Sergio Rossi is a personal designer favourite of mine, and I'm always particularly impressed with the summer collections, which fuse style and sex appeal with a cool, warm weather aesthetic. This season's collection does not disappoint - with nods to fashion's current obsession with plenty of high-backed, gold plated luxury and simplified strappy styling.

The unexpected return of gladiator sandals also makes an appearance in this collection, which includes ultra-high strappy sandals in sumptuous gold toned leather, a similar approach to the tried-and-tests style we've seen at Stuart Weitzman, whose most recent ad campaign featured Kate Moss wearing the sultry, super-high gladiators from the label's concurrent collection. This is the sexier style of gladiator so don't worry: there are no clompy criss-cross straps to be seen here.
