Francesco Russo, formerly of YSL, has debuted his first collection for Sergio Rossi at Milan Fashion Week. And boy, is it something to behold. The snake-like collection has caught the attention of many due to its unusual coiled heel design. Apparently it is made from stainless steel, which is then heated to 1,200 degrees and finished off with rhinestones and python skin.

"I call it my serpent of light," explains Russo. [via Telegraph]
