Alain Gilles x Fratelli Rossetti: a Belgian-Italian collaboration for Milan Design Week

On the occasion of the Fuorisalone scheduled on the sidelines of the 60th edition of the Salone del Mobile in Milan (from September 5 to 1), the Italian brand Fratelli Rossetti presents a collaboration with Alain Gilles. Revisiting the Italian shoe while respecting the DNA of a house rich in a precious heritage, but also very modern in its technical and mixed approach to the shoe: a nice challenge co-orchestrated by Belgium is Design.

Alain Gilles signed a new version of the neoclassical Oxford shoe: a limited edition of 4 models (two for men and two for women) to which the designer added a round heel and structured geometric graphic patterns. For Alain Gilles, this project initiated last year, but whose launch was postponed following the pandemic, is an opportunity to apply a "new architectural dynamic" to a simple design, a true classic of the Tuscan label.

This limited-edition collection will be sold in stores in Milan, Brussels and Antwerp and on .
