Street style fiends should add shoe-master Gianvito Rossi to their “must have” list this season. Rossi, known for his feminine styles, just introduced the mother of all sexy shoes, one inspired by the Playboy bunny.
Complete with a little black bow-tie and bunny ears, the heeled sandals debuted today at Rossi’s fall/winter 2015 presentation. There is plenty of whimsy in the look, but also a seductiveness that makes them distinctly from the designer’s point of view.
“It’s my version of something very playful, but still sleek and of course super seductive without being vulgar,” Rossi told FN’s fashion director Mosha Lundstrom at the preview today.
Along with the bunny shoes, Gianvito’s collection included black and white pumps with ankle straps for added oomph, velvet pumps and peep-toe shearling lace up boots and booties (if only we could have them to get us through the rest of winter).
Rossi’s been very busy ahead of fashion week. He recently re-imagined three of his classic silhouettes for a bridal capsule collection at Level Shoe District. “A woman wearing Gianvito Rossi Bridal shoes should feel like a cloud in the sky,” he said of the looks.
