With all the buzz around this new direction in the fashion industry towards active-inspired looks and move toward functionality, we felt compelled to share a brand that represents this concept beautifully.
Serafini dates back to 1885, when it opened its first studio in Florence, Italy. With a focus on high quality leathers and expert handcraft, the brand has been passed down from generation to generation, keeping up the historic family tradition as well as launching its collections internationally in Europe and Asia.
Fast-forward to current times, Fabrizio Serafini (4th generation and avid sneaker collector) is at the helm as Creative Director, and is responsible for the birth of Serafini Sport, their newest division with a precise concept: Italian tradition, artigianal manufacturing and modern styling.
Stylesight had a preview of their F/W 12 collection at Micam, and below are our top picks. Impeccable quality and exquisite leathers are what made us fall in love with the line and we look forward to wearing our pair stateside come fall. -Jenn Tello
