”The year 1866 was signalised by a remarkable incident, a mysterious and puzzling phenomenon, which doubtless no one has yet forgotten. Not to mention rumours which agitated the maritime population and excited the public mind, even in the interior of continents, seafaring men were particularly excited. Merchants, common sailors, captains of vessels, skippers, both of Europe and America, naval officers of all countries, and the Governments of several States on the two continents, were deeply interested in the matter”. (Jules Verne, ”Twenty Thousand Leagues Under The Seas”)
[„Sir,” said Captain Nemo, showing me the instruments hanging on the walls of his room, „here are the contrivances required for the navigation of the Nautilus.
Yacht 3 uomo High-top
What makes the Yacht shoes series special? Elegance, comfort, style and sporty nature. In my projects similar to Ferretti ( for example, flubridge segment) I’m using the appropriate practical innovative solutions and high quality materials. The Italian norm finish guarantees felling of the luxury.
New model in the Yacht series marked 3 with a strong character.
Aspide – bag with replaceable refills
Molt or moult – shedding the skin (scales) by snake is very practical and is not affiliated with the growing but simply with wearing off and health-it helps get rid of parasites. Before shedding, the outer layer of skin becomes dull and dry looking and, on the eyes, brilles (ocular scales) become cloudy and blue-coloured. The mature snake may shed its old skin once or twice a year but the younger snake, still growing, may shed up to four times a year.
An impressive solid durable bag, and moreover, with replaceable refills. Bag’s main element (unit) and carrier is the basket form made from flexible and soft-touch plastic.
Green Lizard uomo High-top and Low-top
Lacerta Viridis – it is large lizard (to 40 cm) distributed across Europe: Turkey, southern coast of Black Sea, Greece, Albania, Slovenia… Once it could be found also in the southern Poland. It feeds mainly on insects but doesn’t despise (larger specimens) snakes or small lizards.
Green lizard on the rock – that view inspired me to design those shoes.
Muraena Helena – The most common moray in the Mediterranean Sea. Picks hot shallow waters on the coral reefs. Hides in cavities and clefts between rocks from which it pulls out only head and in this way hunts the prey.
I present the following models constantly inspired by Ferretti Group yachts and boats
Madre – the Patroness Handbag
Most of the spiders have four pairs of eyes. Each pair is responsible for a different perception. Jumping spiders (Salticidae) definitely have the best vision as shown by their huge round eyes particularly anterior median eyes.
Spiders inspire and terrify. For some disgusting, for others beautiful. They are deadly but also caring – female spider, mother caring like any other.
Cicoria donna High-top
There are two cultivated species of Cichorium: First – high bushy with bitter taste called chicory. Its young leaves, radicchio, have to be cooked. Delicious with fried saudage and roasted roll. Second – low and thick (cicoria asparago, Puntarelle). Good for a salad green with garlic and salted anchovy. If we are talking about ancient Cichorium that regards to the first one (Cichorium Intybus de Campus).
Another model in the Yacht series. This time definitely dedicated to Ladies.
Strongly raised sole stands the worst urban weather.
Rinoceronte – from rhinoceros to handbag
Diceros bicornis (black rhinoceros or hook-lipped rhinoceros) – is a species of rhinoceros classified as critically endangered and even in few African countries extinct: Chad, Cameroon, Rwanda and Ethiopia. For last 95 years the population of these beautiful animals was severely reduced from about 100 thousands to the number dipped below 2500 representatives. Fortunately since four years it has been growing.
Looking for an inspiration I never know with what it will end and that is the most enjoyable in designing. In the case of this handbag it was black rhinoceros also called hook-lipped rhino or common.
Yacht 2 High-top
Ferretti in its DNA has a vocation to the research,the innovation and the creation of a design’s perfect harmony in order to provide the maximum of functionality and ergonomics.
It’s time for the higher shoes. Continuing the series inspired by Ferretti Yachts I decided on a „large capacity” sporty stylisation.
