Italy has always been associated with fashion. There are a lot famous designers who were born in Italy, Giorgio Armani, Sergio Rossi, Versace, Salvatore Ferragamo and Roberto Cavalli to name a few. Italy is also the home of huge fashion houses and clothing companies like Gucci, Prada, Brioni, Kiton, Sarmi, Blumarine, Valentino, Dolce & Gabbana and Tod’s.
It’s no wonder that people would hold in high regard Italian made clothes, bags, shoes and accessories and would prefer them than any other local brand. Italian products have been associated with class, quality and excellent craftsmanship.
It is said that Italy began to be a bastion of the fashion world when a certain Giorgini put on a fashion show in his Palace in Florence way back in 1951. And according to some accounts, his first show was such a hit that he decided to stage some more. His models and audience were said to be from the ranks of French nobility. Whether or not these early beginnings of Italian fashion were true, what is certain is that Milan became a hub of activities for the fashion world.
The industrial revolution in Italy brought about more changes to the local fashion scene. Throughout this time Milan had been experiencing a growth in fashion, design and style. During the 1970s and 1980s, Milan was considered by many as the fashion capital of Italy. Some people even went too far as to declaring Milan as the Fashion Capital of the world. This is without basis, of course. This was the period of rapid fashion growth where Italian products began to be known worldwide as an epitome of quality and high fashion. In particular, Italian leather products like leather handbags, wallets and shoes were considered the best among the best.
This perception remains true up to this day. When we talk, for example of, men designer Italian shoes we know for sure that were talking about elegant, classy, comfortable and fashionable pairs of shoes. These shoes are not your regular run-in-the-mill generic branded shoes. These are Pradas and Guccis and Armanis, well you get the idea. So whether you’re going to use them for spring, or for the winter, Italian designer shoes will get you there.
Most of the branded shoes are good enough to be worn on any occasion may it be for a date, a business meeting, an interview, a casual party or even a diplomatic dinner. You won’t be embarrassed nor would you feel insecure. If the rich and powerful flaunts their shining jewelries, soft silk dress and expensive tie and suits, there’s no need to worry, you’ll always have your authentic Italian shoes.
