The Stefano Branchini brand represents the casual line, a comfortable line of shoes suitable for any situation. “As a fashion stylist and designer, the Stefano Branchini brand allows me to dare unique aesthetic interpretations, I mean, nothing to do with the classic tradition of the Norvegese and Oxford shoes”. My collections arise from my feelings and emotions perceived following trends and tendencies of everyday life: slender shapes, unusual chromatisms, uncommon combinations of materials. I would like to give our customers the opportunity to wear new stylish shoes, different from the luxury Branchini Calzoleria shoes, but provocative and charming as well”. “I need to provoke and promote a different and innovative structural concept of shoe, this is the aim of my creative work and I could not act or behave in any other way. The Stefano Branchini line is exactly that: presuming and daring, preserving the traditional characteristics of the Branchini product. Slender shapes harmoniously supported by traditional structures revisited. he Stefano Branchini shoes line is timeless, allowing the customer to find a shoe for every occasion”.
