This Contemporary Collection of International Character Combines Angelo Inglese's Fashion Ideas With Seishou's Shoes Refinement
Milan, Italy - Angelo Inglese and Seishou present the exclusive #Pitti102 capsule collection on June 15 and 16 at the Savoy Hotel in Florence.
It will be presented by the authors themselves: Japanese shoe designer Yuko Matsuzaki, who has been collaborating with historic luxury houses for more than 40 years, and VIP tailor - and Apulian entrepreneur Angelo Inglese.
The idea for the joint capsule collection stems from the historic friendship between the two designers and the desire to combine Angelo Inglese's evolving vision of fashion with Seishou, a fusion of Japanese design and Italian craftsmanship.
"The capsule includes pairings between selected pieces from my new line and Seishou's shoes. The new line brings together reflections related to different interpretations of fashion throughout my life." says Angelo Inglese. "The result is a contemporary line that matches well with the modern character typical of Japanese design."
Seishou, a brand founded in Tokyo by Japanese shoe designers Ikeda & Matsuzaki, means "unison" in Italian.
Ikeda & Matsuzaki's line of shoes, designed in Japan and made entirely by Italian artisans, combines the typical design and comfort of a sneaker with the elegance of a formal shoe.
"Seishou and Angelo Inglese combine the concept of “new classic” - tradition with innovative elements, while maintaining a good balance between classical and contemporary, core values in which both brands believe." - says Yuko Matsuzaki, Shoe Designer at Ikeda & Matsuzaki. "The union with Angelo Inglese represents a new source of inspiration for Seishou, which is realized in the new capsule collection. It is a chance to introduce the new generation to the 'nostalgia' of classic models revisited and made more akin to their tastes."
The capsule collection will be available for preview sale at the Hotel Savoy at Piazza della Repubblica 7 in Florence on June 15 and 16, 2022, starting at 10 a.m., and then online at Angelo Inglese's new website, which will be launched in late June 2022.
