Francesco Russo traces his passion for ultra-feminine shoes back to childhood. “I was looking at my mother and my sisters getting dressed - he recalls – As soon as they wore heels, they immediately turned into magnificent creatures”.
After 20 years designing for brands including Costume National, Miu Miu, Yves Saint Laurent, Sergio Rossi and Dior, following an idea of shoes as both architectural objects and seduction tools, in September 2013 Francesco Russo went solo, launching his eponymous label.
He chose an unorthodox angle and focused on just a few timeless shapes. By opting for creative rhythms more in synch with true invention, Russo now skips the idea of the collection, as well as the idea of the succession of seasons, to create objects that celebrate beauty.
