GREW UP IN THE FACTORY
This eponymous line of footwear was created by the young designer Elia Maurizi. He has used it to transpose his outlook, which is a blend of innovation, a predilection to details and old hand work. Always oriented to give the best quality and comfort.
Elia Maurizi shoes aren’t just footwear, they’re veritable designer objects, provocative works of art. Unisex lines for people who don’t label themselves-citizen of the world. His brilliance flows from the simple shapes and the use of highly sophisticated materials. Moreover, the handmade touch of a family run company that has always stood out on the market for its quality footwear, is undeniable.
With his first collection and as a rising star, Elia was selected by the “WHO’S ON NEXT” competition held by Alta Roma, Pitti Immagine and Vogue. As a result, in June 2009, he presented his new spring/summer collection at Pitti Immagine to leading journalist and buyers: the jury included Kostantin Andricopoulous (Bosco dei Ciliegi), Yasuto Kamoshita (United Arrow), Sarah Lerfel (Colette), Linda Loppa (Polimoda), Michele Lupi (GQ), Sarah Mower (Style.com), Franca Sozzani (Vogue Italia). Furthermore, on 25-28 September 2009 and to Who's on next, Elia Maurizi was guest of Vogue Talent.
