Hello Lovely Birds,
During Milan fashion week, Gianvito Rossi invited me to his showroom to walk me through his Summer 2014 collection. I was so excited that I asked him if we could film the walk through. He graciously obliged, and here is the video.
In case you don't know, I've been a fan of him and his family's work from way back. I still have my first pair of Sergio Rossi carbon-heel sandals from the Summer 2000 collection when Gianvito's family still owned the company (pictured below). I had some of the best nights of my life wearing those sandals. One in particular took place at Spa, an amazing night club that was popular in the early 2000s. That night both Leonardo DiCaprio and Lenny Kravitz were in the club, and I just couldn't decide at whom or where to look at as I descended the stairs to the VIP area (a friend of a very cool friend got me in). Handsome, blonde and baby-melt-me-blue-eyes or caramel smooth, rock-n-roll me, I cranked my neck back and forth until I heard a distinctive CRAAAACK. And there, I broke my sandal on justice's step, half for Lenny and half for Leonardo. I immediately hailed a cab home to change my shoes. But, don't cry for my sandals, the lovely people at Sergio Rossi sent them to their factory in Italy and had them back to me before the Italian Summer holiday.
Fast forward to today, Gianvito's gorgeous eponymous brand has become one of my absolute go-to shoe labels. In addition to several sexy styles that I can't live with out, like the blush toned ones below, Gianvito's suede pumps have become my court shoe of choice. I always get a new pair for fashion month because they are sexy and incredibly comfortable. I kid you not, I wore my latest black pair for three days straight and my feet felt perfect afterwards. Plus, they are the ideal shoe for transitioning from the office to a night out. If you are looking for a stellar pump, I highly recommend them.
