(Carpe Diem)’s M_MORIA – Text by OG
When your creations have left a timeless fingerprint on fashion’s arena, even if from more than a decade ago, the door will always be open for your return. Carpe Diem’s founder Maurizio Altieri reappears with a unique footwear line: M_MORIA. Robust quality leathers he buried years earlier are transformed into unique vehicles for your foot made out of Horween cordovan by artisans in Italy.
The packaging in coated thick cardboard boxes is impressive; through its woody-leathery smell we could transport ourselves to the hilly atelier area near Perugia. When we met Mr.Altieri at the Trading Museum Comme des Garçons in Paris he refused editorials and advertising. Looking at his newest line it’s easy to see why – the pieces speak for themselves!
