New Scarpe di Bianco at Pitti Uomo 87
Another brand that I always enjoy visiting while I am at Pitti Uomo is Scarpe di Bianco. Apart from enjoying a nice catch up with owner William White, I know that I can always count on them to have new interesting and cool models, such as most of these in the pictures. William does exactly what I would love to do if funds were more available and that is to simply make tons and tons of models/samples. But that is an addictive and slippery slope and making them is not free, so one has to control himself. But with SDB I am always impressed with the amount of new stuff they create, and new stuff that is cool and unique, such as this grained derby with fringe above, let alone the rest of them. Great stuff as always and happy to see them going strong!
On another note, I am relocating the business back to Mayfair (at Timothy Everest’s shop on Bruton Place) and am looking for office space (circa 300-500 sq ft) in/around Berkeley Square (or surrounding areas). If anyone has/knows of something available, I would surely appreciate a referral. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if so. Thank you!
