ROME MEMO ON FASHIONS 
Heels are admitted to Roman society - when they bear the mark of Frattegiani at 50, via Sistina. Most exclusive are his famous porcelain heels specially designed by Florentine craftsmen. 
These platforms and spikes in pastel-toned embossed flowers are often matched by three-dimensional porcelain blossoms on the toe. Most sophisticated are the plain gold heels with incrusted star motifs on black ballet pumps. 
Surfaces of other Frattegiani heels are inspired by artists who put on paint with a knife-rough shaggy slices of color that meet and combine in abstract shapes.
The same technique in gold resembles crumpled lame set with semi-precious stones in every fold.
