Fratelli Rossetti Revolutionizes the Classic Loafer

Crafted by Rossetti artisans, these timeless shoes get a twist that will upgrade any wardrobe.

Fratelli Rossetti aims to revolutionize the classic loafer, giving its traditional appearance a twist with new, three-layer soles. Crafted by Rossetti artisans, its timeless style will upgrade any wardrobe with modern refinement and unparalleled quality.

Three loafer designs are presented:  fringed, penny, and the iconic Brera with signature tassel. Rooted in tradition, all three loafers have thick lug soles.

The three layers of the sole are clearly visible: a leather welt, a colored micro midsole and a treaded base. The midsole that forms the second layer, always matches the color of the upper, which is hand painted using the Toledo technique. The Toledo technique begins with neutral-colored calfskin buffed by hand with vegetable dyes to create an end result of unique colorful  richness.  This season the colors of autumn woods and Nordic landscapes feature prominently. Shades from the dark green of forests, the blue/violet of Scandinavian skies, the rocky tones of fjords and spice shades such as cinnamon emphasize the craftsmanship and quality of these hand made products.  Available for Fall 2016.

Fratelli Rossetti was founded in 1953 by the visionary genius Renzo Rossetti in Parabiago, just outside Milan.  At that time, a national fashion industry was just beginning to develop in Italy.  Today, brothers Diego, Luca and Dario, from the second generation of the family, oversee the company. With their dedication and devotion, they have taken the company to its 60th anniversary and beyond. Around the globe, the brand is synonymous with style, embodying the values of unparalleled craftsmanship.  For more information, please visit www.fratellirossetti.com.
