Its high-end leather comes as a representation of the brand’s philosophy, a way of living and thinking. Its texture, handworked, is easily identifiable and perfects itself over time.

Founded in 2015 by Roberto Aimone and his son Stefano, Ajmone is known for crafting made-to-mesure restyled leather jackets. From the perfecto to the biker jacket, each style is limited to 30 numbered pieces, resulting in actual editions, rather than simple collections. This season, Ajmone is all about dark tones – black, charcoal or deep brown, an hommage to the industrial ages Chaplin once redefined, oh so well.
