2016-2017 F/W Men's Footwear Collection
Faithful to the distinctive Kiton code, the accessories universe is also inspired by the variegated world of color while showing a strong return of black. Deep fern green, burgundy, slate, dark brown and whisky are found throughout the collection. And so, for example, opaque or shiny French calf alternates with opaque or stone-treated crocodile, with pale notes on darker shades. Shiny black crocodile is used for evening shoes with colored silk grosgrain laces, and urban hiking sneakers have laces of chenille.
As in every season, an outerwear textile has been borrowed, in this case heavy hound’s-tooth check wool used for thick-soled lace-ups as well as ankle-boots. The same material is used for a set of bags – duffel, tote and backpack. The iconic Kiton driving shoe with K-shaped rubber sole and red dot is made of soft nabuk with fur inserts: a model as comfy as slippers. The metals used for the classic shoes are palladium and gold, while the belt buckles are in palladium, gold, pink gold and dark ruthenium.
