New Collection From Fratelli Rossetti Taps American Hip Hop Influences
From the Robb Report Luxury Newswire
Fratelli Rossetti introduces Brera Sport and Hobo Sport for Spring/Summer 2015: two of the most iconic men's items by the Milanese brand now flaunting their lifestyle credentials.
The collection is built on crossovers: the female world burst into the male sphere, in an unprecedented blend of craftsmanship and technical know-how that pays tribute to the rhythm, rhymes and break-dancing of the hip hop scene. There are 20 different Hobo and Brera Sport designs; colors range from natural tones to the quintessentially vibrant hues of street style, such as turquoise, green and orange. The deerskin leather is as soft as a second skin, and every item produced is unique thanks to the manual application of watercolors with a pad, using the “Toledo” technique. The rubber soles are a new feature and part of the combination of outstanding Italian production and boundless urban taste. For free spirits who love to live life to the full.
The tassels on the iconic Brera loafers by Fratelli Rossetti are legendary. Once introduced by Renzo Rossetti in the 1970s, they revolutionized the male wardrobe. In keeping with their maverick identity, these loafers have continued to evolve now featuring a comfortable rubber sole.
Hobo shoes are lace-ups without laces. They were launched in 2010 and have already become a must. They are a mix between Oxford and Derby shoes, to be worn undone and without laces, or even with them. The Hobo design is inspired by the nomad in all of us; the rubber soles mean that the shoes are extremely versatile. For more information, visit www.fratellirossetti.com.
