Designers Yuji Miura

Fashion Who Is On Next? UOMO 2010

Born in Japan and based in Milan, Yuji Miura studied shoe design at Cordwainers at the London College of Fashion and did his apprenticeship in John Lobb’s prestigious bespoke shoe firm. In Italy he has worked with Premiata and D&G, - always in footwear and accessories. Yuji Miura reinterprets minimal Japanese esthetics through a sophisticated urban filter. His men’s shoes which are entirely handmade in Italy, are the finest examples of what happens when essential design meets quality manufacturing: a collection that takes Italy’s finest leather-crafting tradition and refreshes it with unpredictable touches of style. Clear lines and interesting touches for a timeless shoe that combines Italian elegance with Japanese sensitivity.
