AGL's Italian manufacturing excellence and the exquisite creativity of the Giusti sisters emerge in the fiercest article of the Spring/Summer 2017 collection worn by charismatic Maggie Gyllenhaal in the advertising campaign shot by Bryan Adams.
The calf leather sandal skillfully blends androgynous inspiration and feminine elegance. Its
futuristic minimalist design – halfway between a sandal and lace-up shoe – is embellished with criss-crossed grosgrain ribbons tied in a soft bow. The leather sole is decorated with large goldtone studs and a black leather tubular welt hand-braided with multicolored raffia and leather laces.
Passion is a hereditary gene that has guided us in over 50 years of creating footwear. This passion, taste for refined design and artistic sensitivity have remained the same for three generations and still drive us today to search for innovations. Our story starts in 1958 in Montegranaro, a small town in the Marche Region of Italy, where Piero Giusti put down roots and plants the first seed of a factory that is destined to endure over time. The same tie to his origins compels his son Attilio Giusti to continue down the same road divided between artisanship and couture creating elegant and subtle footwear. The tradition of being a family business continues today with the three daughters of Attilio Giusti joining the company: Sara, Vera and Marianna. Softness and the attention for a comfortable fit are the priorities for every AGL creation over the last 50 years and 3 generations.
