Flats, stilettos, and crystal-embellished clogs are topped with horn-like cones, recurring motifs throughout AREA’s latest collection, inspired by tetrahedral forms including pyramids and spikes.
Made in Italy by Sergio Rossi paraded during New York fashion week on the catwalk of Area, the design studio based in the Big Apple, with the special ‘AreaX Sergio Rossi‘ capsule of 20 models. The collaboration with Area is not the first haute couture collaboration. Sergio Rossi, who passed away in 2020, produced shoes for Dolce & Gabbana, Versace and Alaïa in the 1990s and created the heels of the protagonists of Fellini’s masterpieces such as La Dolce Vita and Roma.
The campaign, entitled ‘(Obsessions) Shoes’, was shot in New York by Collier Schorr, edited by Katie Burnett and stars model Maaike Klaasen. AREA x Sergio Rossi will be available to buy from February 2023, online at sergiorossi.com and area.com and at selected retailers.
