Russo is set to take over the post from Edmundo Castillo and will be in charge of producing the men and women's shoes, bags and accessories. He says, 'I am honoured to be able to put my experience to the benefit of a brand such as Sergio Rossi: an icon of style that is at once historical and strongly comtemporary and that stands out for it's craftsmanship and quality in the world of Made In Italy Luxury products.'
His first collection for the brand will go on sale for A/W 2009. If you can't wait that long to see what he has in store then check out this season's shoes at Yves Saint Laurent, where he has been working alongside Stefano Pilati since 2000. Before that he also designed for Miu Miu and Costume National, so we have high hopes of what his collections will have to offer.
