I made a crazy trip before PFW. Woke up at 3am and flew from Paris to Milan, then went to Bologna from Milan by train. After a long journey, I finally arrived my destination – Rimini, a city of Northern Italy.
Thanks for the invitation from Gianvito Rossi, one of my favorite brands, their shoes is the most comfortable high heel I owned. Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge is also their big fan and collector, she appears to have taken a liking to Gianvito Rossi’s shoes as she kept wearing the same style of pump in different public events.
I were visiting the Factory of Gianvito Rossi that afternoon. It was really impactful and unforgettable time for me as I never imagined I can be there, especially toured by Mr Rossi, he built his eponymous shoe brand with a devotion to purity of design. His shoes are the kinds of shoes that transcend trends and time. Mr Rossi said because of his father, Sergio Rossi, the factory was just like his own playground in his childhood.
Mr Rossi shared his design vision and production process of his shoes. With Italian glamour and fine traditional craftsmanship at the core of the brand, Rossi's stilettos, pumps and ankle boots are beautifully designed, highly desirable and synonymous with elegant European style.
Their shoes are using exquisite leather, e.g. crocodile leather and snake leather etc. Mr Rossi shared with us that one piece of crocodile leather only can make one pair of shoes, their shoes is extremely precious, just like an art-piece.
At night, Mr Rossi hosted a private dinner with international celebrities, influencers, buyers and editors at Grand Hotel Rimini. I were honored to be invited to their private dinner as HK representative.
晚上Mr Rossi宴請了來自世界各地的名人、Influencer、Buyer及編輯等出席他設於Grand Hotel Rimini的晚宴，我非常榮幸可以代表香港參加這個盛會。
Thanks Gianvito Rossi team prepared their Natalie Sandal as a welcome gift for me to the dinner. Thanks for having me again and thanks Mr Rossi helps me (and all ladies) feel my full femininity without feeling overexposed. I am planning to get my new pair of Gianvito Rossi soon. How about you?
