My dear fashionistas, welcome to the new summer fashion story on the Mr.M blog! The topic of today’s fashion story will be a famous Italian brand of shoes that I’m sure is recognizable to everyone because of its comfortable shoes that are made of the highest quality materials. Fratelli Rossetti footwear is fantastic for the reason that this brand makes classic shoes that are elegant and simply iconic, shoes for all times! You had the opportunity to meet their most famous model Brera for the first time in my Jordan fashion stories.
What is the story of this brand? In the middle of the 20th century, more precisely in 1945, Mr. Renzo Rossetti started his story from scratch, where he worked alone to cut leather for several types of sports shoes. His shoes were sold at the famous Brigatti store in Milan, one of the few remaining stores of its kind in the city. After a few years, Fratelli Rossetti saw success, but, wanting to develop further, they transferred the brands and equipment for this special production to Atala Sport in Padua.
So they decided to start their story again from the beginning and decided to switch to the production of classic shoes. Those were the years between 1952 and 1957, which witnessed the orientation and acquisition of new skills in the creation of women’s ballet flats and elegant, simple men’s footwear characterized by extremely flexible and high-quality workmanship. All this led to the creation of a small collection of men’s shoes with contours that differed from the various styles sold at the time. Renzo Rossetti consequently engaged in work that demonstrated his aesthetic sense and artistic perfectionism.
The story of the Fratelli Rossetti company is an inspiring story of a successful Italian family business that opened its doors in 1953. This is not just an ordinary company story, but a family story: the founder, Renzo Rossetti, and his wife, Lisetta, were dedicated to their work all their lives. The Fratelli Rossetti company is currently run by the second generation of the Rossetti family, the brothers Diego, Dario and Luca, who, due to their different roles and by developing their own different skills, have successfully brought their company to its 60th anniversary, always in search of quality and united by their passion with strict respect for tradition.
Fratelli Rossetti has a long tradition of “big little innovations”. In this company, tradition and quality have always gone hand in hand with insatiable curiosity and commitment to innovation. From the introduction of tassels and the invention of shoes designed to be worn without socks, to stylistic innovations and the launch of the “masculine” style, to the application of colors in unique chromatic shades. It was Renzo Rossetti who emphasized the importance of embracing new materials, styles and shapes: as early as the 60s, he was already experimenting with different color combinations on leather. Today, the company continues its research and development activities thanks to the knowledge of its craftsmen and the creative spirit of the styling department.
Fratelli Rossetti in its collections for men has timeless classic lines that you can find all year in their offer, some of the models are: Brera, Brera Sport, Hobo Sport, Yacht, La Giusta, Estate and the new line that you will get to know today – Green Side.
The Fratelli Rossetti Green Side line marks an important step on the way to respecting and sustaining the environment. The project begins with the launch of sports slippers that never neglect the historical values of the Fratelli Rossetti world, such as handwork and tradition. From the Spring-Summer 2023 collection, Green Side also conquers the festive line with one of the most representative models: the iconic Brera moccasins, which in this version stand out for their hand-knit mask with crochet technique, suede upper made of recycled material. material and for the sole made of recycled leather. In the slipper model, the sole is made entirely of natural latex, which makes the shoe versatile and comfortable. For both proposals, the inner lining is made of natural bamboo fibers and the removable insole is made entirely of Pet fibers, which guarantee high breath-ability and optimal moisture absorption. The cotton stitching is particularly impressive, emphasizing the appeal of the handmade product.
In today’s post, I present one of the Brera models from the Green Side line. Brera is the bohemian quarter of Milan where, in the sixties of the last century, sculptors, painters and writers struggled to leave their mark with a new language and new forms. The liberal and cosmopolitan spirit was the source of inspiration for “Brera”, a moccasin with tassels, a style revolution in a country that is just rediscovering its joy of life. Brera combines different materials and colors as a true work of art. The special composition of materials and shapes makes moccasins a successful chapter in the history of Fratelli Rossetti.
Based on environmental awareness, sustainability and craftsmanship, this Brera moccasin model from the Green Side project is also reflected in the iconic value and beauty of the Brera moccasin. The loafers you can see in today’s post are made of soft suede and have a hand-crocheted penny bridge, which emphasizes the exclusivity of Brera moccasins. These moccasins have a leather sole.

Originally from Trivero, the Loro Piana family started their family business in the wool trade at the beginning of the 19th century. In the second half of this century, the family moved its activities to Valsesia and founded the Fratelli Lora e Compagnia woolen mill, and then the Zignone & C. woolen mill in Quarona at the beginning of the 20th century. Engineer and founder of the Loro Piana brand, Mr. Pietro Loro Piana founded the company Loro Piana & C. in Quarona in 1924. Soon this company will celebrate its jubilee 100th anniversary of its existence and it will be an extraordinary celebration of the “first fashion century” of this extraordinary fashion house, which I am immensely looking forward to!
