Gianvito Rossi’s Japan-Inspired Collection Featured Gilded Dragons & Cherry Blossoms

Gianvito Rossi’s affinity for Japan came to life in his fall ’17 collection, presented today at Milan Fashion Week.

Gilded dragons and beautiful brocades combined for standout boots. Cherry blossom prints adorned mules and slippers. A heart “tattoo” made a statement on patent sandals.

“It’s important to feel the texture,” the designer said, holding up one of his favorite pumps, inspired by a kimono.

Rossi also unveiled an elegant version of the sock boot, one of the season’s biggest trends.

Rich hues, including red and shades of purple, were also incorporated across the collection.

While the women’s collection was in the spotlight, there was some big news on the men’s front as well. Rossi revealed that two standalone men’s stores are set to open later this year in Milan and Paris.

The designer also recently opened a boutique in Miami and is expanding to South Coast Plaza in California later this year.
