Alessandro Oteri started designing to channel on a professional level a passion that naturally led him to study the most passionate of accessories. A native of Liguria, he initially worked for an important factory in Vigevano, having the chance to meet expert craftsmen and great masters and learn those techniques and secrets that inspired his first creations in 2004. Since the beginning, the basic idea was clear and precise, made of simple lines, directly evolving from tradition, through evocative color combinations, with openly contemporary materials and a recurrent reference to his native land, the Gulf of Tigullio. “Onda”, the brand symbolic pump, reproduces, on the side, the skyline traced by the Portofino promontory and, on the upper, the shape of the town iconic piazza, while the deep blue sole recalls the color of the sea.
Alessandro Oteri has always dedicated his collections to dynamic, sophisticated and self-confident women with a keen eye for beautiful things; women who look for the perfect balance between classic and contemporary style, tradition and innovation. The resulting line is Anthology: an annual collection, diversified season-by-season and constantly updated in terms of colors and suggestions. Today the Alessandro Oteri name symbolizes a philosophic comeback to an atelier-inspired elegance, his philosophy lying in the creation of a luxury product strongly influenced by excellent craftsmanship. A style dreamt by the couturier, reinstating the privilege of wearing unique and exclusive handmade and made-to-measure shoes.
