Max Verre has signed an agreement with Falc, the Italian company which owns the Naturino brand, to design a new line of footwear called “Voile Blanche.” The new shoe collection is more fashion-focused than the existing “Max Verre Neapolis” line, using hand-stitched constructions and vegetable leather and featuring ultra-light water-repellent models weighing only 230 grams, inspired by nautical sports. Aimed at an elitist market, it will be retailed in 50 high-end, multi-label stores in Italy during the first year. Based at Civitanova in the Marche region, Falc is reported to be manufacturing about three million pairs per year.
