New design

In a moment when rethinking and new connections are necessary, the brand takes all the right steps and presents a consistent collection that is exuberant and elegant while responding to the needs of a variety of personalities and to the most diverse occasions.

The first thing that stands out is the rethinking of the logo: perfect timing for experimenting with new forms, and the choice of the new logo is graphic and bold, in chromed gold and solidly structured.

The Ecoblabber

Necessary to save a paragraph on its own for the re-make of an icon,  in the name of sustainability. Presented first in fall 2019, Giuseppe Zanotti unveils a new eco-friendly version of the Blabber, his signature minimal unisex sneaker.

As the first version, it is inspired by the iconic design of skater shoes, and that design is kept untouched: but the Ecoblabber is made of eco-conscious materials [hence the name – ed]. For this upgrade, Giuseppe Zanotti joined forces with Italian leading suppliers to grant a rage of bio-based or recycled materials that can guarantee both comfort and durability.

Ecoblabber is available in a low and high-top version, and features a polyurethane and polyester blend that is mainly crafted using recycled plastic bottles, with the intention to drastically reduce the CO2 emissions during the production process. 

It comes in a restrained color palette of black and white matched with colourful touches, juxtaposed  to silver and gold options that also employee pre-consumer recycled leather.

Each Ecoblabber, that is assembled with water-based glues and that doesn’t include any component that might be harmful for the environment, comes with a bio-based sole and organic cotton laces. 

To highlight the sustainable spirit of this model, Ecoblabber has

  • a dedicated logo where the Giuseppe Zanotti signature is framed by a revisited recycling symbol
  • its own certification by leading company CIMAC, the Italian leading partners of those footwear companies that want to reach the highest goals in terms of sustainability. 

Five more icons

The collection is a beautiful selection of pieces, shown in the majestic rooms of Zanotti’s showroom in Via Montenapoleone, and of course we are forced to make a selection and focus on some of the most significant elements. Only for the women’s range we meet a firework of exuberance and elegance where charming contrasts accompany the iconic creativity of this designer. Just give a look at Nordlyss

‘Nebula’ effect multicolor vinyl bootie with black patent leather inserts and leather sole with logo transparent plexi heel, Nordlyss is characterised by a postmodern and provocative line and a very interesting heel curved design.

1- Bebe

The spring summer 2022 collection truly reinvents the archive, digging in years of experience and contacts . The iconic Bebe strass platform sandals, homage to the 90ies parties, come with refreshing and colourful rhinestones on heels and platform.

2- Earthsine and Ejecta Plexi

Contrastful Earthshine Plexi sabot sandal reveals minimal lines and tribute the precise and impeccable elegance of Helmut Newton’s images.

Focus for this sandal is on forms and material: in particular, heels and the choice of vinyl.

A slim heel celebrates feminine curves, while the clear vinyl band gives a seductive touch, combined with a blunt geometric toe.

Vinyl is also the main chosen material for the Ejecta Plexi sandal, where the tradition of jeweled footwear is renewed by a metal logo buckle. Revisiting a model presented for the first time during the Spring / Summer 2000 collection.

Geometric sole and sculptural heel create a graphic and futuristic silhouette inspired by the lines of the Egyptian pyramids, while the all-over print decorates the raw-cut upper thanks to an innovative digital printing technique

Finally, to complete the collection with a touch of urban dynamism, the Zenas sneaker is a glamorous and cool reinterpretation of 60s tennis models. Enriched with the brand’s iconic metal plaque, Zenas combines a zebra pattern with fluorescent yellow accents in an exhilarating optical liveliness.

5 – Cobra Sneakers

Exclusive design, the new Cobra sneaker are light and a little bit bulky sneakers that reveal a 3D snake wrapped around the foot. The effect is impactful and sinuous. A must to notice the snake’s ruby eye.
