The ARALDI for Spring/Summer 2017 is about true sophistication and functionality. Its four key collections – Jazz, Essenza, Skyline and Janus reflect a fresh take on blending both its four generations of experience in traditional craftsmanship and its commitment to continuously innovate and experiment. In keeping with ARALDI’s roots in the unconventional, the new collections are less about the one-season-wonders of fashion, though a fashion edge is here for the ARALDI customer who seeks it, but more about the personal style of familiar, favourite and eventually classic pieces: the gusset briefcase, soft briefcase, document holder, duffle bag, each made with the finest italian leather. These are the kinds of pieces in which design detail is king.
The JAZZ Collection was first seen as a preview in ARALDI for FW2016. Slim gusset constructions and neat top closures combine to create a smart, office-appropriate items that work as contemporary alternative to classic leather bags. This collection includes document holder, backpack, tote briefcase, tote, briefcases, and duffle bag. New materials are also introduced and designed to be as lightweight, durable and waterproof as possible.
The ESSENZA collection offers true business elegance and at the same time is designed for multiple day in the city. Crafted in a Vacchetta leather that offers a natural and raw colour with almost no visible metal fittings, it offers true sophistication. This collection includes briefcases, tote bag, messenger bag, slingpack and backpack.
SKYLINE is Araldi’s signature Tamponato (hand-finished) tanning revisited with new adjustable metal fastening top and side handles. The panelling is re-designed to match the soft structure and to give a more relaxing look to these leather pieces. Slim and elegant looking gun metal fittings are used to modernised this collection, matching perfectly with the new highly organic colours.
Of course, ARALDI wouldn’t be ARALDI without its Real Alligator Collection. The JANUS Collection along with its iconic alligator leather pieces are always the favorite. These are the pieces that best represent traditional craftsmanship and design experience. The new reversible padlock fastening allows it’s clientele to express his inverse side – palladium finish for a sleek and smart look and alligator skin coated for a more classic and sophisticated semblance.
Every collection is complemented with small leather goods of the same material combined with practical needs, quality, and timeless design. Classic and casual wallets available in different utilities – billfold wallet, credit card and business card holders, coat wallet. While the spirit of luxury travel carries in to the zipped organizers, passpost cover, and long wallets.
