Autumnal Accoutrements: a.testoni Shoes & Bags


Autumnal Accoutrements Atestoni Shoes Bags

Washed calf double buckle derby

This Fall, Italian heritage house a.testoni juxtaposes minimalism with baroque excess to brilliant effect. Take a look at some of the pieces that are way up on our holiday wishlist. For starters, we love the polished deep emerald hue of the calf derby, shown above, which comes with monkshoe-inspired double buckles and a gleaming ebony wooden heel. Wear this with a cream pullover and fitted grey trousers for an equestrian-inflected off-duty look.

Soft embossed calf Maxi Boston bag

If you’re going on a quick getaway, the dark chocolate Maxi Boston oversized weekender (above) is just right for stashing away your travel essentials—and you’ll look turn heads at the check-out counter, too, with the bag’s plush pebbled calf showing off a.testoni’s prowess in leather artisanship. 

Pair your Boston with smart-casual Oxfords in bi-colored smooth calf, lovingly and carefully welted and stitched for unbeatable comfort. We love the burnished shine of the beautiful pair shown below, which imbues it with a worn-in, heirloom-like sheen—fitting, given that these are timeless shoes you’ll treasure for a very long time indeed.
