Sergio Rossi founded his company in the 1950s in San Mauro Pascoli, Italy launching his eponymous brand in 1968. Primarily producing sandals for the patrons of riviera resorts like Rimini, Rossi first impacted on a broad audience with a simple yet new style called Opanca. Expanding rapidly from the 1980s to the millennium, opening stores in major cities across the world, Sergio Rossi also began to work alongside some of the major european fashion houses creating footwear for labels such as Versace, Dolce & Gabbana and Azzedine Alaïa. In late 2008, Francesco Russo was appointed Creative Director of the Sergio Rossi brand which has grown to incorporate womens and mens ready-to-wear, bags and accessories alongside its footwear.
