FW 2017

Ethnic nuances coming from China and Mongolia meet with rigorous influences from the Northeast Europe military world in a contrast of different styles, from the southwest urban more hippie style to the rigorous and clean underground rock, from smart city goers to the folk style of nomadic peoples wandering the wastelands of Siberia. The result is a Fall-Winter collection which, while it remains faithful to its urban and punk rock character, to classic structures and to DNA of A.S.98, proposes new geometrically minimal models but enhanced with precious details such as buckles, embroidery, padding and origami plays. Vegetable-tanned nubuck and suede leathers predominate. In addition to the typical oxide we present the new foulard leather, soft as a glove and in sharp contrast with the raw cowhide.

Classic sheepskin uppers are embellished with a rich and warm fur. Space is given to bright deep winter colors: from Chianti to strict military greens, from deep and mystical blue to foggy grays, from Choco and Buck earthen colors to wild colors like the Jungle. Laminated blacks with metallic nuances take on punch and elegant in true A.S.98 style. Geometric plate and snake textures animate the tone-on-tone shoes while the python print with its brilliant colors is mixed with the suede. Camouflage fabric with embossing effect are present in style with floral and damask velvets. Laser design on toes and heels is inspired by Maori tattoos and embellished with micro studs.
