The first pair of shoes designed by Rapisardi was launched at the end of the 1950s in a momentous phase for the Italian fashion which, due to its craftsmanship, refined materials and unique style, conquered the center stage of the fashion industry.
Since the very beginning, Rapisardi’s creations stood out for their innovative characteristics, exclusive and practical at the same time. The brand entered the market of women’s footwear with a model of summer shoe whose topper was made of straw weave on a leather, wood or cork sole. These light, fitted sandals were designed for a modern woman who seeks elegance-in-motion.
It was Giancarlo Rapisardi who decided to employ straw weave, an inexpensive yet refined material that up until then was used in the production of decorative objects.
