Fashion is everywhere in Italy, and while I never grew tired of it, I kept looking for that really distinctive shop that I couldn’t find in America. Fausto Santini was was that shop. A mens and womens handbag and shoe shop in Rome. The materials were used in new ways and the color combinations were uncommon. Thick strapped leather handles and shoes, fancy leather combined with so not fancy mesh, exaggerated zippers varying in size — it was all good!
Unfortunately, I don’t think you can purchase in the US. For now, their site is a great source of inspiration: www.faustosantini.it
