The island of Kyushu seems to be blessed with a number of talented shoemakers. Others include Yuki Shirahama, Yutaka Seikaku (Corno Blu) and Matsuda Akinobu (both who apprenticed under Roberto Ugolini). Shoji Kawaguchi (Marquess) also hails from Kyushu (though now in Tokyo)

I've lived in Fukuoka, but never got around to check out Yuki Shirahama. Have you seen his work in the flesh?

Yes, I`ve met Shirahama Bottier last year in Tokyo. Having apprenticed at Spigola and Altan (Paris), he offers a style that I think a lot of connoisseurs may find very pleasing. Like many of the better Japanese makers, Shirahama-san`s attention to detail is tremendous.

Here are some of the pics I took from my meeting with him.

on a separate note: Nakamura Tatsuya, Creative Director of BEAMS, caught on camera from the last trunk show (he ordered a pair).

Looks like he's been doing some patinating at Altan, yes. Not a huge fan of the heavy french layers of patina, but the shoes look great.

   the effect of 'oiled' cordovan seems to be a much richer, deeper color.

   how was it to work with & how does it age ?

Yes, very gorgeous, and very expensive shoes. The last time I checked, Tie Your Tie charges an upward of 577K JPY (5600 USD / 4140 EUR) per pair of Il Micio in Japan.

TYT Aoyama Boutique has a shelf full of Il Micio samples to gawk at, btw. Free of charge. smile.gif
