LONDON — Alvaro Gonzalez, the Spanish accessories designer who has built a career working for brands including Valentino, Loewe, Tod’s, Jimmy Choo and most recently Stuart Weitzman’s SW1, is launching a namesake collection.
Alvaro is a small men’s collection of calf leather sandals with straps dip-dyed in a palette that includes eggplant, deep sea blue and dark green. There are also leather belts and crocodile eyewear cases in similarly rich shades, made in workshops around Florence.
