Fratelli Rossetti Archive Exhibition At IFC

By Butterboom Writers  /  October 18, 2012

The Italian footwear legends Fratelli Rossetti take you back to their beginnings.

A historic name in Italian footwear, Fratelli Rossetti is putting on an exhibition at the IFC Mall from October 11 to 24.

The exhibition showcases the evolution of footwear – from the introduction of the tassel to the invention of the ‘mannish’ women’s shoe, to the development of sportswear after the Second World War.

With a display of 31 archived shoes, you can also check out the ancient and ethnic shoe collection that includes over 300 different shoes from around the world, collected and treasured by Renzo Rossetti.

A recent introduction to the Rossetti lineage is the ‘Asia’ shoe: a special preview from the 2013 S/S collection that pays tribute to Chinese culture. A fusion of red, pink and burgundy, the colour composition is said to represent luck, the Buahinia Blakeana and the Chinese Fringe plant.
