I'm currently enamored with these beaded suede loafers by Alberto Guardiani. The contrast between the sleek, shiny bugle beads against the deep matte black suede is pure genius, and the use of these 80s-reminiscnent beads on a men's shoe is just fresh. Oh to wear these with a slim cream suit to a summer soirée!

They also come in a leather lace-up version, which is not too shabby either.

The Italian leather goods house just teamed up with Wallpaper Magazine for quite an interesting project to celebrate its 30 years in the business. Guardiani teams up with Wallpaper fashion director Sebastien Clivaz for a collaboration capsule collection to be made available in Spring of 2012. Follow the creation process of the collection here.
