Which are you favorite?

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.

gianvito-rossi-august-sandals

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.

gianvito-rossi-miral-velvet-bootie

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?

gianvito-rossi-moret-velvet-pump

Moret d’Orsay velvet pump with high-rise front; available at MyTheresa and Lane Crawford.

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.

gianvito-rossi-vendome

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-moritz-fur-boot

Moritz suede & fur boot with wrap-around laces; available at Barneys, Saks Fifth Avenue and MyTheresa.

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?!

Shop Gianvito Rossi’s latest collection at Barneys, Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Mytheresa and Gianvito Rossi.

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). 

We hope that everyone is having a warm, sunny summer with their family and friends! As Fall approaches, now is the time to grab some go-to heels that will last you through the winter. Boots, booties and peep-toe pumps are our favorites from Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale.
