Fratelli Rossetti 2012 summer collection for men and women

The Fratelli Rossetti shoe proposal for this summer is aimed at an independent and aware woman, in search of the most authentic tenets of elegance. This woman is capable of femininity without taking herself too seriously, and indeed indulges in a touch of tongue-in-cheek spirit.

Natural colors inspired by the earth, high quality materials and traditional workmanship techniques, the same used in over 60 years in the business, are the key features. The highlights of the collection include the return of the Hobo,  the “lace-up without laces” in a new range of colors geared towards understatement: navy, ivory and cord. These flats are made from ultra-soft, glove-like leather. This shoe is truly designed for those that want to feel feminine even without heels. They have some beautiful sandals that I think would be beautiful for your destination wedding.

For men, the basic concept does not place its bets on one single new model but instead on the new techniques used. In doing so it adopts an all-new approach to using the materials, whilst allowing Italian craftsmanship to continue to flourish.

Weaving takes centre stage in the collection. It features both in the Brera moccasin, the icon of Fratelli Rossetti production in the Sixties, and the handcrafted Oxford shoe.  What makes these shoes a true investment, is they are made from a single piece, without any cutting or stitching. Without a doubt, it is a technique which underscores the craftsmanship that goes into these models.

The entire men’s collection is based around the colours, which vary from myrtle to almond, from ruby to aviation blue, whilst the canvas versions find the more classic shades of blue, dark brown, grey and cord.
