Where Shoes Are Art, Art Is Shoes

-------

Barneys’ new shoe floor was unveiled this week—all 22,000 square feet of it. To celebrate the occasion (as well as to raise some money for the marriage-equality efforts of the Human Rights Campaign), Sergio Rossi creative director Francesco Russo will be on hand tonight for a private shopping event spotlighting Rossi’s increased presence at the store. Rather than go the usual route of signing soles, Russo decided he’d rather sketch. Customers who purchase a pair of shoes will take them home not only in foot-ready form, but in frameable version, too. In honor of the occasion, Russo sent over a little preview illustration to Style.com.
