Casadei was founded in 1958,in a small workshop in San Mauro Pascoli, where Quinto and Flora Casadei created the first collection of sandals designed for tourists holidaying on the Italian Riviera.
It was the time of the economic boom and the “Made-in-Italy” miracle. In just ten years, the workshop was transformed into a small, highly specialized footwear business which exported its products to Germany and the USA.
During the Seventies, its growth continued with the first advertising campaigns, exports to Japan and the opening, in 1977, of its first single-brand store in Brussels. The Eighties, instead, saw consolidation of the brand on international markets including, first and foremost, the Middle East.
The new generation: 1994
1994 was the most difficult yet important year: it represented a passage of rite between one generation and the next when Cesare Cadei, Quinto and Flora’ son, joined the company as its creative director. Cesare’s strength was his all-round vision of the company, thanks to know-how acquired on-site which he experienced first-hand from production to marketing right up to creativity. Cesare was the link between two worlds: on the one the hand, the pioneers of “Made-in-Italy” craftsmanship and, on the other, the managers and designers whose task it was to promote the image of the brand on an international level.
In the year two thousand, Casadei decided to consolidate his roots of high-class artisan tradition: skins, colours and styles were created on an exclusive basis using dedicated suppliers. The footwear industrialization process subsequently became a jewel of craftsmanship, a heritage that it was impossible to imitate. At the same time, he continued with the modernization of distribution and communication. In 2002, the Milanese showroom relocated to Via dell'Annunciata, where, following a recent restyling operation, it is still headquartered today. Sales continued to increase, followed by the opening of a series of single-brand boutiques.
During these years, international celebrities were photographed wearing Casadei creations on their feet, thus consolidating the brand in the eyes of the fashion system. At the same time, the best-known talents of photography, including names of the calibre of Nick Knight, Mario Testino, Javier Vallhonrat and Raymond Meier, were chosen to shoot the company’s advertising campaigns. In 2008, Ellen von Unwerth, was commissioned to commemorate the brand’s 50-year-old history with a book and an exhibition that trace all the moments that made this miracle of style possible.
Developments and the future
With 21 flagship stores, Casadei prepares corners in La Rinascente Milan and Rome and boutiques in Shanghai and Moscow.

and travel bag collection in Paisley jacquard fabric, which, thanks to its special resin finish,
was to become a symbol of pure elegance.

Mario Valentino Company was founded by the fashion designer Mario Valentino in 1952 in
Naples, where is still today the head office. The company works with its own Trademark in
leather goods world, producing footwear, accessories and clothes.
The first shoes bringing the Trademark Valentino were made in the early 20th century in
Naples by Mario’s father, Vincenzo Valentino, who had been considered the best craftsman in
the world, since the beginning of his valued work. Even King Vittorio Emanuele ordered some
shoes to him. In his small factory in Naples, he created wonderful made to measure shoes:
light, elegant, demanded and very expensive.
In fashion anthologies Mario Valentino is remembered as the creator of the legendary stiletto
heel and of the common woman moccasin.
He was also the creator of the precious coral sandal, still exhibited at the Bally Shoe Museum
in Schoenenwerd (Switzerland). The preciousness of this shoe gave him the first editorial on
Vogue France in 1956 and allowed the company to sign a contract with I.Miller in New York,
the only one overseas company, which imported luxury shoes at that time and distributed
them in the USA.
The founder of Mario Valentino Company was deeply keen on art and considered fashion as
a similar and permeable world. Many artists such as Warhol, Pomodoro and Rauschenberg
appreciated and shared this concept.
In 1956 the factory was built in Naples, in one of the oldest quarters of the city.
In the seventies and eighties top models, such as Veruska and Naomi Campbell help the
trademark to be successful and photographers as Robert Mapplethorpe, Guy Bourdin and
Helmut Newton showed Mario Valentino design philosophy as a real form of art.

throughout the years, the brand has made use of the contribution of prominent designers of
the fashion industry.

