Gianvito Rossi is the talented son of famed shoe designer Sergio Rossi. He learned the craft of designing shoes under the tutelage of his father and struck out on his own in 2006. His creations are beautiful and show great attention to detail. His stilettos often include the signature high back.
He strives to make alluring shoes that are also functional and minimize foot pain. Hooray! I can attest to their comfort. I wore the stilettos pictured below to a holiday ball and was able to move around between my guests and dance the night away!
Mr. Rossi designs for the “strong-minded woman who wants to dress in a modern feminine and elegant way.” He wants his shoes to stand the test of time to be enjoyed for years to come. At the $700-$1,000 plus price point, Gianvito Rossi designs are an investment, but seem to be a shoe where you will get your money’s worth and more. They also go on sale when the next season ushers in a new collection. Celebrity collectors include: Gwyneth Paltrow, Penelope Cruz, Reese Witherspoon and Sarah Jessica Parker.
