Francesco Russo created a bunch of iconic pieces; from the Cherry sandals and the Chinese Lacquered Wedge to the Cage boots that made YSL a go-to labels for statement footwear. Finally in 2013 he launched his eponymous label and made his atelier at n.8 Rue de Valois the centre of his idea of extreme luxury that for Francesco is the total attention to the client’s desires. This attention is embodied in the two main services provided in the atelier, respectively launched in 2014 and 2016: Made to Order (the unique opportunity to order custom version) and the Patina (an hand dyeing process for the shoe).
He traces his passion for ultra-feminine shoes back from childhood.
