We’ve heard the story now and again, designers being influenced by art and architecture, but just when we thought architects were the ones taking cues from designers – think Zaha – Italian shoe company Sergio Rossi’s Creative Director Francesco Russo, in a related press statement, cites specific references to the work of Hadid and photographer David Zimmerman in his latest shoe collection. While we’re not quite sure if Russo was inspired by her shoes or buildings, his shoes, nonetheless, are composed of bold colors and graphic designs, reminiscent of some of Hadid’s most striking architecture. Available in high-rising stilettos, towering wedges, strappy sandals, and boots high and low, the shoes come in a variety of textures including watersnake skin, goatskin, suede, leather, and natural linen. The shoes are offset by the fluidity of their soft lines, characteristic of all Sergio Rossi designs. Part of the designer’s Cruise collection, the shoes can be purchased online and at Saks Fifth Avenue come fall. Do you buy the influence?
