    Fratelli Rossetti presents “Design at your heels” a limited-edition sandal, handmade & heartmade with Lebanese designer Nada Debs

    April 2019 – Fratelli Rossetti chose the Fuorisalone to present a limited edition characterized by a heel handmade & heartmade, co-designed with Beirut designer Nada Debs. Sixty exclusive pieces in two versions – off white and red nubuck – will be available only at Fratelli Rossetti boutiques in Milan, Beirut and online.

    Nada Debs, exploring the signature craft of contemporary mother-of-pearl inlay in natural solid walnut wood, creates a unique heel featuring a zig-zag pattern. The lines of the illustration symbolize the heartbeat of Milan and Beirut, two buzzing sister cities, both creative hubs on the world design map.

    I met Nada on one of my travels to Beirut, a city that I love for its intellectual vivaciousness” says Diego Rossetti, President of the Milanese brand. “I visited her studio and became fascinated with her ability to combine design and craft, values that we shared. This is how this limited edition was born”.

    Nada Debs will also be taking over the windows design of the flagship store at 1, Montenapoleone in Milan from Friday, April 5th and throughout the following days of Salone del Mobile until Sunday, April 21 2019.

    On Thursday, April 11ththe boutique host an opening event with a DJ-set and wine tasting, starting at 6:30PM. The wine partner for the event will be Guido Berlucchi, which shares with Fratelli Rossetti the same quality-driven pursuit and Made-in-Italy qualities. During the evening it will be possible to taste Berlucchi ’61 Franciacorta Satèn, a wine that is soft, mellow and silky on the palate: an exceptional choice for an aperitif, both inside and outside the glass.

    Nada Debs is a Lebanese designer living and working in Beirut. Nada grew up in Japan, studied design at the Rhode Island School of Design in the United States and has spent significant periods of time living and travelling the world, finding connections between different cultures. In her work, each detail recalls one of her experiences. In essence, she captures the power of the human hand to tell stories that touch the heart. She calls her approach: handmade & heart made.

    Fratelli Rossetti was founded in 1953 in Parabiago, a town just outside Milan, thanks to the visionary genius Renzo Rossetti.

    Fratelli Rossetti Renovated Store

    Fratelli Rossetti is celebrating the reopening of its boutique in ABC Achrafieh. The craft techniques used to create Fratelli Rossetti footwear inspired the composition, design and materials in the new concept store.

     

    The craft colouring and processing techniques used on the leather for the footwear are brought to mind by the old, faded teak flooring and the Turkish rugs, which are naturally dyed and washed out deliberately to bring out the original patterns.

     

    The handmade decorations and resins combine with the brushed concrete wall in tobacco, dove grey and chestnut hues to produce highly varied surfaces and colours. They reflect the multiform nature of craft products, which may be perfectly made but will still be full of imperfect and irregular details that make them unique.

     

    The chrome metals and the burnished brass used in the display backdrops give the boutique a sophisticated allure that is reminiscent of the superior, high-quality materials selected for Fratelli Rossetti’s craft products.

Lange & Söhne. Since its first appearance in 1999, A. Lange & Söhne has continuously extended its presence in Middle East markets.
