L’Autre Chose S.p.A was founded in 1959 in the heart of the Marche region, in eastern Italy, a district of excellence in the high-end shoe production industry and a bustling place that continues to inspire and shape the values of quality, uniqueness and refinement that are at the heart of the brand.

In 1987, after nearly thirty years of manufacturing experience in the fashion sector, the company launched its eponymous footwear label L’Autre Chose and throughout the years, the brand’s aesthetic vision has grown to include ready-to-wear and handbag collections.

In 2013, the brand became part of the Sator Private Equity Fund, which triggered the beginning of a new strategy of international development and omnichannel expansion. The Sator Private Equity Fund has now acquired an 100% stake in L'Autre Chose, launching a management reinforcement process that has led to the appointment of Alice Carli, as Chief Executive Officer, and Nicolò Beretta, as Creative Director. The retail, wholesale and e-commerce channels are perfectly integrated, ensuring an exclusive distribution coverage which is extensive and especially international, so as to spread the prestige of Italian excellence worldwide.



The Italian soul of the brand, both in manufacturing excellence as much as in creative inspiration, represents the key value of the company, which for over 50 years now has recognized flawless quality and accuracy as the main pillars at the core of its lasting legacy and future standing in the luxury fashion scene.

L’Autre Chose’s headquarters and specialized manual conveyors are still today located in Porto Sant’Elpidio, along the coastline of the Marche region, a cozy and industrious landscape where the constant blend between craftsmanship and modernization allows local artisans to hone their skills at the ever-evolving pace of technological progress.

This ideal of perfection is expressed in every phase of the creative process, from the sourcing of the raw materials to the mixes of different textures and hues, from impeccable finishes unexpected details, all executed with unparalleled precision and meticulous attention to detail.

In this setting, nestled between green hills and the Adriatic Sea shores, Made in Italy becomes the first inspiration and major asset for L’Autre Chose’s upper premium proposition and for its extraordinary synthesis of creativity, design and contemporaneity.


L'Autre Chose has entrusted the creative direction of the brand to Nicolò Beretta, a talented Italian designer internationally recognized for his fresh, sophisticated and contemporary vision.

After founding and leading his footwear brand Giannico to international success, Nicolò has now joined the L'Autre Chose team to oversee the style and creative vision of all the footwear, accessories and ready-to-wear collections, with a specific focus on craftsmanship and innovation as per the tradition of the company founded in the Marche region of Italy.
