Um, WOW. There’s not really much else that needs to be said about these Gianvito Rossi pumps, is there? Maybe I’ll just give you all a few minutes to admire them, shall I?
As a longtime fan of Gianvito Rossi, these shoes come as no surprise: they’re very much in keeping with the often extravagant style we’ve come to associate with the brand, and are a true statement shoe, if ever I saw one. Actually, the red satin pump would make a statement all on its own: it was already a beautiful shoe, but that red ankle bow gives them that extra bit of ‘wow’ factor – not that they really need it, of course.
Net-a-Porter recommend wearing these with “everything from an evening dress to rolled jeans.” My response to that is that, unless you’re one of those effortlessly cool girls I’m always seeing on Instagram (You know, the ones who look absolutely amazing, but who you know would stick out like sore thumbs if they were to wear that outfit in “real life”, as opposed to photoshoot life?), you’re probably going to want to save these for special occasions: not just because of the price tag, but because that’s what the vast majority of us would probably do with a shoe like this. Of course, if you DO want to wear them with rolled jeans, then more power to you: I’m a big fan of the “jeans with amazing shoes” look, and there’s no denying that these fulfil the “amazing shoes” part of that formula.
If you don’t like pumps, these also come as a gold sandal (same giant bow, slightly different upper), and if you don’t like high heels, there’s also a flat sandal version too. And if you like all three of those, well, I hope your credit card has a very low interest rate!
