Former Jimmy Choo accessories design director Alvaro Gonzalez is launching an eponymous collection with Mr.Porter.com.
The men’s accessories line will include calf leather sandals, leather belts and crocodile eyewear cases in shades of aubergine, deep sea blue and dark green. The range was created in artisanal workshops around Florence.
Retail prices for the calf sandals start at £225, while slim calf belts cost £195. Crocodile eyewear cases and belts are £395.
Gonzalez, who is based in London and Florence, said the collection was born out of pieces he regularly has made for himself and the former Valentino accessories designer is considering extending the range into womenswear.
Mr Porter.com will sell the line exclusively later this summer and Gonzalez said he will be looking to expand to other retail outlets for spring 14.
