Lamperti Milano was started in Milan by sister-brother duo Erika and Federico Lampert in 2014. The Lampertis wants to create shoes that are unique and one of the ways they do this is by focusing on R&D. Each shoe is created in the Italian towns of Parabiago and Porto Sant’Elpidio by using traditional artisan techniques with the finest materials.
Erika is the designer for the label and before starting Lamperti Milano worked in the Finance industry for two years. Ms. Lamperti also has a Bachelor degree from Bocconi University and a Masters in Management from the University of Buckingham. While covering the luxury sector Erika’s love of fashion grew and she decided to also take fashion classes at Central Saint Martins to help with the start of her company.
The inspiration for the Lamperti Milano Fall 2017 collection comes from Cao Xueqin’s novel Dream of the Red Chamber, one of the Four Great Classical Novels of Chinese literature. When designing the collection the label used fabrics with Chinese inspired designs from the Qing dynasty and silhouettes inspired by that period as well.
If you are looking for shoes that are unique and dramatic then you cannot go wrong with a pair from Lamperti Milano.
