Definitely not your usual women's footwear on an industrial scale. This is the most recent and most central Milanese shop of a fashion designer with a family tradition from Biella (Piedmont). Style doesn't affect price too much. Also custom-made shoes, and an online store. More outlets at Corso di Porta Ticinese 60 and 103.

Synthetic materials only for these bags, tote bags, briefcases, in assorted shapes and sizes, featuring simple but interesting technical solutions. Produced on the outskirts of the city, they are the work of Japanese designer Makio Hasuike (hence the name), an otherwise little known genius of the real Milanese industrial design scene.
