How Precious: Sergio Rossi releases the precious metal-laden, Cachet pump

Art Basel ushers in all kinds of interesting incarnations. Boundaries are crossed; innovative approaches to art and fashion are explored; even technology plays a huge role in the Basel circus. And participating in said circus, of course, is famed shoe brand Sergio Rossi with envelope-pushing creations: the 22 ct gold and antique silver leaf versions of the brand’s Cachet pump. Hand applied by expert artisans, the treasures are sure to be collectors’ items.

Traditional in aesthetic, this sky-high stiletto is being released in celebration of Art Basel Miami’s official opening on December 1, and will be exclusively available at the label’s Bal Harbour outpost.

$9,850, by special order; available at Sergio Rossi, Bal Harbour Shops, 9700 Collins Ave., 305-864-3643
