Sculptural Shoes And Sculptural Women At Sergio Rossi


Francesco Russo debuted his latest collection for Sergio Rossi in Milan today. Alongside it, he screened his latest digital project: a series of ten screens playing original footage. “I wanted to give a visual idea of what I’m thinking, to go into my imaginarium,” Russo explained to “There are ten live portraits of one woman—she looks like a mannequin, yet she’s alive. It’s the new classicism, going back to essence; it’s extreme beauty.”

That extreme beauty isn’t only restricted to the trompe l’oeil gold-detailed wedges and geometric, cutout stilettos in the footwear collection. Russo also designed a series of gold-crusted body belts, worn around the bust, the waist, and the neck, to, as he said, “turn woman into sculpture.” We’d say into badass Amazonian warriors is a little closer to the mark. Check out this exclusive making-of video for a look at the process behind the digital project, then check back for the debut of the films themselves.
