In the new Fall Winter collection Gianvito Rossi’s masterly forms are presented as slight variations on singular themes: barely-there sandals with elegant ankle straps in the Portofino silhouette, now embellished with patent leather hearts on the seductive Love sandal.
Colors remain neutral — black, off-white and bisque — save for dramatic pops of tabasco red, like the sophisticated patent Manhattan sandals.
BLACK CORSET BOOTIES
New low-key detailing includes unexpected lingerie grommets, which line the front of black stretch jersey Satine corset booties.
Multistrap wrap up black calfskin stiletto sandals rounds out a collection of boldly feminine pieces.
BUTTERY NAPPA AND SOFT VELVET
Materials are comfortable and soft to the touch like those lace up grey nappa flair heel high Mackay booties, and the Bond, black velvet slippers on a mid flair heel.
ASIAN INSPIRED ELEMENTS
Gianvito Rossi’s latest collection for Winter 2017 finds also inspiration in the graphic symbolism and rigorous craftsmanship of the Far East.
The dragon imagery — in the style of traditional Japanese tattoos — appears over stunning black satin booties, Opera sandals and cuissard boots, whose toes have been lengthened for a powerful profile.
