Alessandra Facchinetti is the kind of woman that other women should aspire to be (this woman does, at least). The 43 year-old is poised and polished and talks about her current job -- heading the creative direction of Tod's -- with an actual glimmer of excitement in her eye. While the creative corporatism of modern apparel design often lacks that genuine zeal, Facchinetti's passion for her position is no accident.
Starting with the brand’s top of the line Oxford wingtip brogue, the JOHNNIE WALKER Oliver Sweeney brogue, was reworked so that the last and crank of the shoe (that’s the shape of the base of the last, for the uninitiated) could fit a whiskey miniature in the heel without compromising the shoe’s sleek lines. Working with their factory in the Italian Marche, the heel was designed and re-engineered customized to this model so that it could be attached from the sides, rather than through the middle. [...]

In his modeling days, Armando Cabral appeared in ads for H&M, Target, and J.Crew, as well as high-end brands. He decided to break with modeling, save for the occasional high-visibility print campaign, about a year ago, and now devotes his time to the namesake footwear company he started in 2009.
The eponymous shoe collection of Guinean-Born fashion model Armando Cabral was envisioned and fabricated from a life-long, riveting passion for the shoe. The brand itself reveals a modern & metropolitan perspective, showcasing the paradigms of a lifestyle distinctly affiliated with Armando himself – personality, style, and individualism. An aesthetic fusion of minimalism with a classic approach, and careful attention to detail, the design is idiosyncratic to the brands ideals.
Manufactured in the Italian shoe-making district of Marche, the engrained Italian sensibilities of transcendent creativity, tradition, design, and innovation are fully immersed in the fabrication and construction of our product.
<<Love is the spirit behind my brand, Piero Guidi “Angeli del nostro tempo”. My studies led me to the world of art: I studied for my “Maestro d’Arte” diploma at the prestigious “Scuola del Libro” in Urbino, the pearl of the Italian Renaissance, where Raphael was born. This is where my story began, my passion for art, sculpture and graphics. My knowledge of metals led me to start creating handmade items for everyday use: first belts, then bags, suitcases and, later on, clothing: objects desired by people who surround themselves with beautiful things every day. My Factory, where my ideas and designs are born, is located here in Urbino.
“Angeli del nostro tempo” is dedicated to all the people who buy what I make, every day all over the world, living the spirit of love in all its forms. All the “Angeli del nostro tempo” collections are distinguished by the symbol of two angels in flight, embracing one another in a gesture of love: a man and a woman, which I think is how every one of us would like to be.>> [...]

As a toddler, Marco Massaccesi played in his father’s atelier, a workshop built on Marco’s grandparents’ land near beautiful Ascoli Piceno in the Marche region of Italy. When Marco was twelve years old, his father began to teach him how to work with leather. These lessons did not include modern assembly machines or other contemporary ways of quick manufacturing. Marco practiced and mastered the art of leatherworking using centuries’ old techniques. The world was a different place then, Marco recalls. A time when “designers were designers for real, and bags were truly handmade in authentic Italian workshops.” [...]

The tradition and innovation continue in the very workshop that Alberto founded.
