Fratelli Rossetti brings some special newness to their collection for SS18 at Milan Fashion Week Mens. Aptly titled “Ocean Weave,” the shoe collection is woven by hand in fishing villages around Italy. Three kinds of weaves are present in the new collection: a large, perforated pattern, a zigzag and the Rossetti signature micro-weave. Additionally, the collection celebrates the 60th anniversary of the brand, which is still owned and run by the Rossetti family.
Each shoe in the collection is made from only the best leather and suede, ensuring you can comfortably wear the shoes without socks in the hot summer. The leather soles are also hand-painted in with the same colors as the rest of the shoe.
This season, the colors were rather unique. The tones, reflecting the title, were created specifically to mimic the colors of the ocean, like shades of the ocean, the sky, the sand and the greenish shrubbery. The presentation was set up specifically to feel the the ocean vibes, with models sitting upon ropes and rocks, Fratelli Rossetti shoes delicately place on their feet.
BDMOTP especially loves the bright greenish yellow loafer with the larger weave. Once of the most originally footwear pieces we’ve spotted for SS18, we can’t help but crave to walk the sandy shores in this stylish shoe.
