MEN’S SS 2019 COLLECTION
MILAN – The Giuseppe Zanotti Spring / Summer 2019 men’s collection breaks the limitations of a customary seasonal approach. Its seasonless style transcends from urban city to coast, summer to winter, breaking down every barrier with its modern, eclectic and versatile language. The result sees a reinvention of the brand’s signature designs, giving them a new lease of life.
In an exclusive new take on the loafer and slip-on, the all-new city loafer blends traditional English style with a contemporary urban look. Soft calfskins, light-weight satin and unlined suedes are tinted with inky blue, black and hazelnut hues. The metal detailing includes gold and steel accents on the classic Gold Panther style, new logo buckles and a cleverly veiled reference to the designer’s initial.
English style inspiration is also seen on the lightweight boots in unlined suede, intended for fairer days. The silhouette appears solid but the texture is light, allowing flawless fit and comfort.
The weekend designs feature uppers in heavy-weave canvas. The complete absence of heel support presents a dual purpose – a shoe and a sabot, in a nod to the espadrille. The supple rubber sole combines innovation with practicality and comfort. The colours are deep: tan, cool beige and muted blue.
The gem sandals with leather or rubber soles in classic black and white are timeless, yet, with a novelty touch. The subtle balance of the crocodile ring detailing on the Franciscan style sandals renders them unique.
The innovative spirit of the new sneakers stands out through the deliberately exaggerated proportions and a complete absence of a seasonal approach. Shoes with an unfinished look, color effects and distressed materials are often juxtaposed in no apparent order.
Leathers and technical fabrics are teamed with metal used for a three-dimensional embroidery as well as denim, jute, canvas and fleece creating a skilfully orchestrated unexpected fusion of ideas. The Light Jump sneaker is updated with a colored elastic mesh and the brand’s unmistakable three-dimensional effect applied to the materials used.
