Meet The Most Stylish Man In The Room

May 18, 2014

On shoe making…

When making the perfect shoe, there are some important factors: they must be made of materials of extraordinary quality and should be created as a product of dedicated research and design innovation.

On Hogan’s new collection…

The new Spring/Summer collection is clean and refined, and perfectly captures Hogan’s sense of understated elegance. Our favourite shoes – the H222 – are a distinct example of our ‘easy chic’ philosophy.

On collaborating with designer Karl Lagerfeld…

Karl is an outstanding talent. His creative genius was just perfect to re-interpret Hogan’s iconic pieces such as the interactive shoe. It has been a very satisfying four-season collaboration.

On who wears Hogan…

Our customers are fashion conscious but not fashion obsessed. They cherish the practicalities of life whilst appreciating the value of quality and time. What we do well is that contemporary sense of distressed elegance, and that is why it is a so popular with celebrities. [gallery link="none" ids="1710,1711,1712,1713,1714"]

On the family business…

The TOD’s group was set up by my grandfather, and has always been a family business. The best advice that my parents gave to me was to remember to preserve our Italian heritage, to always be coherent and to respect everybody’s work.

On spare time…

I don’t have much time out of work, but when I do, I try to keep some good quality time dedicated to my family. My brother and I own the football team ACF Fiorentina, so we watch a lot of football. The interesting thing about fashion and football is that they both require high levels of method, know how and discipline.

On first impressions…

While I won’t say that shoes are the first thing I notice when I meet someone, let’s say that they are not the last thing I notice either! A pair of shoes can tell you all about someone’s personality.

On taking risks…

While I wouldn’t say that I purposely take risks, I admit that I prefer to trust my instincts, which sometimes can be a bit risky.

On the modern man…

In today’s world a man needs to have a solid set of principles, a contemporary approach to life and, of course, a pair of Hogan shoes in his closet. Details: The new S/S14 collection is available from Hogan stores region wide. For more visit hogan.com
