Exquisite craftsmanship and a quest for elegance, the endearing values of Santoni, are ever-present in its Fall-Winter 2018-19 collection. The message: “true beauty is not ephemeral; it must be discovered and appreciated, taking the time to do so. Like the Santoni shoes, timeless classics whose beauty goes beyond appearance, because it is truly appreciated only during the use.“
Archetypes such as the Texan boot, desert boot, mountain boot, deck shoe, the lace-up and the derby get a new interpretation with materials, proportions and the way they are treated. Lines are bold. The double monkstrap, a Santoni pillar, gains a thick sole and a pragmatic allure. Sums of leathers give character to the lace-up ankle boot.
The more formal styles are characterised by tapered lines and an idea of extreme refinement of detail: oversized buckles, fringes and surprising textures.
The colour palette is classic and timeless: black, brown, green. Materials are precious to the touch: soft suede, elk, deer, micro print calf, reptile prints, wet effects.
