Good afternoon, please say a few words for Shoes Report!
Are you in Germany?
No, we are from Russia.
How are you doing in Russia?
We have a crisis, but we still love Baldinini, because Russians always loved beautiful things, beautiful shoes ...
It's true. Three years ago, things were going very well in Russia. And now, Russians come to my enterprise every day. They come to my show room at the factory, find it on the navigator. Of course, Russia does not buy in the same volume as before, but now things are going a little better than it was at the very beginning of the crisis. I have been working in Russia for 35 years already, I even have a photograph in which Vladimir Putin is wearing Baldinini boots.
Does Baldinini participate in Fashion Week?
In Milan, yes, I also do Pitti Uomo. Sometimes it's a fashion show, sometimes it's just a showroom, in different ways.
And in which countries do your shoes buy more?
In Russia, China and Italy.
