Pollini is a shoes and accessories brand rooted in Made in Italy tradition, craftsmanship and excellence.
Founded in 1953 by Vittorio Pollini in the San Mauro Pascoli shoe district. During the Italian economic miracle and the golden years of “La Dolce Vita”, Pollini became a popular brand offering shoe collections combining style and functional versatility, a winning match still defining the label.
In 1956, Pollini inaugurated in San Mauro Pascoli its first factory, where, thanks to the implementation of artisanal techniques applied on an industrial scale, the company quickly became a point of reference within the region and started manufacturing shoes for other brands.
During the 1980s the company started its international expansion and in 1989 Pollini moved its headquarters to the Gatteo plant, that also houses the brand’s commercial and administrative departments.
In 2001, Aeffe — parent company of Moschino, Alberta Ferretti and Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini — acquired a controlling stake of Pollini, that started developing the accessories ranges, including handbags, shoes and leather goods, for the brands under the group’s umbrella.
To mark the brand’s 70th anniversary, Pollini revamps its distinctive logo with the iconic “P” surrounded by a laurel wreath, which for the occasion will be enriched with the “70 years” writing. To celebrate this prestigious milestone, Pollini will develop several activities throughout 2023, including capsule launches and special, dedicated projects.
