Alessandro has suede shoes made with a new type of leather called olive-toned leather.
The new material is said to be “less water resistant and more durable” than its predecessor, and it has been developed by Italian company Espinoza.
It has also been used to make leather goods such as shoes and jackets.
The new product is not just for Alessandro’s collection.
He said the company was also working on leather shoes for men’s and women’s wear.
