Sergio Rossi Spring-Summer 2013: Extraordinary combinations
The Sergio Rossi Spring-Summer 2013 collection unites the iconographic language of Memphis Milano and the precious manual skills of Carlo Bugatti.
Creative Director Francesco Russo presents a visually striking collection that is pure and without compromise.
Sottsass’s radical design – combinations of bold color, angular geometric motifs, and a penchant for unusual materials – inspired Russo’s creativity. The tone is daring and sharp. Each model has a precise aesthetic character defined by a spirit that is both elegant and maximalist.
Russo’s concept is eclectic yet consistent: committed to undermining the rules, he replaces the industrial process favored by Memphis design with the superb artisan approach of Carlo Bugatti. Sergio Rossi’s distinctive and refined craftsmanship can be seen in the couture touches that define the entire collection. Woven leather inserts with three-dimensional texture juxtapose colors and form graphic elements on heels, soles, and straps. Metallic surfaces interrupt dizzying color combinations and fool the eye: laminated and patent leather with crystal intarsia are the choice for evening. A sense of rebellious sensuality defines the entire collection.
