Sergio Rossi is one of the most famous Italian shoe brands. Since its creation at the end of the 1960s the brand has become a world leader in the women’s luxury footwear.
The brand defines itself as essentially “Sexy, stylish and Italian”, underlining its unique craftsmanship and enhancing a feminine silhouette.
The 1980s was a period of expansion, as the brand truly became a major player in the world of fashion. The first boutique bearing the Sergio Rossi name opened in Ancona, Italy soon followed by boutiques in Turin, Florence, Rome, Brussels, New York, Los Angeles and London. The brand was growing at such a rapid rate that, on average, two new boutiques were opened each year between 1980 and 1999.
Sergio Rossi also completed his vision through a full range of handbags and small leather goods collection. The iconic Compact clutch became the collection’s must-have item and a favorite of celebrities on red carpets worldwide.
In 1999, Gucci Group finalized the acquisition of the Sergio Rossi brand. The openings of shops are then going to increase in a prestigious list: London, Tokyo, Paris, etc.
In October 2008 Francesco Russo was appointed Creative Director of the Sergio Rossi brand. In charge of all the collections, Womens and Mens footwear, bags and accessories, Francesco Russo gives his own contemporary interpretation, whilst respecting the Sergio Rossi brand identity. The Fall/Winter 2009/10 collection is the first created by Francesco Russo for Sergio Rossi.
In 2009, Sergio Rossi footwear and accessories are sold in more than 40 directly-operated stores and 30 franchise boutiques
