The first collection of the French designer from Romans sur Isére is a homage to fashion of the Sixties

11His mission is to design dreamy footwear, made with great attention to detail, fine workmanship and in prestigious materials. At only 25, Vincent Bottesi has totally embraced the traditional values of the French footwear region par excellence, Romans sur Isére where he comes from, adding a personal poetic/nostalgic touch that reflects the personality. After graduating in Fine Arts, Vincent has concentrated on accessories design, immediately becoming distinguished for the creative talent that in 2010 won him two first prizes in contests for footwear and leather goods design. The first collection under his own name is a real hit, thanks to the sophisticated sandal in two-tone leather with a curvy 12 centimetre heel and buttoned ankle strap that the designer named “Twiggie’Twelve” in honour of the ultra famous model of the ‘60s.

Now the spotlights point to his next collection that will be presented in Paris, during Who’s Next in January 2013.
