Fantasy as a Shoe
As in the times of the Dolce Vita, inside the atelier they still take measurements of the foot, choose the hides, applications and models and after about a month of work you are presented with a new pair of Albanese made-to-measure shoes.
Shoe jewellery, made by hand, from a generous range of models and versions, often fanciful and irresistible. Just as in the creations of unique design which, since 1925, have made Albanese an historic brand of Made in Rome; models with heels including a compass, a clock in pure gold, a hula-hoop heel, to name but a few.
Albanese is featured in The Women's Tailor-made Guidebook – Rome.

Design for Peace presents at Made in Town its first collection of decorative objects and fashion accessories: Transhumance.
