The Alberto Guardiani collection is inspired by the impeccable university team uniforms and by the exciting space missions of Eileen Collins, the first woman who commanded and piloted the Space Shuttle.
The astronaut chooses her daily uniform with an elegance combined with freshness and modernity.
Futuristic and lunar atmospheres blend with the collegiate world, breathing life into a collection that looks toward the future, due to a combination of techniques and materials that are the result of careful stylistic research.
The functionality of the shapes is expertly combined with the leather cutting, the craftsmanship in construction, and the colour gradations.
Materials such as suede and patent leather, refined "crown" inlays, and the closures typical of more stylized uniforms, are combined with innovative gold-laminated leathers and with the application of small golden cages on the toes of the pumps and ankle boots.
The patent leather uppers show toes with a special nuance that can take on the space colours of blue, silver and gold that suggest the tones of a futuristic galaxy.
The heels and their heights are the main players like the Luly style, where the stiletto heel varies from 50, to 70 and up to 100 mm. The space shoe runs the gamut of variations: perhaps a pump or an ankle boot in patent leather, with details in golden laminated calfskin that form an arrow shape at the toe, which is also in black suede with a calfskin leather toe.
Styles stand out in black buffed abrasivato calfskin leather with an elegant detail in the shape of a golden metal medallion or with a front buckle, which suggests the frog closures on uniforms. A stand-out, among all of these versions, is the silver laminate calfskin leather that has a small gilded cage application on the toe, which resembles the silhouette of a space capsule that has been launched on a journey into the future.
