Have you ever wondered about saying goodbye to your usual routine, your conventions, your life? And packing just a few things, only the ones that can fit into a bag. And leaving. Destination: Route 66. Would you take a car? Of course not. You’d take a bike, wouldn’t you? Let us suggest an appropriate one. Choose one by Indian Motorcycle, America’s first motorcycle company.

The history of your maison. When was it born? Which are the most significant steps you made in the evolution of the tecnique and in your production? I started as boots collector. As fan, I went to U.S., in Texas, where I learnt the secrets of the making. A friend of mine saw I was wearing a pair of customised boots and he wanted them too. Then another friend, another one, and the word passed. My shoes are all produced with the attention for details both for Basic and made-to-measure lines. There are many manufacturing phases, but the one I love the most is the finishing. The creation technique changed radically: once the examples were Italian artisans; today I look to international craftsmanship. Heritage Factor. Is there any philosophy of “heritage” in your…

The history of your maison. When was it born? Which are the most significant steps you made in the evolution of the tecnique and in your production? We began in 1985 to launch our first bespoke service with very few customers. In 1992 our label was registered and a few years later we presented the first prêt-à-porter line. Since we came from bespoke shoe making we still - till today - have a single pair order production, which means any pair is made from the scratch, no ready or half made shoes. We start with cutting the calfskin. The Saint Crispin’s company in Brasov, Romania, employs 25 highly trained crafts people and has an output of approximately 1.500 pairs per year only. Our business model is based on the single pair order which…

royal palm hotel

Pure white and bright Pearl of the South, or intense and passionate red city? In Marrakech two identities and two colours live together harmoniously. It’s not a coincidence that the incredible domaine of the Royal Palm Hotel is located among these amazing buildings and Atlas Mountains crowns. Temple of Berber tradition with Western touches, as its 12 metres high hall shows, this majestic building can count on 135 suites and villas with Moorish details typical of the most beautiful mosques, more than tricks of lights made of nomad campsites and original decors. Like the stone floors, the Berber motifs on velvets and carpets, the bathrooms with imperial marble and touches of Fez’s Zellige, or glazed clay tiles. In one of the most favourite cities of the world, today like fifty…
