As the designer of women’s footwear for Dior, the 39-year-old launched his namesake label last September on Paris’ Rue de Valois.

Having seen some of his renderings (see above), I am anxiously anticipating how I can scoop a pair of these new “classics” like the R026. “It looks like your average heel from afar, but a closer view reveals a multitude of 5 mm leather strips stitched together by hand.” (Marie Claire, April 2014)



I can’t wait…..

Be on the lookout for Francesco Russo!
