SUTOR MANTELLASSI AT PITTI UOMO WITH THE “ALPINE LUXURY” COLLECTION AND AN EXCLUSIVE COLLABORATION WITH SCOTT SCHUMAN
The Autumn / Winter 2016-17 Sutor Mantellassi collection is inspired by the Alpine architecture in Cortina D’Ampezzo and in the Cadore region designed by Edoardo Gellner during the years of the Dolce Vita. Clean ambiances, minimalist yet majestic lines, as if a tribute to nature and the surrounding mountains.
Alpine landscapes, autumnal colours, bright patches of sunlight on the imposing rock faces of the Dolomites, welcoming and luxurious interiors, are translated into sophisticated and exclusive products, true to the Sutor Mantellassi tradition.
The models include traditional formal Norwegian-welted shoes, ankle boots, boots, cosy slippers and sporty trainers. The materials include calf leather, exotic materials and tweed, which echoes the furnishing textiles of mountain chalets.
The palette of colours is inspired by autumn, ranging from red brown to purple red, from cilantro green to aubergine, including ochre.
For Autumn / Winter 2016-17, the collaboration with Scott Schuman is developed further and gives rise to its own mini collection. A capsule that starts from the classical shapes of Sutor Mantellassi, reinterpreted in modern key in its colours, leathers and finishings.
