Among the selection of Pitti 97 there is also D.A.T.E., a brand specialized in handmade sneakers born in 2005 in a London garage.
The acronym of the name is given by the initials of the young founders, who by combining the skills and savoir-faire of their different academic and professional backgrounds, have given way to a project that has proved to be a real success in the panorama.
The new collection presented at Pitti is called “new vintage“: contemporary design and important volumes, together with meticulous research of materials, mixes with a vintage character, with warm colors and contrasting touches.
The protagonist, together with the original HILL basic, is the FUGA model. Materials and colors mix without shame, creating impactful sneakers that do not go unnoticed: Made in Italy leathers combined with technical fabrics and the colors range from ocher to taupe, from burgundy to turquoise and the classic black and white. Characteristic is the voluminous but super-light sole in “blowtech gum“.
At the D.A.T.E. there have been many innovations, including some previews of the FW21 sneakers such as the PLANET, combined with a collection of sweatshirts: another Made in Italy project that uses eco-sustainable and recycled materials, whose goal is respect for the environment and person.
