Magenta is the boot par excellence. At first sight it is both simple and linear.
In actual fact, its “classic” style – as with ancient artworks – is the result of considerable, painstaking work in which accessory elements are done away with to attain the essence, the perfect form.
Observe the strap: thick and without stitching, which would add pointless detail.
Note the welt, the reinforcement between the sole and the uppers: it is wheeled precisely to give it a slightly extended form.
Once the three pieces that give Magenta its initial form have been sewn together, the boot is then “formed”, namely shaped and hot-trimmed.
Its clasp, which has been widely imitated over the years, is now Fratelli Rossetti Patented.
