The Wishlist: Giuseppe Zanotti SS17

The Wishlist: Giuseppe Zanotti SS17

Giuseppe Zanotti is a designer who understands the finer things in life. His collections reflect an appreciation for fast cars, Champagne and gold bullion – essentially the requisite trappings of a rock star circa 2001. He’s been known to do collaborations with the likes of Kanye West and Jennifer Lopez, who are both in possession of the reputations of bonafide divas (and rightly so). A little ostentatious, his designs are also refined, sleek and fashion-forward, and the SS17 collection is no different. “Men’s fashion has evolved so much that there are no more rules,” says Zanotti. “Men take more risks and experiment with their individual style. There’s a fluidity to fashion today. There’s a freedom of expression.” From classic Zanotti sneakers to loafers and sliders, the collection champions personal style and defies convention, much like their Italian maker. For traditional craftsmanship, detailed embellishment and contemporary design, look no further than Giuseppe Zanotti SS17. Here are our favourite styles from the collection.

THE CAMOUFLAGE LOAFERS

A sleek slipper/loafer hybrid, these Giuseppe Zanotti shoes are more streamlined than your average loafer. They have a sort of refined elegance about them, made utilitarian with a masculine, camouflage woven upper. Finished with gold horn ‘tassels’, they are at once artful and functional. Two for the price of one.

THE RUNNER LOW TOPS

Giuseppe Zanotti is a big fan of androgynous design, hence the gold hardware and embellishments strung across all of his men’s shoes. Break the mould with a pair of Zanotti runners. Sleek and lightweight, they’ll lift both casual and formal outfits out of the doldrums.

THE LEX MAY HIGH TOPS

A classic Zanotti silhouette cast in white leather and soft blue suede, the roguish Lex May High Tops are punctuated with blue studs to the heel and tongue. Typically distinctive, they’re trainers for a man who wants to add a little urban decadence to his footwear wardrobe.

THE BREK MID TOPS

It doesn’t get much better than a pair of slick, white high tops. An undisputed wardrobe essential, Giuseppe Zanotti elevates them to new heights of sophistication in ice-white calfskin leather. So much more than your average white sneaker, this pair makes those by other designers look like little more than plimsolls.

THE LOGO SLIDERS

Giuseppe Zanotti and his team had been championing luxe pool-side footwear long before everyone else jumped on the bandwagon. Don’t accept any imitations, instead channel your inner beach Adonis in these slick sliders, finished with only a subtle Zanotti flourish by way of his gold-scrawled signature. Smooth.
