Japan Meets Italy In "SEISHOU", New Luxury Shoe Line By Ikeda & Matsuzaki For Fratelli Borgi
The New Line Combines Italian Craftsmanship With Japanese Style
By: Farrelly-Caizzone & Associates
The name of the collection, SEISHOU (or "unison" in English) originates from the blend of Italian craftsmanship and Japanese taste.
Japanese shoe designers Ikeda & Matsuzaki have collaborated with global luxury leading shoe brands in their long career before proposing, in October 2019, a collaboration with Fratelli Borgioli, attracted by the high level of manufacturing of the Borgioli shoes.
All the SEISHOU shoes, which combine the comfort of a sneaker with the elegance of a formal shoe, are made with complex techniques that very few shoe factories nowadays still apply.
SEISHOU shoes are available online at www.fratelliborgioli.com/
"Fratelli Borgioli have always had both a deep bond with tradition and an eye towards innovation and the future." says Urbano Borgioli, CEO at Fratelli Borgioli. "SEISHOU fully reflects our high quality craftsmanship and tradition, while also allowing us to diversify our production for an international scope."
Updates and information on the collection will be posted on Fratelli Borgioli's dedicated page fratelliborgioli.com/
