When Victoria Beckham is spotted in the same pair of designer shoes on innumerable occasions, we take note. The style maven, along with fellow fashionista Olivia Palermo, have been Instagramming and tweeting the life out of Italian cordwainer Francesco Russo’s chic heels, and naturally we’re now keen to add a pair to our burgeoning shoe collection.
With a serious stellar CV that includes cutting his cloth at Costume National before moving to Miu Miu, then Yves Saint Laurent, and for a time being creative director at Sergio Rossi, Russo finally took the plunge and launched his own label in 2013.
Working out of a Parisian studio, his flamboyant yet refined aesthetic has already made him one of the most exciting new accessory designers of the moment and earned him a celebrity following. Invest yourself in a pair of his feminine leather pumps (VB favours the cream colour), statement-making leopard print or timeless black to match with just about everything in your current wardrobe. The brand has just launched online here in the UK, so be one step ahead of the fashion set and snap up a pair of what might be the new Choo or Louboutin stand-in.
