An eccentric classic
The Sergio Rossi woman is grounded in both reality and fantasy. The heel is mainly low and supports a new creation, part moccasin and part slipper, that seeks to establish a new aesthetic of comfort and elegance in Spring-Summer 2017 collection.
The finishes are made of gold or silver. The uppers range from the minimalist to the luxurious, as in a musical crescendo rife with details (baguettes, tinted glass, mirror effects, ethnic and jungle nods). A subtle “sr1” is micro-engraved on the heels. The 6cm heel is back, thin in profile and imposing from the back, lifting sabots and sandals while remaining firmly grounded in reality.
The brand was established in the 1960s and is deeply rooted in the creativity and expertise of its eponymous founder, who viewed shoemaking as a continuous reflection on shape, harmony and elegance. Quality materials, craftsmanship, luxury and elegance remain the cornerstones of Sergio Rossi style today. Sergio Rossi is present around the world in 80 boutiques and in a selection of prestigious multibrands. Today Sergio Rossi has 560 employees, 330 of whom are based in Italy - either at the showroom in Milan or the manufacturing site in San Mauro Pascoli (Forlì-Cesena). Sergio Rossi is 100% controlled by Investindustrial, a leading European group of independently managed investment, holding and advisory companies with €5.6 billion of raised fund capital.
