THE SEARCH BY DRAKE DOREMUS
Posted on October 5, 2012 by Anna Torossi
When you are just a little girl, your dream is living in a fairytale lost in a great forest. Of course your prince is coming and rescuing you. When you are little girl you also try your mother’s clothes and her shoes. Oh those high heels, the dreaming of being an adult, to wear what you want when you want. Now that I’m a so-called grown up, though I always feel a little like a child inside, when I saw the film for the new Sergio Rossi campaign I was thrown back in my childhood dreams.
Directed by Drake Doremus, “The Search” is a short film presenting the Spring/Summer 2013 collection. We can see a girl, maybe from an another world, searching for something in a forest, following a map. She looks like she is moving in a dream, with the light passing through the trees’ branches illuminating her. She wears these amazing shoes, high heeled and embellished with graphic designs and precious decorations. You look at her feet, moving through the trees and you are captured by the colors, the simple, yet sophisticated geometric decorations that adorn those heels. Searching and searching. Will she ever find what she’s looking for?
