Just as the last touches are being made at the Istituto dei Ciechi in Milan where Sergio Rossi is presenting his autumn/winter 2017 collection named sr1, we’ve got an early preview of what the brand is calling “the next chapter in its journey to rediscover the true essence of the brand”.

Rossi is known for his expertly-made high glamour moulded into a stiletto heel, but with sr1 - it’s the time for a change. A new beginning for a celebrity-favourite shoe designer is about being graphically bolder than ever before, using ideas like patchwork and colour-blocking inspired by interior designs. Structured and hypnotic geometries that evoke architectural elements span over booties and over-the-knee boots as well as classic stilettos and flat loafers.

With the harmonious mix of the maximalist spirit and heritage of Milano and the cool new graphic elements, this new chapter of Sergio Rossi is one we’re happy to read.
