Pitti Immagine Uomo

January 2018 - Fratelli Rossetti is returning to Pitti Immagine with a collection of different models that are bound together by a common thread. Visible stitching with zigzag motif mixed together with colourful threading is the signature feature of the Master Artisans from Milan. This decorative element, playing around with materials and two-tone combinations, is presented on a range of Fratelli Rossetti iconic models, including the Brera loafer, the Oxford, the Derby, and also on sneakers.

A key style among some of the new additions for next winter, the iconic Brera, is now embellished with satin details in various colours on its tassels, loafer edges, insoles, and hems. The shoes also stand out for their leather. Colour is removed and then reapplied, creating extremely intense shades. In addition, a sportier version of the Brera has a thicker but ultra-light sole, with zigzag designs around the edge.The same motif has also made it into the sport collection on two of the models to be presented: The first features a classic boxed sole and decoration on the upper part of the shoe, its materials ranging from patent to more artisanal leather. The other, with larger features, is made out of two-tone leather or single-coloured velvet.

“Our return to Pitti confirms a path of growth undertaken by the company”, explains Diego Rossetti, president of Fratelli Rossetti. “The event is becoming an increasingly prestigious international stage. As we have contributed to the history of this exhibition, we couldn’t miss another one”.

Fratelli Rossetti’s decision to return to Pitti, after a hiatus of 6 years, is underlined by the fact that the brand will be presenting men’s and women’s collections together during Milan Fashion Week: a unique event beginning on 22 February 2018.

Fratelli Rossetti was founded in 1953 in Parabiago, a town just outside Milan, thanks to the visionary genius of Renzo Rossetti. The time was a turning point in Italy’s history with the country taking its first steps into the world of fashion as a serious commercial business. The company is currently headed by the second generation of the Rossetti family, brothers Diego, Luca and Dario who, through their passion and hard work, have steered Fratelli Rossetti to its 60th anniversary and beyond, always in pursuit of quality. With a long outstanding history, today the brand is known the world over as being synonymous with style: a shining example of the highest standards of craftsmanship.
