The photos of Suicoke among the rationalist architectures of Terragni and Lingeri

The iconic Japanese footwear line chooses the architecture of Como and the backdrop of its lake for the photo campaign of its new summer collection.

For the new spring/summer 2022 collection, Suicoke takes us on an architectural tour of rationalist buildings in the Como area and its lake. The clean, functional lines of the shoes echo the rigorous surfaces of the architecture of Giuseppe Terragni, Pietro Lingeri and Gianni Mantero.

With Vanina Sorrenti’s shots, Como and its architectural gems thus become the backdrop for the photographic campaign where the models are portrayed wandering through the area’s most important architecture. We start with the Novocomum residential complex by Giuseppe Terragno, and move on to the Monumento dei Caduti, a project based on a sketch by the futurist artist Antonio Sant’Elia. Next in the collection’s narrative is Villa Leoni, a masterpiece designed by Pietro Lingeri, inside which surfaces plastered in pastel tones combine with a floor detailed by local Moltrasio stone. The changing rooms, on the other hand, which provide the backdrop for the more sporting outfits is the headquarters of Canottieri Lario, designed by Gianni Montero. The building extends along the lakeshore and opens up to the landscape through ribbon windows.

A new collection in which new elements, colours, and materials are introduced. Brown, which recalls the colour of New Age interiors, is presented for both Depa and Moto models. New hybrid models and great classics are introduced, such as the Tabi, the traditional Japanese shoe now re-proposed with elements from the world of trekking, both in the choice of colours and in the materials and lacing methods. The collaboration with Vibram also returns, with an ironic reinterpretation of the Five Fingers mode
