Designer: Armando Cabral
Key styles: The collection is broken into three concepts: the hybrid, a mix of a shoe and sneaker that features classic styling with casual bottoms; contemporary sneakers, designed to replace a regular shoe, and an assortment of leather slip-on espadrilles. All the shoes are made in Italy and are sold in 13 countries around the world.
Design/aesthetic: There’s more to Cabral than just a pretty face. Although he’s been a regular on runways around the world for years, it wasn’t until 2009 that he truly followed his passion. It was that year that the Guinean-born fashion model launched his namesake collection of shoes. His line of men’s footwear is sophisticated and versatile — styles can be dressed up or dressed down — and above all, comfortable.
