MILAN — Accessories brands here emphasized craftsmanship, innovative treatments and embellishments with eye-catching details and colors, while staying true to their history and tradition. Comfort was a priority, as was exclusivity and luxurious materials.
Tod’s carefully crafted loafers were accented with geometric leather details and stitching in contrasting colors, such as a bright orange, which revved up the timeless design.
Santoni accented double monk-strap styles with fur and also introduced its first shearling bag.
In a clash between sartorial English dressing and punk rebellion, Jimmy Choo’s Sandra Choi jazzed up sneaker-shoe hybrids, edged with silvery or star-shaped studs.
Crystals in different shapes and sizes lit up Giuseppe Zanotti’s black evening slip-on, and rich brocade patterns with Twenties-inspired embellished elegant loafers.
Marking its 80th anniversary and presented in a pop-up store concept by Snarkitecture, Valextra presented an all-white collection, with furry details adding a touch of luxury.
Winking to the Fifties, Filippo Fiora and Filippo Cirulli at the Edhèn brand showed a collection of dress-up shoes that included a vintage looking double monk-strap loafer.
Church’s and Car Shoe, both controlled by the Prada Group, offered interesting variations of their staples — a strap-monk with ankle boot with a worn-in look, and a sneaker with a contrasting gommino sole in bright yellow.
Furla‘s colorful animal prints — from crocodiles to gorillas and sharks — ran along the sides of practical briefcases with the new closure translated from the brand’s successful Metropolis women’s bag.
Fratelli Rossetti’s sophisticated collection harked back to the Forties and, while understated, emphasized the brand’s storied craftsmanship in pieces such as the hand-painted crocodile moccasins with tassels.
