about the creator
Having spent his childhood in his father Sergio Rossi's workshops, who had among others created shoes for the house Versace, Italian designer Gianvito Rossi decided to follow his father's footsteps. He launched his eponymous brand in 2006, presenting his spring-summer collection at the Milan Fashion Week. His motto: “the real luxury of shoes lies in the pleasure of slipping them on”. Gianvito combines sober and sophisticated design with Italian craftsmanship and know-how, considering the shoe like a piece of art that is made to elevate a woman's silhouette. His pumps and heeled sandals elongate the leg while staying very comfortable. He quickly made a name and international reputation for the comfort of his creations for women, from pumps to sandals, mules and ankle boots. The Italian brand owns several stores around the world, in Milan, Paris, London and New York. Gianvito Rossi's footwear in velvety suede, buttery nappa leather and even Plexiglas is loved by modern women for their clear and timeless lines that can be worn throughout the years. An iconic creation of the brand, the Plexi shoe shows off the foot thanks to a clear central part. One of the designer's favourite creations, the Portofino sandal, sports minimalistic lines that will elevate any of your outfits from the little black dress to suit and jeans. The high quality of the Italian-crafted shoes makes them a favourite of Hollywood stars - Gwyneth Paltrow, Penelope Cruz, Diane Krueger and Sarah Jessica Parker collect them.
