The art of footwear has always been at the center of Mirco Scoccia’s life. Growing up in his father’s shoe factory, he began his training at his early age and learned the quality behind fine Italian craftsmanship. With O2 Monde, it became imperative to call back on his experiences and handpick small boutique factories that could partner with him on this new venture. Chosen for their atelier-level of detail in their artistry and the specificity of their work, each factory focuses on a single style of shoe. Marche specifically Fermo is famous for the footwear industry and every atelier has a long history of honing their craft, passed down from generation to generation.
Design & Development
Having begun his career as a footwear designer and pattern maker for luxury houses, Mirco maintains a hands-on approach to his design process for a smooth and seamless modus operandi. Draping each of his materials like fabric, the founder drafts each style by hand in his studio to achieve the perfectly refined silhouette. It is through this design development and keeping a pulse on each step of production that he is able to minimize corrections between the factories. The constant stream of collaboration between the studio and the factories keeps waste to a minimum for a streamlined approach to assembly.Edited with a discerning eye for timeless design, each style is crafted with precise minimums. Keeping the overproduction and overconsumption of today’s retail landscape in our rear view mirror, we minimize excess stock in order to never destroy product. Each season’s unique arrangement of styles are collector’s items which will stand the test of time with an ethical mindset.
Creating change in an industry long steeped in tradition and unconscious disregard for the planet is always an uphill battle. When first approached to go back on hundreds of years of status quo, the factories in Italy were skeptical of working with plant-based materials. Their apprehension towards this uncharted territory stemmed from having only worked with the finest of Italian leather for generations. Due to their mastery of the craft, they were the perfect partners to advance this new frontier in design. After swaying their position and lessening their doubts, the factories throughout Italy have joined in O2 Monde’s mission to create a sustainable future. Embracing this newfound undertaking, they have become pioneers and crucial partners in discovering new techniques and modern approaches to production.
