Viewing Gidigio Fall 2013 in Milan, we asked Gidigio Owner/Designer
Giorgio D'Alessandro 6 questions on the Fall 2013 collection, must haves,
and hitting the slopes!
Name Giorgio D'Alessandro
Occupation Founder, Owner, Designer
Gidigio, and Giorgio D'Alessandro
No. 1 What's on your feet today?
Gidigio collections! Nothing looks or feels as
good as a shoe that takes 7 days to produce!
No. 2 How did you end up where you are today?
After working with my brother in the shoe industry for some time,
I turned my experience into the design and production of my own
line in 1996. Since then Gidigio has evolved into an ever evolving
line that looks to stay innovating, while honouring
the Made In Italy standard.
No. 3 Favourite shoe from the Fall 13 line?
I do love the R 3897. This is a mod angle boot on a beautiful
stacked leather heel. Done in a velour leather, this boot
has a bit of the 70s mixed with what's next.
No. 4 Fall 13 inspiration?
There is a saying that, "nothing is new". However, I do try to provide
vision into what is around the corner, while playing with some styling of
the past (like the boot above). So Fall 13 is a mix of old and new,
but...more new than old.
No. 5 Personal must have for Fall?
Gotten already...love the guy's Tubo motorcycle boot.
No. 6 Favourite place to hit the slopes?
Saas Fee, Switzerland. I have a little chalet there...very relaxing.
The town allows no cars inside the pedestrian zone...ah the tranquility.
