The Giuseppe Zanotti Fall 2018 women’s collection presented a new interpretation of the intrinsic style that has continuously set the brand apart.
“My women change completely from the day to the night. Their uniform is totally different,” the designer said. His new collection is aptly titled “Bonjour Nuit.”
Whilst seemingly contradictory and irreverent, the new designs has a distinctly transversal approach, which provides the defining characterictics for the collection. Statement styles included suede sandals adorned with crystals, plexiglass and purple feather detailing. A new geometric heel, in gold or steel, was paired with soft stretch leather boots.
The designer offered an array of convertible boot styles — a growing trend at Milan Fashion Week — that were crafted to take the wearer from day to night. Removable zippers turned boots into booties, and above-the-knee looks were designed to serve as pants.
The mostly all-black color palette was striking, with pops of blue, silver and gold incorporated throughout.
A clip from Giuseppe Zanotti’s Fall video — on display in his showroom at Milan Fashion Week today — perfectly captured the essence of his new collection and vision for the season. A scantily-clad blonde bombshell, who’s wearing slouchy suede boots covered in crystals, is seen swinging on chains from the ceiling — mere moments after she is depicted in a more subdued setting.
