’Sergio Rossi Meets Memphis’ in Milan
Now that the weather in Milan is officially frosty, guests of Sergio Rossi were more than happy to gather inside the cozy, Christmas-lit confines of 10 Corso Como for the Italian footwear brand’s homage to Memphis design.
Creative Director Francesco Russo, whose Spring 2013 collection was inspired by the bold graphics of the Milanese design collective, oversaw the ’Sergio Rossi Meets Memphis’ installation in Corso Como’s upstairs gallery, where fashion snuggled up happily with design.
Displayed on black and white pedestals covered in signature Memphis patterns, the Sergio Rossi shoes were alluringly set off by vintage glassware and table top items, loaned from Galleria Memphis di Milano.
After the exhibit, Russo and Sergio Rossi CEO Christope Melard hosted an intimate dinner downstairs for guests such as Franca Sozzani, Carla Sozzani, Nina Yashar, Andrea Pompilio, Teresa Missoni, Luca Guadagnino, and Saturnino.
It’s been awhile since we’ve eaten at Corso Como 10 and the report card came back stellar: full-flavoured, soft pillows of mozzarella di buffala cheese were followed by a fresh tartar of tuna with hearty chunks of ripe avocado (rarer than an oil well in Milan), pumpkin filled ravioli and the best panettone in town, handpicked from Pasticceria Marchesi and served with a soft, sweet cream. Our stomachs are officially ready for Mama’s holiday spread.
