Italian luxury shoemaker Alberto Moretti unveiled his new collection in Milan on Saturday, with ruched collar designs, brassiere gold chains and macaroon patterns in a "rock" take on the style of France's last queen, Marie Antoinette.Moretti only has one shop in St Tropez but distributes widely, including in the United States through Barneys department store in New York, and received attention by selling shoes made with 24-carat gold in Dubai for $4,800 (3,500 euros).Shoes are one of the fastest-growing sectors in the luxury industry, with the world shoe market valued at $17 billion in 2013, up from $15 billion in 2012 according to the consultancy Bain & Co.Moretti said that, while other countries can also produce quality shoes, the secret of Italian craftsmanship lies in the vision of individual artisans.
