Sergio Rossi's story is one of the iconic ones of Made in Italy luxury in the world.
Mindful of paternal artisan techniques and accompanied by a small group of collaborators, Sergio Rossi set up in the fifties a shoe factory that has as his engine the passion for work and as its objective to create a style capable of fitting fashions and trends.
These are the years of the "Dolce Vita" and his models are hymns to femininity. A very young Gianni Versace helps to create a very close relationship between shoe, dress and sense of body.
The brand definitely made its mark in the following decade, with a line of feminine shoes with an artisan workmanship and an innovative, but always highly seductive design. Its success is also due to the continuous collaborations with established stylists.
Since the 1980s, the business has grown and diversified: bags and men's collections were born and collaboration with many other designers began, including Dolce & Gabbana and Azzedine Alaïa.
A consolidated brand as a symbol of luxury and elegance around the world, Sergio Rossi has always been able to translate the brilliant intuitions of its founder who recently died at the age of 85, after being hit by the coronavirus at the beginning of April, forcing him to be hospitalized in the intensive care unit at the Bufalini hospital in Cesena.
