Moreschi, a trip to AntarcticaThe destination of legendary expeditions, which has been the stuff of dreams for travellers from every epic, sees the colours and atmospheres of Antarctica inspire the Moreschi Men’s Fall/Winter 2018-19 collection. For women, a style that is a contamination of masculine-inspired influences and feminine allure.
The Vigevano luxury footwear brand speaks to us of destinations that have been a timeless source of fascination for travellers from every era. Thus, we find ourselves in Antarctica, which re-proposes polar nuances in the new collection’s palette: sky blue, shades of blue taken from the great ocean, the greys of majestic icebergs, along with a range of brown tones. A journey among new materials, new matchings and shapes, for a style that merges reportage with the art of handcrafting, where every model is the perfect synthesis of materials, talent, and emotions.
Among the cult pieces of the collection is the simple, yet sophisticated, slip-on, the smart-casual sneaker with double buckle, the traditional combat boot, and the legendary trappeur in elegant and sophisticated Cavallino leather. Suede and sheepskin are used to create a high-spirited sneaker with boxed sole, an unusual penny loafer moccasin, and a soft, plush driver. The camouflage snow version uses a contemporary twist in slip-ons, drivers, and sneakers, with bold shapes for combat boots with grip-fast soles, which are aggressive in their look, but light in spirit.
Women’s shoes, instead, play around with elements from the men’s wardrobe, adding a personal and feminine touch. For her, a “men’s-styled” shoe refined by a charming touch, Chelsea boots and iconic Oxfords decorated with metallic studs and featuring appliqués on the toes, as a throwback to the broguing technique typical of the men’s tradition, conveying a “rock” mood to the style.
Moccasins with a leather sole are a ‘must’ in the héritage line, underlining the art of craft workmanship in versions with fringes and tassels, sophisticated tone-on-tone plays, matchings of different leathers, and personalised accessories. In other words, a perfect match between the His and Hers wardrobes.
