SS 2018 COLLECTION
The Giuseppe Zanotti SS 2018 collection conjures up the atmosphere of an endless summer on tropical islands and exclusive poolside parties. The designer borrows the spirit and hues of the warmest season of the year, elevating them to create a playful, versatile and vibrant collection.
The ’90s provide the key reference point: daring colors, feminine silhouettes and glamorous effects. The aesthetic is unmistakably Giuseppe Zanotti with creations that are delicate, minimal and refined.
The supple wedge heel which simulates the curves of the foot is designed to resemble walking on water. The PICARD SHINING in silver leather is the result of skilful analysis of form and structural balance. Crystals create subtle reflections that blend in with the transparency of the vinyl. The dazzling effect is also featured in the CASSIDY flat slide, which combines perspex with the metallic hue of the sole.
The bold, eclectic nature of the collection is defined by the KENDRA, a boot that can be worn two ways . A zipper boot in soft black nappa leather, it is enhanced by silver metal detailing and corset lacing that evokes the provocative appeal of the ‘90s. The featured zip allows the two elements to be worn together or separately, revealing its dual elegance – part bootie, part over-the-knee boot.
The same dual principle is seen on the ALEESHA sandal. The gold serpent anklet gives added allure to the black satin or gilded leather mule. The gold accessory is made with tubular mesh and is enhanced with crystals. The matching clutch bag of the same name is interpreted in matte suede, with a similar gold serpent embellishment.
