The brand of sneakers, accessories and jewelery Il Centimetro is born from a challenge: to create something of cult, original in the world of fashion while remaining something handcrafted. Each Il Centimetro product is handmade with raw materials of the highest Italian quality, as are the Italian production processes that take place in the Marche region. Il Centimetro shoes, bags, bracelets are 100% Made in Italy. But why is it called "Il Centimetro"?
The concept starts from afar, or rather from the idea of travel. Any journey, from the one per day for example, can be conceptualized in consideration of measure, also material and metaphorical. Each of us travels and moves every day, enters into relationship with others and with reality, faces the distances that can separate or unite, overcomes boundaries, try to do it. Every time we set off on our journey, we start with ourselves first and inevitably walk the first centimeter of the road.
Hence the idea of using the classic yellow sartorial meter as a pattern for the brand, with its sequence of centimeters in evidence and that, for better or worse, we all saw in the mending basket of the mother or grandmother. A section of the tape measure becomes the graphic print of sneakers for him and her, but also of bracelets and small leather goods. In particular, in Il Centimetro sneakers the meter model is manually airbrushed on the outer surface of each shoe. Let's take one of the iconic models of the brand, the yellow sneakers with black print: the graphics of the black centimeters on a block yellow background is obviously crafted, but also fun and of character. The yellow sneakers by Il Centimetro are also available for woman.
Even the bottom of the shoes is made of extra light Ultrasoft material that guarantees cushioning stability to the foot. Another iconic product of the brand is Il Centimetro yellow leather bracelet with a black print of centimeters. The bracelet, made of genuine vegetable-tanned leather, is silk-screened to obtain the printing of numbers and lines. The magnetic closure is made of a metal alloy finished in aged brass. Copied both in Italy and abroad, the bracelet was made for the first time in Italy.
The originality of the brand and its philosophy is confirmed by the craftsmanship of the production: each pair of sneakers, each bracelet are handmade and, therefore, are unique pieces, each different from the others. Who is Il Centimetro intended for? To those who love the 100% Italian style and the high national craftsmanship, to those who are looking for a style that is out of the classical or predictable fashion canons, to those who recognize themselves in an ironic style but, perhaps above all, to call travel, with the mind and the body, one centimeter after the other.