Crespi, Maria Callas, Liz Taylor, Catherine Deneuve, Catherine Spaak, Monica Vitti, Ornella
Vanoni, Ilaria Occhini, Laura Efrikian, Stefania Sandrelli and Marcello Mastroianni.

Moncler is an abbreviation of Monestier-de-Clermont, the name of the mountain village near Grenoble where the brand was first established in 1952. Right from the outset, the brand has combined ongoing technological research with the expertise of mountaineering professionals.
In 1954 it produced the first real puffer jackets suitable for more extreme climates. Over the course of a decade, these were gradually perfected and they went on to play a starring role in major French and Italian expeditions which conquered the summit of Makalù to peaks in Alaska and the world’s second-highest summit, Karakorum. Moncler was definitively consecrated on the international stage at the Winter Olympics held in Grenoble in 1968, when the brand was the official supplier of the French downhill team. Innovation and research resulted in garments that became ever lighter, more aerodynamic and high performing, making them suitable for sporting competitions as well. These garments were the forerunners of the contemporary puffer in all its many and varied forms.
After the '70s boom in mountain tourism came the '80s and ‘90s, when the Moncler jacket made its city debut, transforming itself into a cult object with its stitching and “painted” effect in dazzling colours.
In 2003, Moncler was bought by Italian businessman Remo Ruffini, the current Chairman and CEO who crafted the strategy behind the global puffer jacket, defining a whole range of unexpected yet high quality aesthetic, functional and technological achievements which successfully combined city and mountain wear. With Moncler, the puffer jacket became iconic, a true classic of the contemporary wardrobe which looks beyond trends, expanding the brand’s confines to embrace every season in the year. In addition to the Main collection for men and women, Moncler Accessories and Moncler Enfant, the brand also features Moncler Gamme Rouge, the highly sophisticated women’s couture range, Moncler Gamme Bleu, the men’s collection with a distinctly sartorial take, and Moncler Grenoble, a technical collection of outstanding performance wear.
Moncler has been listed on the Milan Stock Exchange since December 2013.

Ports was founded in 1961, by Luke Tanabe, a Canadian entrepreneur. The company began as a business
that imported silk from Japan, but gradually evolved to become an upscale women’s clothier with a
reputation of making well-crafted garment. By 1966, the company was renamed Ports International,
reflecting Tanabe’s itinerant spirit of global travel - a distinctive characteristic that would become the
defining narrative of Ports.
The spirit of travel influenced the expansion of Ports. By the mid 1970s, the company expanded its retail
store operations throughout much of Canada and into the United States. It was also during this period
that Ports launched their signature menswear line. By 1983 the company began to open signature
boutiques in international locations, including London’s famed Bond Street.
The mid 1980s brought new leadership to Ports and also a new design vision. It was during this period
that Ports began to rebrand itself from a classically inspired town and country clothier to a contemporary
designer label. Most notably was the appointment of Dean and Dan Caten, as head co-designers, where
the designing duo honed their craft and introduced a new look of youthful exuberance into the Ports
The mid 1990s saw many changes to Ports. It was during this period that Ports shifted focus away from
the West and looked towards the East. With the liberalization of the Chinese economy, Ports aggressively
opened stores. As a pioneer in the nascent luxury market, Ports made a lasting impact in China by
introducing fashion consciousness to the Chinese consumers through early support of the global fashion
media. By the end of the millennium, Ports had over 300 stores in Hong Kong and Greater China.
The mid 2000s marked another turning point, with the return of Ports to the West. Under the newly
launched Ports 1961 label, Ports opened new stores in Canada and the United States. In 2004, Ports
relocated its design office to New York City where it launched its men and ladies’ ready-to-wear
collection. In 2007, Ports opened its New York flagship store, in the heart of the historic Meat Market
The new decade of the 2010s saw further changes once again, as Ports 1961 followed its itinerant spirit -
this time focusing attention towards Europe. In 2011, Ports 1961 relocated its design office to Milan, Italy.
In 2013, Ports 1961 opened its flagship store in Paris’ famed rue Saint Honoré, in addition to stores and
retail outlets in the UK, continental Europe, and the Middle East.
