Where expertise and craftsmanship are more than a skill,
but an art form handed down from one generation to another
In the historic art town of Vigevano near Milan lies “Il MuseodellaCalzatura e dellaTecnicaCalzaturiera” simply referred to as the Shoe Museum. Its practical moniker does very little justice to what is housed in the museo’s hallowed halls dedicated to the history and art of shoemaking which can be traced since the 14th century. Here, curators have chronicled how footwear has evolved through the ages from mere functional pieces, to covetable icons of style.
It is this Italian devotion, not to mention their technique refined across the centuries as well as mastery of the craft that has given the country the incomparable reputation of being at the heart of traditional, intricately detailed, and luxurious shoemaking. Couple that with the Italian penchant for style and cutting-edge fashion, as well as the availability of the finest materials, and what you have, inevitably, are masterful works of art that are fit to adorn even the most discerning of feet.
It is within this magical, seductive world of artisans, rich leathers and patina that Private Collection’s elegant designs come to life – inspired by life in the sands and around the world, handcrafted by the masters.
