Following in the footsteps (pun alert!) of his father Sergio Rossi, Gianvito Rossi founded his own label in 2006. Growing up, he remembers how “To me, [shoes] were toys. The factory was my playground”. Such inherent expertise is combined with the designer's unique aesthetic, leading to elegantly turned out shoe styles – each (exquisitely) made in Italy. Loudly lauded and rightly so, Gianvito Rossi is now himself a living legend.
