Men's Spring-Summer 2017 Collection

Imagination of power: Alberto Guardiani Men's Spring-Summer 2017 Collection is inspired by surrealism, from which it draws a light-hearted, and a marked inclination towards beauty.

Thus, a collection of a dual personality takes shape, in which the traditional craftsmanship - that has always distinguished Alberto Guardiani creations - meets innovative solutions, surprising details, daring colours and hybrid functionality.

This is not a collection: it is an articulated wardrobe of footwear, designed for a demanding gentleman, who demands high quality, functionality and style from his accessories. These are not sneakers: they are crosscutting footwear that combine a sportive sole with a refined upper, to create a genuine passe-par-tout. This is not print: the decorations are composed of droplets and splashes of colour that recall the dripping of artists.

THE ALBERTO GUARDIANI STORY

  • 1947

    The company was founded in in the medieval town of Montegranaro (Ascoli Piceno),_an epicenter of fine shoe making. That’s the year when cousins Luigi e Dino Guardiani decided to open a small factory specializing in classic, quality shoes for men. The_move turned out to be a smart one and in a remarkably short amount of time they met with success.

  • 1972

    Alberto Guardiani, at age twenty, took over the running of the company. The transition of father to son occurred under the sign of continuity, for true to form artisanal rigor set the standards for the creation of shoes ever in sync with the latest styles, the up and coming trends. What motivated the industrialist to range beyond a classic product and cross the border into fashion footwear were an unfailing urge to experiment and a keen desire to think outside the box.

  • 1981

    The new direction, became definitive with the launch of the Alberto Guardiani brand, involved the sales aspect as well as the style factor. In particular, those were the years when the company embarked on a major expansion process by entering into new_markets around the world.

  • 1990's

    In the 90’s, Alberto Guardiani ensured his business a position of prominence by moving forward in step with luxury ready-to-wear and signing licensing_agreements with major Italian and international fashion houses. Gianfranco Ferré, Byblos and Jil Sander are among the labels that entrusted their shoe lines to the experience and expertise of this solid Montegranaro-based manufacturer. Within a few years, however, the company abandoned the license route in order to focus on the construction of its own brand image.

  • 2003

    Making the most of a personal talent for the early identification of new consumer trends, Alberto Guardiani launched his first unisex sport shoe on the market in 2003. A sneaker with G logo, it clearly met the needs of a modern lifestyle. Sales soon tripled, prompting the company to introduce the Guardiani Sport line. But the brand sport-fashion identity took hold in full only with the launch of the women's shoe line, for it emerged as the highlight element of the entire production and transformed the company into a major player of the Italian shoe industry.

    Today the Alberto Guardiani lines reflect the creativity of an expert in-house design team that works under the supervision of the man at the top. Skilled workers carefully craft the shoes while master bootmakers keep an eye on the process every step of the way. The hub of the company is still in Montegranaro, at the general headquarters_where factory workshops, sales offices, styling department and showroom are located.
