Unisa - Fashion Worldwide

Unisa was established in the 1970's as a small label that took inspiration from the relaxed Spanish lifestyle.

 

Over time they began hiring top designers from around the world who would, in accordance with their tastes and brand philosophy. keep the Unisa range looking fresh and mainstream.

High quality materials and excellent fit have always been the cornerstone of the Unisa brand and product.

 

It is a brand of significant international renown, being established over time by being on the mark with current commercial trends as well as ensuring that their styling and fit are of the highest standard.

 

Unisa stays true to the Spanish reputation with bold colours being carried on high quality leathers and suedes.

Felmini - Handmade with Passion

Felmini was established in Portugal in 1973, with their founders creating the brand on the core values of passion, integrity and beauty. For the past four decades, they have been contemplating the style of contemporary young women, with their team of creative designers, dreaming up the cutting edge of fashion trends. This enthusiasm can be seen in their ranges season after season and is a testament to the youthful mindset of the company.

 

The origins of Felmini go back to the days when they were solely leather producers. This ability to produce any type of vision they can dream up is one of the most exciting features of Felmini shoes and boots. They can create bold colours and textured effects which makes a product that stands out from the crowd. These are made even more special by the fact that all these processes are done by hand. This means that not only is the utmost care taken in the production of Felmini footwear, but that each pair of shoes is quite unique. This colourful, singular styling is important to everyone at Felmini, as they try to make footwear which give their wearer the same feeling of life and happiness that went into their creation.

 

            Felmini is not only about bright colours and fashion. They also seek out a variety of the best leathers and finishes, and ensure that all their materials and processes are of the finest quality and European safety standards. These exacting standards are combined with a mastery of their artisanal work as well as the latest technology to ensure that Felmini footwear is at once both modern and timeless.

 

            These days, Felmini is available in over thirty countries around the world, and they still hold true to those core values on which the brand was started. As well as this, the particular hand-treatment of Felmini boots and shoes as well as their registered multi coloured lining help to make them immediately recognisable – this all goes into making it a strong brand, which customers can know straight away and rely on.

   
Amalfi - The Italian Classic

it comes to making beautifulThere are no substitutes for experience and passion when  leather footwear, and the head of Italian manufacturing company Rangoni possesses them both.

 

Second generation artisan Niccolo has followed in father Ugo's footsteps by providing the world with his lovingly designed and manufactured quality women's shoes.

“In the fashion business, every season you start from scratch,” said Niccolo. “You are constantly creating a new product, a new look. Once you have that in the blood – it’s very difficult to give up.”

From humble beginnings working from home in 1937 to today's expensive six-storey factory, the home of Amalfi Shoes continues to represent traditional Italian craftsmanship.

Ugo was originally a leather salesman who, with nothing but a dream and sheer determination, created a company that is known worldwide for its style, elegance and impeccable service.

 

His philosophy was that shoes should be made using the best materials possible and his formula of quality plus comfort proved so popular that in the early 1940s they created the Amalfi line for American buyers, at the time becoming one of the first Italian designers to export to the United States. Within just a few years the company was producing shoes for designers such as Christian Dior.

 

Ugo's shoes were known for their casual elegance and comfort and in order to remain fashionable for all types of women, he created ranges with low and medium heels including the "T" strap, sales of which had surpassed one million pairs per year by 1973, the year Ugo died and left the company to then 18-year-old son Niccolo.

 

Continuing the legacy begun by his father is a labor of love for Niccolo who inherited the same passion for shoes and quality. "With each shoe in the Amalfi line, our designers seek a perfect marriage of quality and comfort,” said Niccolo. “That’s also why we continue to offer shoes in a full range of widths in an era when most manufacturers are scaling back. If the shoe fits, you’ll wear it. And Amalfi shoes are made to be worn."

Niccolo said his company's designers used cushion features in every Amalfi shoe, most of which are made using California construction or Sacchetto construction styles. "These true moccasin constructions mean each shoe is made from the inside out, with the upper and insoles of the shoe sewn together to form one piece.  The result is a shoe that’s as easy on the feet as it is on the eyes."

Since its inception in the 1930s, the Amalfi line has offered a full wardrobe of styles, from classic flats to cutting-edge fashions for the modern woman. What’s consistent across the line is their insistence on the finest of leathers and materials. Many of the finest tanneries in the world are located just miles from the Amalfi headquarters in Florence, Italy, and it’s from these that the leather for Amalfi shoes originates.

Despite such attention to detail and using only top quality materials, they are able to maintain competitive price points because of low overheads.

The company owns its own factories and employs its own staff which allows it to be hands on and in control of its quality and production.

Audley - Structured Elegance

Since 1988, Audley has been creating shoes where intellectual design meets quality and elegance.

 

This stimulus of philosophical design gives Audley the unique personality that is seen throughout it ranges. 

 

Tim and Fiona Slack have over 40 years experience in shoe design, and are the designers and co-founders of Audley. They provide the brand with its signature look and feel. 

 

Soft contoured styling counter pointed by Bauhaus architectural principles influence their ideas in shoe design. A technical understanding of fit and wearability are always in the mind of the designers. 

 

Audley shoes reflect the individuality of those who wear them, with a natural elegant feel.

TORRETTI RED

The secret is out. 

For the past few seasons, Torretti Red has quietly been sold through a select group of Australasian retailers. The impressive retail sales and positive feedback from the general public has established Torretti Red as a partner to its successful Italian master. 

While Torretti “Made in Italy” still maintains its signature styling, Torretti Red introduces a slightly younger, commercially priced product of extremely high quality. Torretti Red has carved its niche within the Torretti brand with Italian design and quality controls that are the envy of the industry. Combined with superior quality European and regional leathers, this successful formula is reflected in the sales growth of Torretti Red.

Torretti “Made in Italy” and Torretti Red are always evolving to incorporate the latest European trends, while maintaining their commercial appeal and fitting characteristics.
