In the spirit of shoemaker Alberto Guardiani’s own bold designs, the Italian brand has partnered with Central Saint Martins’ Amanda Montenovo on limited edition cut-out heel, contrasting color styles for the young designer’s thesis collection. The ’70s-inspired shoes follow a previous team-up with Milan’s infamous Marangoni Institute in which Alberto Guardiani charged media students to devise real-world business briefs to story-tell fashion projects across digital and offline channels. Both initiatives actualize the footwear brand’s emphasis on ideation and fashion’s next wave of talent.
