Ylati

National pride shines through in a collection of subtle shoes

by Paolo Ferrarini in Style on 26 October 2011

The young duo behind Ylati Footwear perfectly mix traditional Italian craftsmanship with their love for sneakers. Supporting the Made in Italy push for homegrown products in their own subversive way—try reading the label from right to left—Ylati looks to the skilled masters in Italy's Campania region, who use handmade processes to achieve a casually refined aesthetic.

Clean design and a precise balance of materials and textures defines the collection's sharp, understated aesthetic for casual trainers with some polish, and both the fall and upcoming spring collections are based on pale neutral palettes, with details like contrasting soles and an unexpected Oxford eyelet addition to a suede low-top.

The collection is available through Ylati's e-shop with prices starting at 165€.
