Upon learning the footwear-making trade from his father, Italian designer Sergio Rossi began selling his own boots and shoes to boutiques in Bologna, his hometown. His big break? A collaboration with the legendary Gianni Versace, which catapulted him to international acclaim. Now directed by Francesco Russo, Rossi’s beloved label offers towering stiletto pumps and boots, suede peep-toes, bejeweled wedding shoes, men’s lace-ups and loafers, and many other styles, all noted for their unique textures and unparalleled craftsmanship. Match your shoes with one of Sergio Rossi’s luxurious handbags, which include dazzling satin clutches and leather bags studded with metal hardware. And don’t miss the brand’s edgy laser-cut sandals and crystal-studded flats, which are works of art.
