Entirely handmade in Milan, Bourgeotte is the luxury Italian lifestyle brand known for its exclusive craftsmanship of the modern loafer and mule. Inspired by the flâneur, a French term meaning 'loafer' used by nineteenth-century French poet Charles Baudelaire, Bougeotte sought to bring this same sophisticated street style to modern fashion. Beginning with the heritage Flaneur loafer, which took one and a half years to perfect, Bougeotte continues to painstakingly research the world’s best materials and artisan techniques while growing their shoe and handbag collections. Each collection is eighty percent handmade and produced in select Italian factories.
