For F.W. 2017 Giuseppe Zanotti presents a men’s collection exuding iconic fashion references and nuances. Setting a suave and elegant tone, the designer skillfully applies new ideas, whilst ensuring the brand’s creative spirit and signature handwriting are ever-present. The result sees inspirational designs which are subtle in style, but positively ooze individuality.
The black calfskin loafer with a tapered toe is inspired by English elevated tailored style. The form is lightweight and ultra soft. The low cut makes it perfect for teaming with colourful socks, nodding to the English eccentric. The silk tassel and slightly androgynous shape make this style a real must-have for the season.
Refined proportions, elongated forms and the moccasin silhouette feature in the elegant ankle boot with side slits, reminscent of the Chelsea-boot style. The iconic metal toe cap becomes a hallmark, whilst the black stretch suede uppers make for a versatile fit.
Comfort and flexibility also distinguish the more classic moccasin featuring leather sole and metal detailing for threading the laces. An essential style inspired by the 1960’s trend and reinterpreted with particular attention to the choice of materials, such as the contemporary crocodile embossing, distressed by hand to give the colour greater depth.
Evening slip-ons become timeless masterpieces. The uppers reveal graphic designs and exquisite embroidery. Like small fragments of light, crystals in a variety of shapes and sizes punctuate soft black velvet loafers. Perfect for the tuxedo look, or worn for a contrast effect with distresssed jeans.
An innovative fusion of biker style and combat boots creates a practical and sporty combination. The low-cut boot in warm shearling has a solid rubber sole and statement zips on the sides in burnished brass.
In the more traditional version, the swallow embroidery is innovatively teamed with rubber soles and central zips in gilded metal.
The Giuseppe Zanotti Design sneakers collection is expanded. The running shoe base is combined with calfskin inspired by technical materials, featuring three-dimensional details and incisions. High-tech fabrics create further texture effects which are soft to the touch.
The timeless mid-cuts are updated in faded velvets are teamed with traditional suedes and patents in a balanced contrast. The tone-on-tone embroidery on the khaki leather sneakers evokes a sea urchin. Warm and comfortable, the novelty bootie style sneaker with leather laces and signature metal bar is available with the runner base and offered in both shearling and suede.
