Sergio Rossi 2014 Collection 2014 is by the works of renowned artist Gabriella Crespi, is feminine and seductive with unique shapes and original contrasts of materials. Symbols of Crespi's aesthetics and geometric shapes typical of the seventies, the period in which the artist was most prolific, blend with the feminine elegance of Sergio Rossi style. The filigree motif of the iconic butterfly adorns pumps and sandals made of two layers of leather in contrasting colors with a see-through effect, while the black suede and metallic-finish leather sculpture-wedge captures the lines of the famous Yang Yin table.
A precious golden drop heel that reproduces the glistening drips on the Gocce Oro candelabra, a work from 1974, illuminates the black suede sandal with fern motif and the bootie lavishly covered in crystals. The artist's style and her originality in combining chromatic modules and contrasting materials, an expression of the artistic vibrancy of her time, also inspire the daytime footwear of this collection.
A tortoiseshell motif, woven leather, and dazzling shades of ibis and aquamarine interpret those years when people returned to their roots and embraced the natural world and its elements. Tortoiseshell patent leather is a precious detail and key element in the construction of the heel on the elegant nappa leather pump and camel nappa leather ankle boot, which also comes in an over-the-knee version.
Woven leather, used as a contrasting insert on the boot, also appears in the sophisticated intarsia on daywear sandals. The sorbet nuances of ibis define the colors of Mary Janes and pumps, while shades of aquamarine illuminate the python leather of sandals with a distinctive dome heel and the fern-printed satin of the slingback pump.
The seventies and their intriguing contradictions, which are expressed in Gabriella Crespi's masterpieces, meet the stylistic universe of Sergio Rossi in a collection that accentuates naturally sensuous lines and materials.
