A strong sense of freedom, a relaxed attitude, and a neat self-confidence characterize Santoni’s latest spring/summer 2022 men’s collection.

Colors this season are inspired by the beauty of Santoni’s homeland in the Le Marche region of Italy. Among all, the loafers with a gradient nuance that passes through the tones of Morro to Argilla stand out. The standout of the season is Infinito, the elegant powder blue is used as a neutral shade, which accompanies the tones of Collina, Astrale, Terra Bruciata, Notte, and Terracotta browns.

New stitching and puffed details draw the profiles of loafers with a penny or double buckle, giving a neat and contemporary personality and enhancing the design. Loafers become soft, destructured: suede, nubuck, unlined calfskin are worked with special techniques and combined with light soles, in leather as well as in ultralight rubber. With the same concept, bags, backpacks, and small accessories acquire an effortless and relaxed appeal, accompanied by the use of refined materials and the modernity of the lines.

Light shades combined with a pictorial taste give the sneakers a tactile and sophisticated softness, and the use of canvas and play of perforations add lightness to these styles.

The Santoni Orange covers the entire collection with sophistication, connoting details, soles, seams, and profiles with its vibrant and recognizable touch.
