Dear friends, the incoming time will be remembered for a long time for many different reasons. The big crisis of global markets, which moved the centres of financial and economic power from old Europe to new Southeast Asian countries, doesn’t seem decreasing. However, some important signals highlight a clear turnaround. An example is the “reshoring” movement, with the homecoming of the highest sections of Made in Italy production, the absolute quality ones. At last, people understood the outsourcing of high range market isn’t an essential alternative anymore: also the emerging countries demand for more refined products, those manufactured by Italian artisan companies only.

a duke’s choice

Unlike other places in the world, which come to mind when people talk about male elegance and that clear out when boutiques close - such as Savile Row in London -, in via Gesù, Milan, there are inhabitants too: the Milanese middle class families that have lived here from generations, overlooking secret gardens, those charmed Stendhal. For their first boutique in Milan, after the Parisian one, Gianni and Jerry Giannini, Doucal’s (1973), second generation of men shoemaking artisans, chose via Gesù, heart of male Italian lifestyle. A small street, 270 metres only, between via Spiga and via Montenapoleone, the perfect destination for a man with little precious time to spend for his favourite delight, the most Italian male delight: doing shopping. Doucal’s boutique has a high class touch: vintage stone and wooden…

calzoleria rivolta

The history of Calzoleria Rivolta began in 1883 in via Gesù, Milan, where Enrico Rivolta opened the first atelier of handcrafted shoes with a refined excellence in the making and style. His son Franco moved the boutique in Via Verri carrying on the tradition described by Guido Vergani’s “The Fashion Dictionary": “The shape of Rivolta’s shoes gave every man’s foot a unique thinness, also to small and chubby feet”. Today Fabrizio Rivolta continues the family tradition in Via della Spiga looking to future. The made-to-measure is developed thanks to customised shapes by using a SYL (Sign your Last) System algorithm which takes morphological data of the foot and turns them into a 3D model, while a digital configurator let the choice of combinations and variations. Calzoleria Rivolta offers a selection of…
