Natural colours that take their cue from those realized by the brothers Lorenzo and Jacopo Salimbeni for the extremely famous cycle of murals done in Urbino’s Oratory of St John the Baptist. fabi-fabi-natural-color-shoes-sneaker_2

Leading artists on the great panorama of Italian traditional artistry, the Salimbeni brothers are also considered prominent figures in Marches Renaissance painting, together with names of the calibre of Piero della Francesco and Raffaello Sanzio. Born in San Severino Marche in the province of Macerata, which is also the location of Fabi’s headquarters, the creations of the new collection are inspired by the colours used in the works of these artists.

All the iconic footwear of the Fabi Natural Color Shoes collection are coloured by hand dabbing with cotton and constructed following the dictates of the Flex Goodyear 102 patented method, while the sneakers are compact in their volumes and well-balanced with distinctive shapes, and clear and symmetrical cuts.
