The key aspects of Alberto Guardiani’s philosophy can be summarized as tradition,
innovation, and internationalization. In every collection, each shoe confirms this strong
DNA. The artisan’s craftsmanship, attention to detail, and constant innovation ensure high
quality and reliability in a style that is dynamic and always more contemporary. Using
these principles the company has recently launched the Seattle capsule collection in its
e-store [http://store.albertoguardiani.com/eshop/home/lang/en-iso-8859-15 ] and its
mono-brand stores. This range of footwear includes lace-ups, boots, and sneakers, showing
a powerfully expressive force in proposals for both men and for women.

This collection is designed for a public that is primarily young, for a new generation
that views vintage as a contemporary renewal of history and tradition. The careful
selection of materials and the methods of treating the leathers are key features of this
capsule collection. A mix of methods is combined in calfskin leather or in brushed and
reversed suede buffalo leather, which is used on the lace-up for women and on the boot for
men. Also, the shoe undergoes a special washing process that creates cracks in the

Another innovative artisanal experiment regards the natural colours of the sneakers
that are made with the collaboration of designer Andrea Bra. Each is individually
garment-dyed by hand and then is studded with small flat-head studs. A special colouring
technique confers various colour tonalities in the upper, in the super-light sole, in the
studs, and in the leather laces.

This mini collection will also be included in the next Spring/Summer 2014 season, with
iridescent and metallic colours airbrushed directly onto the shoes, with the application
of additional studs and metal rings; deconstructed leather soles appear on men’s shoes,
while women’s sneakers have an internal platform.
