Over a year ago, I started designing a collection for a new brand called Botisto. The collection is dedicated to creating the perfectly fitted, leather dress shoes.
And, how is this possible, you ask?
With modern technology, style and Italian workmanship, of course.
I am working with old Italian shoe manufacturing families in the Lombardia region, where they started to make shoes in 1392, and where the first, ever, industrial shoe factory was started in 1866. So, I am working with some experienced hands.
And now, after choosing lasts, leathers, colours, after drawing designs, outsoles, as well as after dinners and lunches with incredible coffee and limoncello, it is time to launch the collection! The first shop opens on August 26th, 2011 in Barcelona, Spain.
