In 1981, the designer Philippe Model gives life to the brand that bears his name and whose productions are experiencing a growing success. Before founding his own label, the designer was a pattern maker for Maison Riva Marchesi and then for the famous Madame Paulette.His passion for accessories design began in fact from a young age, when designed his own hats, self-taught. His fashion label's first creation was in fact linked to the production of hats and gained enthusiastic allies in designers such as Mugler, Gaultier, Miyake and Montana. At the same time he launched his own range of gloves, bags and shoes.
Philippe Model's production nowadays only focuses on footwear. The designer's intuition was enlightening for the future of the brand. The sneakers are in fact nowadays considered as the most obvious statement of one's personality and lifestyle, helping to tell the story those who wear them. Based on this reflection, Model has created collections with a particular style, all seemingly worn out. Just like jeans, even shoes want to recount an experience.
The popularity of Philippe Model shoes is linked to the sophisticated taste of the models and craftsmanship that distinguishes the product. All production is carried out by a company from the Brenta Riviera (a renowned quality footwear production area). The shoe uppers brushing process takes place shoe by shoe, and the sole is assembled manually. The Philippe Model project is not only the result of Model's skill, but also of artistic confrontation with Paul Gambato, a renowned Italian designer.The result is a creative mix that blends the passionate Italian twist to the bonton French taste.
