The stripes are the star of the shoes’ soles and the rugs, and are all special edition
April 2018 – Italian footwear company, Fratelli Rossetti, announces today the release of its new “Stripes Under Your Feet” collaboration with Milan-based company CC-Tapis. Two special edition moccasins with multicoloured soles will be available at Fuorisalone in Milan.
The collaborative project fuses two seemingly different worlds brought together to form a new creative synergy. This partnership evolved from the shared values between Fratelli Rossetti and CC-Tapis: their respect and use of the finest materials, their ability to combine classic techniques with contemporary flairs and their international focus. The connective threads feature white blending with mauve, pink and black to create a sunning stripe pattern.
The installation “Stripes under your feet” will be showcased in the Fratelli Rossetti flagship store windows at 1 Montenapoleone in Milan beginning Sunday, April 14, 2018 through the end of the Salone del Mobile on Sunday, April 22, 2018. An opening event, including wine tasting and DJ, will take place on the evening of Thursday, April 19 at 6:30PM.
Franciacorta, a sparkling wine company from the Province of Brescia, is the official partner for this event. Since the Expo 2015, Fratelli Rossetti has partnered with Franciacorta, two companies working to support and promote Italian-made quality and excellence. Throughout the evening, guests will have the opportunity to sample delectable glasses of Franciacorta wine from the Brut and Satèn varieties
cc-tapis was created in 2011 by Maison Chamszadeh, founded in 1943 and known in France for quality traditional Persian hand-knotted rugs. Its creative heart is found in Milan where, every day, cc-tapis applies a new approach to traditional methods: using untreated materials and innovative knotting methods and techniques. All cc-tapis rugs are completely hand-knotted by expert Tibetan artisans in Nepal. A strong respect for materials and for the culture of this ancient craft is reflected in the company’s eco-friendly approach to every step of the production process. Far removed from the idea of mass production, cc-tapis aims to offer a tailored service to those who understand and enjoy a high-end product, in which the months-long process of crafting each rug recounts the story of an ageless culture.
Franciacorta, Italy’s premier wine, produced exclusively via refermentation in the bottle, holds a DOCG status (Protected designation of origin). Born in the heart of the Lombardy region, amongst gentle morainic hills, Franciacorta has always been synonymous with quality and elegance.
Fratelli Rossetti was founded in 1953 by the visionary genius Renzo Rossetti in Parabiago, just outside Milan. At the time, a national fashion industry was just beginning to develop in Italy.
The company is now run by the brothers Diego, Luca and Dario from the second generation of the family. With their dedication and devotion, they have taken the company to its 60th anniversary and beyond, with a constant focus on quality at all times. Over the years, the brand has become synonymous with style in Italy and across the globe. It embodies the values of unparalleled craftsmanship.
