Sergio Rossi pumps

Ancient Glamour by Sergio Rossi

History and craftsmanship continue to define Italian brand Sergio Rossi, with both being well evident in the label’s fall / winter 2012 /13 collection. The Genevieve studded pump exemplifies these characteristics, and is a true highlight of the collection.

Sergio Rossi pumpsSomewhat confusingly, a number of pumps in the collection share the name “Genevieve.” The yellow version you see here is made of 100% shad skin (for your daily dose of trivia, shad is a type of fish mainly found in freshwater). The pump is prominently studded on its vamp, sides and heel, in keeping with a trend we are going to see a lot more of this season.  The laminated effect and scale details are complemented by a 4.1 inch heel. This Genevieve is available from Sergio Rossi for $1,335.

All the Genevieves family are part of the Ancient Glamour subset of the Sergio Rossi fall / winter 2012 /13 collection. The collection itself was launched in April 2012 during Milan Fashion week. See FashionTV’s video of the launch below:
