Seishou

Designed by Ikeda & Matsuzaki for Fratelli Borgioli

A combination between Italian craftsmanship and Japanese taste.

SEISHOU is a new line of shoes designed by Ikeda & Matsuzaki for Fratelli Borgioli.

The name of the collection, SEISHOU (or unison in English) originates from the combination of Italian craftsmanship and Japanese taste.

 

 

Japanese shoe designers Ikeda & Matsuzaki have collaborated with global luxury leading shoe brands in their long career before proposing, in October 2019, a collaboration with Fratelli Borgioli, attracted by the high level of manufacturing of the Borgioli shoes.

All the SEISHOU shoes are made with complex techniques that very few shoe factories nowadays still apply, such as the sole milled on the last, the Blake processing with hidden channel and the use of natural materials.

“SEISHOU is a hybrid collection that mixes a classic design with a modern style.

Japanese concept and design are expressed with the craftsmanship of Italian shoes.

The design incorporates the concept of authentic Italian footwear and the taste that reflects the modern Japanese lifestyle.”

The collaboration between Ikeda & Matsuzaki and Fratelli Borgioli has led to five versatile models, which all combine the comfort of a sneaker with the elegance of a formal shoe.
