The Sergio Rossi’s Spring/Summer 2014 Collection, entitled “Italian Extravaganza,” made its debut on September 19 at Milano Moda Donna (Milan Fashion Week), at an exclusive event held in an historical Milanese mansion and represents the culmination of a creative approach that, starting with the Pre-Spring 2014 Cruise Collection, explores the design and decorative arts of the early seventies and interprets them in a contemporary way. The collection presentation and subsequent Cocktail Party was attended by a wide swatch of the fashion industry and friends of the brand, all there to celebrate what appears to be yet another successful collection of soon-to-be must-have shoes.

Angelo Ruggeri, Collections and Design Director, applied to the eclecticism and vibrancy of those years the signature style of the brand based on refinement, artisan tradition, and a keen eye for detail, creating a multifaceted collection in which pure shapes are accentuated through the choice and combination of different materials and colors.

A symbol of this exercise in style is the season’s new Pyramid-Shaped Stiletto that blends curved lines and striking geometric shapes, cleverly using contrasts to create balance and harmony.

The collection has two universal themes inspired by the versatile aesthetic of those years: the organic world with its rich variety of elements and the kaleidoscope as a filter that creates amazing shapes and reflections. The kaleidoscope is the idea behind the vibrant color combinations similar to those in the works of Russian painter Sergei Poliakoff or the playful blends of patterns that pay tribute to the world of interior designer David Hicks and are reproduced on a more natural “Vienna straw” woven material.

Natural elements are bamboo, which is used for sculptural sandals with contrasting metallic details, and giraffe or zebra-print gladiator-style sandal boots made of stingray leather. Also evoking nature are the animal prints renewed in an optical illusion created by luxurious soutage embellishments or the abstract version of a camo patchwork in pony skin leather inspired by a famous creation of Giò Ponti and made with a skillful intarsia technique.

The same light is reflected and rearranged into original geometric shapes in 3D jacquard macro-print suede sandals or it shines in the tiny jewel embellishments used for dressy evening shoes that cover the foot with dazzling sparkles. The sandal with fougère ‘climbing vines’ made of shaded rhinestone pavé that surround the ankle and are suspended without any support is a conceptual synthesis of the two inspiring themes and the maximum expression of the brand’s artisan skill and expertise.
