For its Fall/Winter 2017-18 collection, the Philippe Model brand has chosen to design precious creations. The solid-color leather has a metallic or glittery aspect and is available in winter colors ranging from midnight blue to gold and silver. Ornaments, which made the label’s reputation, are also present in this winter line, with birds and flowers. Poetic, stylish and comfortable: these are the sneakers we were missing. Discover the Philippe Model shoes available on the MONNIER Frères website.
Philippe Model founded his eponymous fashion label in 1978. The designer quickly met with success with his original creations. He released his first iconic shoes in 1982, but his designer sneakers only became a hit much later. In 2008, the French designer met Paolo Gambato while visiting artisans in Italy. The two men immediately got along well and the idea of designing exclusive sneakers, combining innovation and traditional Italian artisanship, quickly emerged. The brand’s vision is not limited to high-end sneakers with a creative design. Their shoes must also be comfortable. The materials, the cut and the sole are based on detailed analyzes and specific parameters in order to guarantee unconditional comfort.
Paolo Gambato was born near Venice in 1960 and grew up in the heart of the Italian luxury shoe industry, the Riviera del Brenta. He became interested in design from an early age and learned tailoring techniques when he was only a teenager. Since he met Philippe Model in 2008, the creative director has focused on designing sneakers respecting the craftsmanship legacy combined with a modern, appealing and creative vision of luxury footwear.
