Men’s Presentation
Spring-Summer 2017

June 2016 – Fratelli Rossetti takes inspiration from the Hamptons, the summer resort where New Yorkers take a break from their hectic Manhattan lifestyle to bask in beachfront villas cooled by ocean breeze. The Spring-Summer 2017 collection by Fratelli Rossetti has been designed for refined tastemakers in search of unconventional elegance. This season fringe is a sophisticated detail, adding a versatile, decorative touch to the timeless loafer.

The natural colours of the Hamptons inspire the collection: the hues of sand dunes, aged wooden docks that stretch into the water, amber sunsets and immaculate green lawns. Fratelli Rossetti’s signature hand dyeing technique brings these colours of grey, brown, blue and green to the forefront. Each Rossetti shoe artisan creating a unique, one-of-a-kind pair. The All Over painting technique used on the shoes soles underlines the meticulous care Fratelli Rossetti puts into every detail, even the most hidden. Each shoe is entirely painted by hand using the same shade, from the upper to the sole.

Fratelli Rossetti has a motto: “Innovation must always embrace tradition”. This season, the traditional men’s loafer gently embraces fringe, a ground-breaking decorative element presented in a versatile way on three new designs:
THE TRADITIONALIST – For easy-going breakfasts under the portico by the pool, the traditional two-material loafer gets adorned with fringe. Constructed for summer comfort, the shoes have an extremely light sole.
THE MAVERICK – Staying true to its unorthodox roots, the iconic Brera loafer with tassels is enriched with fringe. A refined double interweave process, made by hand directly onto the upper, renders this loafer ultra-soft and cool. It is ideal for strolling along the tree-lined streets of Southampton.
THE INNOVATOR – Embellished with both fringe and buckles, this loafer is hand-buffed by master craftsman. Its flawless elegance is the star of the Hamptons summer scene and its twinkling parties in the mansions.
