Handmade Slippers by Farfalla

Handmade Slippers by Farfalla | Le Marche & Fashion | Scoop.it

High expression of quality craftsmanship, the Farfalla brand is linked to the production of authentic handmade Italian shoes.
Commonly called “slippers”, but not only suitable for indoor use, Farfalla footwear fit perfectly in the category of modern slip-on loafers, a timeless line of shoes that today is so much appreciated by major designers labels as to become trendy.
For each season, Farfalla offers several models of open or closed slippers, for man or woman.
Comfortable and elegant, Farfalla slippers are distinguished into two main categories:
- evergreen, for a timeless but contemporary look;
- glam, for a fashionable and trendy look.

In addition to the traditional Classic line slippers, for each of the above categories Farfalla shoe factory also produces particularly soft and flexible slippers practical for travelling.
To meet the customer’s wishes, Farfalla shoes can be customized with a name or initials and manufactured with further variations to their standard features.

Mariano Pallottini's insight:

Made of craftsmen whose valuable experience is passed on from generation to generation, the Farfalla shoe factory is now run by Stefano and Nicola Raffaeli, two young and modern businessmen who have wisely maintained the traditional approach of their predecessors: first of all, grandfather Francesco, shoemaker after World War II, followed mainly by Alfeo, his son, and Aurora, Alfeo’s wife, with whom the latter gave birth to the Farfalla brand in 1955.

Thanks to their unique wearing comfort, Farfalla footwear have always met the approval of their customers.
Softness, flexibility and lightness are the result of California shoe construction technique (slip lasting method), where the elements that make up each slipper are held together exclusively by stitching, and not glued nor heat-welted as in a common shoe.
Farfalla shoes have always been synonymous with quality and refinement. That’s why the Farfalla brand is sold in many countries around the world and the Farfalla shoe factory works with many prestigious companies. [...]

Le Marche Shoes online | Rossi Shoes Le Marche: fabulous men's shoes now in ecommerce | Le Marche & Fashion | Scoop.it

Few years ago it was impossible to observe online the shoe collections of traditionalists Le Marche shoe brands. There was the fear for the imitation of expert local or international shoemakers .
The multiplication of the collections, the reduced time between productions, the impossibility to predict the success of a model and the need to reinforce the name of the brand, favored the online presence of the Marche footwear district. Passing through the direct sale in factory outlet, almost all brands are selling online with the ecommerce formula. Today, this is an established phenomenon . All the brands own an ecommerce or possess a "dedicated" space into some important sites in the sector (such as http://www.yoox.com/ or http://www.luisaviaroma.com/ ) or both.  The price policy is not yet mature but improving.

A beautiful style secret | the buried shoes of Silvano Lattanzi

A beautiful style secret | the buried shoes of Silvano Lattanzi | Le Marche & Fashion | Scoop.it

In 1837, the greatest Italian poet of the time Giacomo Leopardi died due to an asthma attack at the age of 38, in a small apartment in Napoli. Legend has it that when his grave was dug up, the only item that helped identify his body was a pair of ankle boots found inside the coffin. They were the same size and style as seen in the poets’ portraits. The buried boots survived, perfectly preserved after 63 years!

And so, inspired by this story, Silvano Lattanzi, a shoe maker known for his unconventional materials and concepts, decided to bury different pairs of shoes in a garden for a period of four years in order for them to achieve the same kind of preservation and the antique feel. And following this procedure of naturally ageing shoes below the earth, the buried shoes have come back to life!

The new process involves the footwear being placed on a carpet of straw for protection and covered with dried flowers and other perfumed herbage. The leather shoes result in tones and shades so unique and remarkable, it is impossible to reproduce.[...]

Luxury Shoes by Fabi

Luxury Shoes by Fabi | Le Marche & Fashion | Scoop.it

Which are the characteristics of luxury shoes? A luxury shoe is not just a stylish shoe, but it is a great shoe. Excellent in design: in fact luxury shoes means shoes by famous designers that make them unique in their lines. Excellent is also the choice of materials, as in the case of jewel shoes, but not only. Because the shoe is not an ornament, but it has to be worn in order to contribute to the elegance of the wearer.

Luxury shoes are footwear well-finished, where the workmanship is not the result of an industrial production, but the craftsmanship of the masters of shoemaking tradition.

A collection in which the character and the personality of the wearer comes out with strength and vehemence. The extreme femininity of every creation is enhanced by the height, often extreme, made more accessible by the use of the platform in this collection presented in a new way: fully inserted into the upper gives the shoe a more harmonious yet decided and performing aspect; all expertly embellished with metal studs.

The Land of Artisans and Christmas Shopping in Marche

The Land of Artisans and Christmas Shopping in Marche | Le Marche & Fashion | Scoop.it

Le Marche, (pronounced Mar-kay) is an undiscovered gem. Situated in central Italy, between the Adriatic sea and the Apennine mountains, it’s the region I call home. We are trying to keep it quiet really, but I just have to share the secret of wonderful shopping here.
Marche is known for it’s leather craftmanship and artisans, producing 90% of all Italy’s shoes. Many are hidden in the hill-top towns (in the centre of Marche near Fermo), family run businesses quietly making beautiful leather items for the big designer names.
Best known of course is Tod’s, whose famous moccasins/driving shoes and handbags are always favourites with celebrities and royalty. The classic “D” bag, named after Princess Diana, is now also being carried by Kate Middleton. Why pay high-street prices when you can come to the factory store and enjoy soaking up the atmosphere of Italy at the same time! You can find the “D‘ handbag in many different colours in their stylish store at 495 euros, reduced from 890 euros. [...]

Images of elaborate design, of bourgeois ambiences, self confident women and geometric inspirations. Sophisticated materials: leather, velvet, precious fabrics, crocodile.

Starting from these assumptions, the autumn/winter 2013-14 collection for Santoni woman.

Fashion tips by Franceschetti Shoes: The Monkstrap Shoe

Fashion tips by Franceschetti Shoes: The Monkstrap Shoe | Le Marche & Fashion | Scoop.it

The monkstrap, mostly known as the shoe with the buckle. It is essentially a derby, not closed by laces, but through a side band which ends with a buckle. This model wraps the instep dressing it up to make it elegant because of the buckle, that gives it an authoritative touch … almost noble. It’s a shoe that carries with itself a certain charm: it was the shoe of the nobles between 1600 and 1800, but it is also the shoe of the Three Musketeers and that of the Pirates. Its origins seem to be, however, very modest. It seems to orginate from the monks’ sandals laced on one side.
Nowadays there are many versions: they go from the smooth leather versions to the brogued ones, and buckles can be from one to three. The advantage of this shoe is that it hasn’t the drawback of possible breakage of the laces, but it’s preferable to wear it with a straight and not too long pant, otherwise the buckle may get caught with the hem. It is for this reason that the monkstrap is very fashionable this season. [...]
