Italian designer Isaia puts his best foot forward
Italian designer Gianluca Isaia has branched out into footwear with his new Isaia line of gentlemen's shoes.
Constructed for men who appreciate traditional shapes yet dislike the inherent stodginess of an English brogue, Isaia's handmade collection is composed of 21 classic styles which display subtle nuances of contemporary detailing, which includes topstitching reminiscent of an English riding saddle, and clour combinations of olive green and rich mocha. Offering alligator, lizard and other exotic skins through special order, Isaia has covered all the bases.
Isaia's addition of a mens footwear collection is the latest in the continual expansion of the fashion label which now stretches to travel bags, sneakers and a flagship boutique on Via Verri in Milan's Golden Triangle shopping district. The store will sell Isaia's new waterproof wool fabric known as AquaSpider which has spawned the evolution of a line of Aqua materials, such as AquaCashmere, which are the foundation of the fashion labels stylish new designs.
"Gianluca Isaia is a great believer in the adage that a man's shoes reflect his personality"
