Le Marche creativity: Silvano Lattanzi and the entombed shoes

Le Marche creativity: Silvano Lattanzi and the entombed shoes | Le Marche & Fashion | Scoop.it

To ascertain how his creations would weather the elements, Silvano Lattanzi buried some of his best footwear in a few feet of dirt. After more than four years, he unearthed the shoes to find that they had taken on a beautiful, rough-hewn patina that could not be reproduced by any factory-based process. Unimaginable as it may seem, Lattanzi’s new Scarpe di Fossa, or "entombed shoes," are available for consumers, along with other novelties, such as reversible moccasins and crocodile sneakers stitched in the colors of the Italian flag.
