Posts about Gianvito Rossi


We’re currently receiving some form of disciplinary action. It involves complete submission to a squad of ready-for-fashion-battle shoes –and you’ll be answering the call of duty soon too, once you get your eyes on them. Together, let’s salute the Gianvito Rossi Fall/Winter 2016 collection –our new shoe heroes.

Rossi’s latest line of footwear is an homage to French and British military uniforms (along with its signature Italian craftsmanship, of course). Adorned with rich hues and regal embellishments, ankle boots and sandals are strikingly commanding –but with a feminine flair that screams elegance –perfect for the lady bosses and the style savants who are ready to conquer the world this fall.


August regal velvet ankle-cuff sandal; available at Barneys and Neiman Marcus.

The collection is sharp and striking –reminiscent of the richly decorated uniforms of the Navy. The Augusta is a velvet gem. Blue, gold and garnet embroideries decorate the sexy stiletto sandal, while the midnight blue Miral bootie brims with fit-for-royalty details such as shiny gold buttons and satin red piping.


Miral velvet peep-toe with contrast trim; available at Barneys, MyTheresa and FarFetch.

The sensual shape of the slip-on loafer might just make you give your classic black pumps a long break. The Moret features a high vamp d’Orsay with naked sides, and a thin 105 mm stiletto heel. Your new power shoe, perhaps?

The Vendome Bootie boasts of a cage design that captures the frogging detail of military jackets. It consists of embroidered loops of black suede with gold stitching, creating a fierce yet ultra-feminine finish.


Vendome lattice cage sandal in black suede and gold embroidery; available at Barneys and Montaigne Market.

Mink and lamb shearlings also add a fun and flirty touch to the collection. The Moritz is an eye-popping emerald suede bootie with a fur-covered front and a lace-up detail to the ankle –a gorgeous accent no doubt, to an LBD or a white tee and jeans combo.

Gianvito Rossi’s Fall ’16 collection is an army of bold and powerful footwear that celebrate femininity and relaxed elegance. The only war we now have to fight is: How can we get our hands on ALL these shoes, stat?!

About the author: Romina Tobias is a freelance fashion and lifestyle writer who is also a hopeless shoe-addict. She thinks her 5’4″ height and her love for long walks make her deserving of all the stilettos, pumps, sandals and ballet flats in the world. If only the cupcakes she expertly bakes can be traded in for a new pair (or two, or hopefully, more). 


Gianvito Rossi pump | 4″ / 100mm heel | available in red & avocado brown at MyTheresa, and navy at Net-A-Porter for 675.00

Covered in plush velvet in gorgeous shades of red, navy and avocado brown the impeccable Gianvito Rossi pumps will bring a touch of pizazz to your outfits this fall. With a perfect pointed toe and elegant slender heel, they bring a seductive edge to your looks. Pair these heels with cropped piqué straight-leg pants, a pleated silk-chiffon and stretch-crepe dress or wool blend coat.


In addition to the blooming flowers, welcoming sunshine and green grass, strappy open-toe sandals are another sign that spring has sprung. Before you know it, it will be time to pack the boots away, treat yourself to a pedi (we suggest trying Dior’s new lilac polish) and slip into some strappy sandals – strappier the better.

Even more obvious than the painted cork trend, denim footwear is impossible to overlook this spring. From shoe maestro Blahnik to pacesetter , the industry brings us a playful spin on the classic jean twill.

From pumps to sandals, platforms to stilettos – each designer created a unique styles inspired by the blue Americana staple. Not only is denim is a reliable fabric perfect for everyday wear but it’s also an interestingly stylish shoe textile.

I particularly love Gianvito Rossi’s take, adding several denim designs to his spring collection which features a dark wash exaggerated with frayed patches. Both Fendi and Christian Louboutin combined a lighter shade with tropical floral printed leather. Jimmy Choo carries the most amount of denim styles this season adding a sleek contrasting black leather trim to several styles.

Gianvito-Rossi-sandal-Spring-2016Lengthened legs, practical shoes and minimal foot pain is Italian designer Gianvito Rossi’s ambition when crafting shoes. His latest designs were presented during Milan Fashion Week where we finally saw the stunning Spring/Summer 2016 collection. From the height of the heels to the materials, Rossi’s aesthetic continues setting the designer footwear trends. He’s shortened the heels ever so slightly maximizing comfort yet maintaining the exquisite design.

Rossi pairs his exceptional craftsmanship with the use of new technical materials like a stretch open-knit and stretch jersey combined with frayed dark denim. We also see the use of intricate geometric tribal embroidery and tricolor suede. One must-have is the Phoenix ankle-wrap sandal featuring layers of white & gold piped leather all fused together. Our other favorite styles include the Queen feather suede sandal and beautifully bright Antigua teal sandal with triangular embroidery.

The black woven leather open-toe Marnie bootie is a recent favorite of Chrissy Teigen and we can see why. It hugs your foot with an accent of wrap-around ankle tie and the slim stiletto is a perfect touch keeping a sleek appeal.

He also drew inspiration from the Navajo tribe embellishing several of his signature styles with bonded piping and geometric embroidery on canvas. Rossi’s trademark single sole staple pumps debut in a fresh color palette such as cyan, mustard and tamarind.

Whether you’re looking for an ultra-feminine ballerina pump, modern gladiator sandal or playful wedge, the collection has something for every shoe lover.
