MILAN, Italy—For the Spring Summer 2020 season, Giuseppe Zanotti proposes a reimagined take on its signature elegance and femininity, reinterpreting its House codes with unexpected details. A chic unfinished effect runs throughout the entire collection, bringing to the fore bold graphics, innovative proportions and uncommon hardware.
A collection at ease with every detail masterfully crafted to create shoes that excite, surprise and break the mold. Sandals—both flat and stiletto—feature large silk bows that recall the exaggerated silhouettes of couture pieces, making the shoe the true protagonist of each and every outfit.
Flowers—maxi or mini—are a recurring, engaging element throughout the collection. Worked over a flame, just as in the past, the collection’s leather lilies and suede roses, among others, are the results of true Italian artisanship. Also found in spring’s bounty— calla lilies and camellias,delicately covered in a multitude of crystals, grow like blooms on the season’s key styles.
One of the collection’s most statement-making shoes is a mule that stands out for almost disappearing. Crafted from a transparent vinyl and finished with a heel covered in translucent crystals, the shoe casts the foot in a kind of eternal suspension.
When it comes to the color palette, the collection alternates between deep, rich blues to golden yellows and bold fuchsias balanced with warm, neutral hues. Heels run both high and low, from towering stilettos to demure kitten heels. Different shapes along with mid-range heights offer chic day options.
The collection’s array of materials is vast, selected for both a traditional appeal and an innovative twist. From suede and nappa to vinyl, laminate, satin latex, iridescent materials and other high-tech fabrics, the line-up is unparalleled.
For sneakerheads, a new edition arrives this spring season: the Nidir. The newest lace-up features a 5-centimeter heel and has a slightly retro feel. Crafted with a stripped-back, ‘90s-inspired, minimalist aesthetic, the Rory marks a return to a feminine bon ton sneaker.
When it comes to accessories, the standout of the Spring Summer 2020 collection is the bucket bag. Crafted from raw edged leather and finished unlined, the effect is an incredibly soft, balanced bag, wonderfully nuanced.
