Parisian designer Philippe Model launched his first collection of shoes and accessories in 1981. The addition of Italian designer Paolo Gambato has continued to grow the line to its current standing as a cult-maker of handmade Italian couture sneakers. The collaboration has manifested into bold washes of color and a rich combination of textures. Each shoe is hand cut of washed leathers and the soles are manually assembled. They are finished with a decadent leather and terry lining leaving your jaunts well-heeled in all regards. We delight in Model’s luxuriant rainbow vision.
