Boccaccini Spa was founded more than 50 years ago (1959) as a small family-run business and very early on it was recognised as something special because of its particularly original and elegant range and its use of exotic leathers such as ostrich, python and crocodile. The excellent quality and premium nature of the products attracted appreciation and interest on an international level and as a consequence, throughout the sixties and seventies Boccaccini progressively conquered the markets of Europe, theUSand theFar East.
A defining moment came in 1987 thanks to the experience, knowledge and intuition ofAlfredo Boccacciniwho, having grown up in the heart of the Boccaccini company and with his incredible passion for shoes, successfully launched the brand “L’Autre Chose”. This collection represents the idea of an obvious distinctness and a unique approach to the world of footwear.
“L’Autre Chose” literally translated as “The Other Thing”, this name came from the wish to refresh the shoes market which was suffering a relevant design crisis at that time and to reconfirm the creativity as the basement of the shoes sector.
Its logo was inspired by the Japanese culture, the letter “o” inside the brand-name resemble the circle shape named “enso” by the Japanese calligraphic art: a metaphor of the absolute zen and symbol of the pure soul motion, of the eternal change of the things. Then the decision to extract this letter insight L’Autre Chose and to make it as its own logo.
