ABOUT ANDREA CARDONE
Color, design, practicality, elegance, the scent of leather, the silkiness of the materials: Andrea Cardone’s bags and accessories are the expression of the unique value of “Made in Italy.” Expression of a style that is at the same time a choice of life,
The Andrea Cardone collections offer accessories that give the wearer freedom to express her unique style and personality. Every leather bag and accessory offers a perfect balance of innovation and tradition. Choosing a bag means giving shape to your personality: practical, roomy, reliable, keeper of feminine secrets, colorful, modern or vintage. The range of variants is as infinite as the thousand facets of the female universe.
The Andrea Cardone collection is inspired by its thoughtful study and homage to Italian style. In its bags and accessories the thousands of colors of the city of Naples are revived. In the Italian leather, in its suppleness, texture and scent, the passion, skill and dedication of Neapolitan artisanal traditions are brought to life.
In 2006, Andrea Cardone gave life to a dream: a dream born 50 years earlier when as a young boy, he followed his father and grandfather in the old artisan shops in the center of Naples – the same shops which gained Italy renown across the world. Andrea’s lifelong dedication to the craft carries on the manual skill of Neapolitan master craftsmen, renewing their traditions in the name of modernity, elegance and quality. He cultivates his passion each day, ever careful to preserve the quality of detail passed down by the artisans before him.
Andrea Cardone’s Business Collection is recognized for its signature clean, essential, and modern lines. It is the original, recognizable design for a ‘business casual’ look, bridging the informal and professional lifestyles simultaneously. The collection offers quality, functionality and reliability – touting style and versatility as the added bonus. Also signature to Andrea Cardone’s work is his varied collection of leather motorcycle and two-wheeled vehicle helmets. Each offers quality and style with a guarantee of safety: each helmet by Andrea Cardone has European E3 approval.

Customizable hand made shoes for men and women
In an age in which fashion trends change by the day, DIS celebrates the Classics: iconic dress shoes and classic sneakers every sartorially-inclined gentleman should own and should make unique by adding their distinctive touch.
All Made in Italy, DIS offers quality products that still follow a centuries old tradition of excellence and craftsmanship. The manufacturing process evolved by integrating new concepts that make the customer the real protagonist of the artisanal production process and combines personal taste, trends, and fashion. By making entirely customized shoes through a 3D configurator that provides a perfect rendering, DIS has revolutionized the whole artisanal footwear production process in an innovative way. It all started in 2013 when brothers Andrea and Francesco Carpineti met Michele Luconi, a new technologies expert.
Tradition met innovation to create a modern shoe shopping method. But DIS is not just about selling shoes, it’s much more. The brand offers unique personalizations. Everybody can be a designer for a day, and create made-to-order pieces. The 3D configurator allows people to choose from different styles by selecting materials, colors, eyelets, laces, lining and soles — there are over 45 millions combinations. Clients are guided through material and style selections which they can save and modify, it even records their size and provides order status. Choosing the ideal product becomes a ritual, from measurements to choosing the smallest detail, like the monogram and name inscription.
This is DIS’s DNA. The configurator makes it possible to research historic, classic, and distinctive designs from a Made in Italy archive with a global reach. Materials are researched to keep the quality standard of leather and hide high, as well as soles, which includes a new generation of super light and resistant ones. DIS also offers printed shoes with exclusive, stand out patterns. The company draws inspiration from nature, natural elements, and harmonious colors that mix well with different shades of leather. The DIS man’s taste ranges from classic to formal to avant-garde. DIS is currently working on introducing a sneaker line. A women’s line is already available, as well as an accessory collection of fine leather goods and belts.
DIS’s Limited Edition is the ultimate expression of handcrafted skills that pair digital imaging to provide a blank canvas that can be embellished and decorated according to the customer’s refined taste. A personal stylist is on hand to help navigate the customization process, use the 3D configurator, and browse the styles and models on the DIS website. DIS shoes are distributed worldwide through their own website and select boutiques in Italy, Northern Europe, the U.S.A, and Japan. Rooted in the highest standards of design and manufacturing, the brand believes in people and in relationships, in Made in Italy aficionados who appreciate the forward values the company stands for.
