Asciari carries pret-à-porter collections and a newly born skin care line. Our brand name – meaning “discover, research and meet your inner self” in the ancient Sicilian language- is a workshop of special ideas and projects in which minimalistic design, natural materials and high-end craftsmanship interact with each other. Together they generate precise cultural and aesthetic codes that define a timeless identity. The brand is a reflection of the lifestyle of its founders and driving force: siblings Marta, Federica and Pietro.
All Asciari’s collections and products are entirely made in Sicily and represent the finest expression of craftsmanship, combining artisan know-how, cutting-edge technologies, and our goals for of sustainability and full-integration. Respect for human life, our region and the environment are at the basis of each product made by Asciari – all representing the founders’ inherited values. The brand reflects an ‘unconventional Sicily’ – hallmarked by its austerity and decided minimalism to create collections that still evoke richness and experience.
The apparel collections reveal a devotion to shapes free from any superstructure and for this reason pure, essential and not subject to ephemeral trends. We source the finest raw natural products, using only prestigious and exclusively natural fibers adopted from suppliers with a strong heritage, and who are capable of developing ad hoc fabrics, finishings and colors. Minimalistic lines are complemented by elite tailoring, fully made and manufactured in Sicily. Double splittable cashmere is a unique hand-made art and signature to the brand.
DIS believes in the revolutionary power of Made-To-Order to handcraft only as much as it’s needed and what’s needed. No waste. Only premium quality products, designed with care and to last. Raw material suppliers are located in an area of just 10 km, allowing DIS to reduce C02 emissions by 30% compared to a normal shoe manufacturing company.
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.
