The shoe is the result of a passion which starts from a creative intuition, coming to life in a drawing and continues in the search for the finest materials. In an ode to femininity, the women’s collection combines technique and design. The fashion house continues to reflect on the themes of shape, harmony and elegance. proportions and weights must be calibrated to perfection, to create a model that is aesthetically attractive and wearable at one and the same time, Sergio Rossi has 80 stores around the world and are stocked in leading department stores, such as Saks Fifth Avenue, Barneys New York, Lane Crawford, as well as concept stores including Luisa Via Roma and Colette.

Autumn/Winter 2016-17 Collection
Seventies reminiscence alongside an air of Bohemian chic evoke a joyous tale of summer in Sergio Rossi's Spring- Summer Collection 2016. The contrast of shape and colour, bold yet feminine alternate between light and nimble flats or stilettos and more robust wedges. Simple turned wood gives way to beautiful hand- wrapped marquetry where classic 1970s clogs are recast as plunging wedges, made using cork and a mixture of natural wood that produces a unique pattern on each pair of shoes, making no two pairs the same. As evening approaches, simple braided sandals hark back to the glamour of 1970s disco music, enhanced by patterns and motifs that are embellished by the use of black and gold plating. Strings and embroidered thread are used as a playful way of making wedges or masculine lace-ups unique. The neutral and organic range of colours is highlighted by a multi-coloured camouflage effect, while the use of crochet fabric work creates delightful patterns.The days are eccentric and the evenings minimalist, in this atmosphere of aesthetic eclecticism. By deliberately playing with contrasts, the Spring-Summer Collection 2016 by Sergio Rossi takes the form of a frame that sheds its traditional decorations, before being overwhelmed by a luxurious tropical nature that celebrates the creativity and femininity that has always set this particular brand apart.
