"He’s my love affair," extols Condé Nast Fashion Director Anya Ziourova at the mention of Gianvito Rossi, voicing a sentiment that is shared by a legion of the shoe designer’s A-list fans. A go-to for the likes of Jennifer Lawrence, Gigi Hadid and Olivia Palermo, while there can be no doubting the style credentials of a pair of Gianvito Rossi pumps, it is the comfort factor that really sets them apart.
"It’s an element you need to consider throughout the design process," Rossi explains on being quizzed about how he makes a 10cm heel fit for all-day wear, "you have to really think about it." It’s obvious that a lot of thought has gone into the design for each and every pump, though, with classics – such as the Bari – joined by more modern styles like the Calabria, which features plexi panels for an edgier finish.
The perfect shoe choice, whether it’s day-to-night styling or all-out glamour that’s required, start your very own love affair.
