Self-proclaimed “shoe fetishist”, Francesco Russo creates truly sexy footwear. Are you familiar with the iconic YSL “Tribute”? Well he designed that….
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!
