The exhibition MASTERS HANDS' marks out the new direction in which Fratelli Rossetti is heading, combining its heritage with forms of contemporary culture linked to craftsmanship and to the brand.

The photographic exhibition MASTERS' HANDS consists of a series of unpublished images snapped by the legendary photographer Ferdinando Scianna on different occasions (some of these snapped in Parabiago for Fratelli Rossetti), all linked to one another by the gestures that see hands as the protagonists.

Genesi, as seen above, is the men’s shoe taking centre stage in the Fall/Winter 2011-12 collection, the hallmarks of which include the traces left by the hands of the master craftsmen. One single cut of the leather, 8 days of work and 25m of cotton thread. The defining feature is the concealed stitching technique: the leather is moulded and sewn on the inside to conceal the stitches, which are usually seen on the surface. As a result there is only the faintest trace of the thread.

The MASTERS’ HANDS exhibition is being held in the Fratelli Rossetti Gallery in Piazza San Carlo 2, Milan. Open to the public from 18 to 22 January 2011, opening times 10.00 - 19.00.

COLORS 79 is all about collecting. People like to surround themselves with objects, it’s part of our nature. Whether they are useful, decorative, beautiful, ugly, common or rare, we can’t help but leave clues everywhere as to our identity. Our objects reflect who we really are, and who we want to be, so says Peter Gabriel in the introduction to the book “COLORS Extra/Ordinary Objects” published by Taschen back in 2000.

Paolo has more than 500 ties, his room is full of them. This is just a small part.

Collecting stickers, memories and images from around the world.

COLORS 79 Collector is for sale at newsagents, bookshops and in the App Store from mid-December 2010 in four bilingual editions (English + Italian, French, Spanish or Korean).
