Earlier this year, Italian shoemaker Sergio Rossi began a series of collaborations known as srAddiction. The brand kicked started the project by partnering with Marta Ferri, followed by Net-A-Porter and now, Rosie Assoulin.
Known for creating whimsical pieces in a vibrant spectrum of colour, American Designer Rosie Assoulin has a charming aesthetic which has been fused with Sergio Rossi’s iconic sr1 style to create a capsule of ballerina flats, embellished pumps and kitten-heeled mules.
Incorporating Rosie Assoulin’s stand against cruelty-free fashion, the collaborative collection is completely vegan — marking Sergio Rossi’s first step into ethical footwear.
“I was lucky enough to visit the Sergio Rossi offices and factory in Italy last fall where I toured the archives and immaculate facility” said Rosie Assoulin.
“I was excited to collaborate on this project as it was the first vegan offering by the house. We were inspired to add some playful but classic elements, and what’s more classic than pearls?”
Crafted from silk in four contrasting colours — red, black, white and floral-printed pale blue — each style comes with a signature buckle adorned in a waterfall of pearly orbs.
Designed for all hours of the day, the shoe has Rosie Assoulin’s stamp of femininity mixed with Sergio Rossi’s classic DNA.
The next chapter of srAddiction will see Sergio Rossi team up with another American designer, Adam Lippes.
