The Sergio Rossi Love Story
Francesco Russo unveils his latest Sergio Rossi collection in Milan today. To go with the presentation, he’s screening a short film by director Drake Doremus (the 2011 Sundance Film Festival winner behind Like Crazy and also the man behind his Fall ’12 movie), featuring top model Marcelle. “Ever since I saw Like Crazy last year, I’ve been fascinated by his romantic sensibility,” Russo tells Style.com. “I asked Drake to show us his interpretation of the collection, and the result is The Search—an oneiric love story.”
That love story is told through the designer’s seductive fringe stilettos and green and gold wedges and graphic prints. Of the collection, he explains, “It is a tribute to Italian design: Memphis on one side and the more warm work of Carlo Bugatti on the other.” Here, Style.com has an exclusive first look at the collection and the video, for all those who aren’t in Milan right now.
