Gianvito Rossi Collection Fall/Winter 2012-2013
July 1, 2012
Graphic couture. Ultra-feminine and sophisticated, the Gianvito Rossi Collection for Fall/Winter 2012-2013 is the synthesis of a stylistic approach that has taken shape over time. It is the sublimation of the aesthetic power of a line and the sinuosity of a stroke able to transform footwear into a harmonious extension of a woman's body. Stylistic themes express spontaneous sensuality, allowing a detail, element or combination of colors to make a statement.
Pumps and booties are the stars this season. The palette inspires creative flair and an almost serial use of color that becomes a style detail besides lace, corset laces, cool metal inserts and quirky torero tassels. In a carefully studied combination of contrasts, monochrome nuances of beige, black and steel gray are offset by a vibrant range of floral hues such as peony, crimson red, tamarind orange, and hyacinth blue toned down by deep forest green.
The pointy pump in a refined lingerie shade of beige or powder pink creates a cool contrast to a fierce outfit. A dentelle-like profile decorates the surface. A distinctive design, accentuated by a black line, introduces the theme of layered colors and materials. An intellectual patchwork is produced in series on moccasins, which become a versatile space for experimenting with unusual combinations.
Other times, it is the line that is highlighted: the lithe silhouette of tubular booties secured at the ankle, the interrupted line of a mule, or the sinuous curves of an open-toe pump in peony suede with crimson trim forming an opening decorated with laces and tassels. With movements as subtle as rippling water, cuissard boudoir boots with laces on the back are the quintessence of femininity.
For daytime, this aesthetic language is translated into soft tubular boots and booties in amaranth and green boxed leather or patent leather in black and rust, the trendiest shades for daywear next winter. Meanwhile, moccasins and lace-up shoes in chestnut brown reveal a sexy, urban soul.
