Angelo Ruggeri, collection and design director, mixed a cocktail of classic shapes and quirky details for fall. Slip-ons made from brushed leather had twisted, asymmetrical monk straps or magnified tassels, while loafers came with brogueing and chunky soles with treads inspired by galoshes. “You can be elegant, even when it snows,” Ruggeri reasoned during a walk-through.
Chelsea boots were made from a jaunty patchwork of three colors – black, Bordeaux and brown. “Men nowadays like to combine tradition and innovation – and they feel a little more free to express themselves without fear of being seen as too feminine,”added the designer.
