San­toni Au­tumn/win­ter 15/16 Col­lec­tion

Virtuozity - - BOUTIQUE -

San­toni re­cently re­leased its col­lec­tion for the Au­tumn/win­ter sea­son of 2015 and 2016, with the main theme be­ing that of man con­quer­ing the con­crete jun­gle in which he thrives.

Dif­fer­ent styles com­bined in a re­search of the high­est crafts­man­ship with a taste for unique de­tail­ing and con­tam­i­na­tion of styles. The col­lec­tion de­scribes an ad­ven­tur­ous and proud man that never has to pre­tend—what San­toni de­scribes as a con­tem­po­rary ob­server. The brand adds that the dis­re­gard for the rules is the sur­pris­ing com­mon thread and the clas­si­cal na­ture is the re­as­sur­ing fil rouge.

So­lu­tions and pat­terns com­bine and cross­breed shift­ing the for­mal de­tail­ing on the shoes, con­ceived for a stroll in the coun­try and an un­ex­pected touch in the rein­vented clas­sics. Gaiters, ex­pres­sion of re­fine­ment of the past, fea­ture the pre­cious rid­ing boots in ro­bust and lux­u­ri­ous leather. The iconic dou­ble buckle is ap­plied to derby shoes as well as the com­posed yet trans­gres­sive boots and the dressy slip-ons, while metal­lic pip­ing gen­er­ate re­flec­tions on the fringes of the dandy brogue.

Elon­gated and sculpted in the new shapes, the lace-up shoes fea­ture satin strings as he­do­nist ac­cents; a re­cur­rent de­tail found on the hand-painted hik­ing boots with vel­vet de­tails con­ceived for a black­tie out­fit. Slip­pers and fur moon boots evoke snowy land­scapes and cozy chalets, while sturdy boots and farmer boots, re­vised in their es­sen­tial and com­posed pro­por­tions, re­call the world of out­doors.

Bags, back­packs and the clas­sic brief­case are ev­ery­thing else this ex­plorer needs. His dis­tinc­tive el­e­ment is rep­re­sented by the dou­ble buckle.

The colour pal­ette is or­ganic and warm: shades of brown, hints of blue and touches of black. Hand laid patina be­stows a tac­tile qual­ity on the colours. The ma­te­ri­als are brushed calf­skin,

moose, croc­o­dile, and fur.
