Art blends with manufacture. Franceschetti paints his shoes like they were paintings. A new line of shoes, called “luxury handpainted”, is born; finely painted with brush applying more shades of color. It’s dedicated to the true handmade shoes collectors. The manual procedure adopted for the color of the leather makes each pair exclusive and unique. The making is typical of the corporate, having double leather sole and Blake Rapid stitching. Technically the leathers used are defined “crust”; natural color calves are carefully hand dyed with accuracy and craftsmanship.
From the union between Franceschetti’ shoes “luxury handpainted” and Piero Principi’s artwork rises a new art snapshot by the photographer Edoardo Catini (www.edoardocatini.com). The picture, from a private collection, is part of the series ” Lucidi Archetipi” and is entirely handmade with wood and oxidized metals. The shoes are finely painted and they belong to the range “Andrea Franceschetti limited edition”.
Range of colors for the Franceschetti “luxury handpainted” spring / summer collection 2013. The must-have is the finely handpainted moccasin with bright colors: blue, red and yellow. A creative snapshot by Edoardo Catini immortalizes the handpainted moccasins arranged like a sun hanging on to a whitewashed raw wooden background.
