This December, NET-A-PORTER.COM will launch Italian designer, Francesco Russo’s eponymous label. Known for his exquisite and unique shoes which are made in Italy, Russo has created five exclusive styles to celebrate the new partnership. Using a combination of old and new silhouettes, Russo drew inspiration from Chinese lacquer, one of his obsessions and combined this with his classic leopard print calf hair to create the capsule which has been perfectly titled ‘Lacquered Leopard’.

Ida Petersson, senior buyer for shoes at NET-A-PORTER.COM says, “We are so excited to be working with Francesco Russo – his SS16 collection was one of the stands out of the season. He is a rare talent whose designs transcend beyond a particular season; they feel relevant and timeless, making every pair an investment. These exclusive styles have been designed specifically with the NET-A-PORTER customer in mind, each piece comes in a powerful colour palette of red, black and leopard – a must-have for every woman’s wardrobe.”

Francesco Russo, founder and creative director at Francesco Russo says, “Launching on                       NET-A-PORTER.COM and designing this exclusive collection was an extremely exciting project. Each pair was designed using contrasting materials; patent calf and leopard print pony skin giving my classic styles a rebellious edge.”

Prices start from approx. AED 2,500 and will be available on NET-A-PORTER.COM from December 18th.
