For their newest campaign, Sergio Rossi is again featuring frequent collaborator Bianca Brandolini D’Adda. This marks the second time the Italian/Brazilian fashion plate and Milan-based luxury brand (which was recently acquired from Kering by Investdustrial) are working together on both the advertisements and collection itself, with D’Adda serving as in-house muse to design director Angelo Ruggeri. The first was for the fall ’15 collection, which centered around all-black styles she said form the pillars of her shoe wardrobe.
This season, D’Adda and Ruggeri took an entirely different direction, with a bohemian collection inspired by her Brazilian roots with getaway-ready shoes featuring tropical embroidery, discotheque platforms and beachy bracelet-style braiding on stilettos and sandals. The light-soaked campaign was photographed by Alvaro Beamund Cortes and styled by Clernece Cahu, with D’Adda wearing sheer caftan dresses and tunics for a seventies style. FN first reviewed the collection at the label’s presentation in Milan during fashion week.
In the shots, she models the Cancun Wedge in white canvas ($1,495) and the Biarritz Sandal in platinum and black leather with hand-woven details ($950).
