The Fragment Sandals are handmade in Milan, with 100% black calf suede.

“As we turned 5 this year, I wanted to create a capsule of three talismanic
shoes, with charms, jingling around the ankle as you travel on your escapades. Inspired by no other place than Dante’s homeland, I travelled to Milan, to meet a shoe factory who work with some of the giants of the industry.

I was met by Lorenzo, the owner of the family business, who was immediately open to the project. Each shoe is handmade with love, just as we create our Modern Heirlooms in Hatton Garden; 100% of the materials are sourced in Italy, within a 150 mile radius of the factory. The quality and durability of the leather was paramount to creating a forever piece. I dreamt of the ultimate minimal sandals, to wear with a power suit or a slip dress, and layers of necklaces.

The Fragment Shoe, inspired by Neapolitan mosaics, excavated from years gone by; The Wondering Traveller, with an asymmetrical anklet of amulets, hanging as though they were discovered on your journeys; The Initial Spark, the ultimate 90s mule, with an Alighieri spin.

Take the anklets off, and wear them as a bracelet, when you retire your shoes from the dance floor. We hope your heels bring you all good things on your midnight escapades.” - Rosh Mahtani

At Alighieri, we believe in creating forever heirlooms. These shoes are made by hand in Milan, Italy by our small, family-run manufacturer. The gold elements are carved by hand, then cast in bronze and plated in gold a stone's throw from our studio in Hatton Garden. The bronze used in this manufacturing process is fully recycled, with all excess metal going back into the cycle of creating tomorrow's forever piece. Each one is then hand-finished with care and love. Our similarly small and family-run caster has been our partner since the very inception of the brand - every step of our process is driven by human beings and their stories, from Dante to Rosh to our A-team... to you.

Your Alighieri order will be packed by hand, with love, and dispatched within 1-2 working days.
