafted with great care given to detail. It is lightweight and designed to maximize wearers’ comfort. Imagine as many as 102 steps are required for each shoe. Elegance takes the lion’s share in every collection of Fabi’s range, and redefining the concept of what is “classic” Fabi offers a unique style in each collection without giving away anything in the way of comfort. SY: Yours is an international clientele? Yes absolutely, we have an enormous clientele and our collections are getting more and more complex all the time. The kind of evolution we are facing is rather more induced than deduced. Induced because the markets we relate to, have over time requested more diversification, and deduced because we felt the moment, the need to consolidate our range had come and we wanted to fully express our own way of interpreting contemporary styles. SY: Can you give us a clue of what you have in store for the coming Men’s Spring/summer Collection? Innovative practical things are still the “fil rouge” which in any case leaves ample space to both versatility and of course elegance which is common denominator to all of the Fabi collection. Contemporary men requiring handcrafted footwear featuring care for detail, elegance, light-weight, without sacrificing comfort can choose different models for a variety of diverse moments: day, evening, work/business related meetings, formal dinners and more. Different colours play a prime role, but the clear perception of their comfort is the pivot round which we have dedicated much work. In fact we’ll be taking our ever present Flex Goodyear patented models to the next Pitti Uomo 2017 venue together with the recent Superflex range which is a natural evolution from the preceding Flex version.
All new design hand painted colours for sneakers will also be presented in the course of this coming event in a considerable explosion of diverse hues. S/Y: Future projects? We’ve been working with Japan for about a year and their market is responding well which makes us happy about the way things are evolving.the R&D work we put into this project has paid off deservedly so, and our “Made in Italy” is more respected and appreciated than before which means we’ll be focusing on Asian markets more in the foreseeable future. S/Y: What’s luxury to Emanuele Fabi? Less is more..showing off, must be avoided with all that is considered unbridled, excessive and exaggerated in terms of luxury, to reveal a more secretive, more refined luxury...therefore in addition to saying luxury, I’d add the term elegance...it’s in the details a bow tie, a little purse, a fine perfume but also a tie which is worn a shade loosely marking the close of a pleasant evening, like an appealing charm that would like to continue to fascinate but in a less patterned and more relaxed way.

Aston Martin finally unveiled the first unit of its AM 37 realised with Quintessence Yachts in the course of the latest MYS. The iconic British brand thus enters the world of yachting with this first model. This is a premium level day cruiser delivered after two years of R&D to conjugate innovative technology with Aston Martin’s traditional craftsmanship. The same team of craftsmen which previously worked on other Aston Martin models, the One-77, the Vulcan and the new DB11 also passed on their knowledge in the making of the AM37 to Quintessence Yachts technicians who successfully managed to reinterpret everything for the yacht. Marek Reichman, EVP and chief Creative Officer for Aston Martin commented as follows: “AM represents fully Aston Martin’s DNA translated into a new nautical concept. This power boat mirrors all our values in terms of power beauty and spirit. The most important attribute for Aston Martin is proportion and design which we have transferred into AM37. It was of considerable importance to us to be sure that this boat’s design was going to be notably beautiful and timeless like our cars”. The result is a very refined daycruiser right up to the smallest detail, starting with a windscreen which has been made out of a single cut glass sheet expertly handcrafted to be enclosed with three carbon protective panels which at the push of a button slot back into their recess in the cockpit accordingly. Furthermore AM37 is equipped with an electrical/hydraulic bimini top in carbon fibre and the dashboard recalls obvious Aston Martin class in the styling. The interior decor sports fine skins and precious fabric. The layout comprises a dinette which doubles as night zone plus all you need to spend a relaxing week end. The AM37 comes in two versions, the first one with a pair of 370 HP Mercury diesels or a pair of 430 HP Mercury petrol engines which should be capable of propelling the boat to 45 knots. The second version the AM37S is powered up with more muscle represented by two 520 HP Mercury petrol engines which deliver a confirmed top speed of more than 50 knots.

Founded in 1997 by Rob Innes Dan Piazza, Innespace Productions has been building numerous submarines for recreational purposes. Dolphin and Seabreacher models are the more popular and they’re shaped rather like fish. The Seabreacher line is made up of three different versions the X, Y and Z, they’re all powered up with 1500 c.c. Rotax engines which deliver 260 HP. Seating capacity goes from just one plus two with which you can experience steering through head dives, 360° spins vertical descents and steep climbs out of the water as well with the “nose” pointing up towards the sky. In the course of the latest Salon Nautico held in Barcelona Spain which lasted four days from October 12th to 16th, Charterdart charter brokers presented the latest Seabreacher S which can be personalised on request through charter agencies and is powered up with a 300 HP Supercharged Rotax engine with a top speed of 60kph.this special version is dedicated to superyachts. The lines which come as standard recall sharks, killer whales, or dolphins. The S model is also equipped with better quality audio gear and navigational aids and with a larger bubble like thick glass which offers enhanced visibility of the surroundings. “Every charter party wants to have fun and looks for memorable and exciting experiences” says Briand Hardman, Charterdart’s founder who’s got the exclusivity clause to sell Seabreacher S. “In a really crowded charter market, you have the opportunity of standing out from the chorus line by upgrading your yacht’s toys which helps, and can command a higher rating. We’re happy to have acquired the exclusivity for the Seabreacher S, which is something unique like no other on the market and to have added it to our evolving list of available water toys.
