PNP-firenze is proud to inform that will be one of the selected boutique worldwide to collaborate with the new A1923’ project, called PERSONALIZED.
Our online staff will help the customers to create their own pairs of shoes; starting from the choice of the leathers through to the creation of the color, that will be unique for each shoes.
A1923 presents a work boots in its essence. Constructed with the intention to be worn heavily, the work boot is welted by hand, using leather and thread that compliments its construction.
PERSONALIZED is being presented in order to create a dialogue between the maker, the shoes and the wearer. The latter is able to personalise his/hers/its shoes in every aspect, marking them with his/hers/its character and emotion.
Material: Through accumulative research A1923 presents Cordovan Oil and Kangaroo Oil for the first time, exclusively for PERSONALIZED by A1923.
Given its strong, yet supple texture, the Cordovan Oil immediately interacts and starts its conversation with the wearer that will continue to develop over time. Kangaroo Oil instantly feel soft and welcoming, and being able to enhance its texture and strong yet flexible nature with oils the potential of the Kangaroo will be shown through how the colors will age.
Sole: For the Buffalo, calf and white calf give different opportunities in terms of texture, color and fell while worn. Proposing different responses both visually and physically.
Color: Given its richness, the Cordovan Oil gives the possibility to elevate aspects of the leathers texture through color. The wearer is given 3 starting points in terms of color. Through interaction with the maker each and every pair will be worked on to realize the intention of the dialogue. The same amount of options is given to the color of the sole. Beginning the PERSONALIZED project, black, purple and yellow will be available, and different layering of these will be possible.
The goal of the interaction between the maker and wearer should be the opportunity to mark the PERSONALIZED pair of A1923 to show it belongs to the wearer. PERSONALIZED by A1923 initiates a stronger connection between the shoe and the wearer, hoping their relation will continue to develop through time.
