SERGIO ROSSI – A Tribute to Gabriella Crespi
Casa Vogue e Sergio Rossi nella prestigiosa cornice di Palazzo Crespi ospitano una mostra di pezzi unici e riedizioni della celebre Gabriella Crespi, designer icona della Milano bene tra gli anni 60 e 70 che si ritirò proprio al culmine della carriera dopo aver conquistato il mondo con uno stile unico e ricercato molto vicino all’art deco, ma intriso di elementi e filosofie orientali. In questa occasione più unica che rara, la creatività del brand Sergio Rossi si intreccia con il suo stile, dando vita ad una collezione di scarpe in special edition.

  1. ciao Alessandro,bellissima idea questo post, hai fatto una selezione degna di nota.
    tantissimi davvvero tantissimi appuntamenti interessanti, troppi per me e per i miei gusti, non posso purtroppo essere in 10 posti come minimo nella stessa giornata, ecco sarò limitata ma questo aspetto del fuorisalone é davvero scomodo, davvero interessante oggi da Dexter in Piazza Piemonte la presentazione della prima collezione in collaborazione con l’architetto Sergio Bonifaccio di tre tavolini di design realizzati in materiali pregiati e metalli fresati a mano;))
