Giuseppe Zanotti - Women’s and Men’s Spring/Summer 2022 Collection

MILAN - Rediscovering the heritage with the eye projected into the future. For the Spring/Summer 2022 season, Giuseppe Zanotti interprets memories and suggestions collected across his career to present an exciting collection, relevant for today’s consumers and rooted in his continuous research for creativity and manufacturing excellence. In the women’s range, multiple inspirations collide in an exuberantly elegant offering responding to the needs of different personalities and diverse occasions. Echoing the flamboyancy of 90s’ glamorous fashion parties, the Bebe Strass platform sandal stands out with its towering silhouette. A rainbow of multicolor rhinestones covers the heel and the platform for a sophisticated take on the bling-bling look.
This creates a charming contrast with the minimal shape of the Earthshine Plexi mule, whose essential lines evoke the sharp elegance of Helmut Newton’s images. A bevelled geometric toe is combined with slender heel in this flattering design, featuring a transparent vinyl strap adding an extra touch of seductive femininity. Vinyl is also crafted to build the Ejecta Plexi pointed-toe sandal. The bejeweled footwear tradition is here revamped through a new edgy metallic Logo buckle that, like a melted gold nugget, blends into the upper shoe for an organic effect. Revisiting a style that Giuseppe Zanotti presented in the Spring/Summer 2000 collection, the Tutankamon sandal blends past and future. If the edgy, futuristic silhouette, showing a geometric sole matched with a sculptural heel, is inspired by Egyptian pyramids, the suggestive allover print decorating the raw-cut upper is obtained through cutting-edge digital printing.
Completing the offering with a dynamic city vibe, the Zenas sneaker is a glamour and cool interpretation of the 60s tennis style. Enriched with the brand’s iconic metallic shoe plate, the sneaker sports a graceful silhouette rendered in a zebra pattern embellished with a neon yellow touch. The brand’s signature combination of forward-thinking design and unapologetic decorativism also define the men’s collection. If a tone-on-tone maxi chain embellishes the Adric combat boot, presented in a cool pink tone, the new Cobras sneakers feature a 3D cobra snake wrapping around the shoe body creating a sinuous silhouette. Finding a balance between tradition and innovation, the Euro Loafer crafted from varnished leather treated to obtain a mat rubber-like effect stands out with vibrant color matches.
