Fratelli Rossetti had visions of vacationing in New York’s Hamptons for spring ’17. The label was inspired by the colors traditionally found in the popular summer-cottage communities: aged browns found on boat docks, deep blues from the pool or beach, oranges and reds from picture-perfect sunsets.
To show off the colors, it focused on three loafer styles: a tassel, a buckled strap and a kiltie style. The limited styles were a strategic choice to show off the brand’s hand-applied patina work. The colored leathers are actually done by applying dye with a sponge, allowing for a different finish unique to each shoe.
If you find yourself craving other styles, though, the brand just launched its redesigned e-commerce website today. It features a sleeker look and easier-to-use interface.
