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.
