Talking about Japanese shoemakers taking off to the world,
Our good buddy Atsushi Qnai0-san, aka IL QUADRIFOGLIO
, will be having his first HONG KONG Trunk Show, along with a very very talented tailor SARTORIA KAVUTO
(formerly at Liverano & Liverano)
March 11 ~ March 13
@ KOWLOON SHANGRI-LA HOTEL
By Appointment Only
I plan to be at the event to assist the two gentlemen, so I hope to see some SF members in Hong Kong!!!!
Contact me (PM)
Both Qnai-san and Kabuto-san are prominently featured in the RAKE JAPAN MAGAZINE
as the rising stars of Florentine-Japanese styles.SARTORIA KAVUTO
: Kabuto-san, IMO, is well worth checking out. His style is heavily rooted in the Florentine tradition (he spent 12 years in Florence, 7 yrs apprenticing at Liverano), added to the now-typical Japanese meticulousness (I read he does button holes like no one else in the world). He used to have an atelier in Florence, now moved back to Japan. Fully hand stitched at his tiny atelier at the Ishiwaka prefecture.
