It’s interesting and uncanny for a brand, an Italian one at that, to transition from being known for its loud glitz and glam aesthetic, to a softer and more approachable clean look. Yet that’s precisely what Giuseppe Zanotti is doing this season, where elegance speaks louder than extravagance as Zanotti unveils his Spring/Summer 2024 collection. Celebrating his 30th year in the industry, Zanotti takes us on a journey where sophistication reigns supreme and the spotlight lies in his craftmanship.

Picture this: It’s Milan Fashion Week. Zanotti transforms the venue into a captivating space with opulent Rococo accents. Against a backdrop of velvety pink floors and vibrant purple lighting, the atmosphere is comes alive with something different. Clean lines and essential silhouettes take centre stage, inviting you to explore a world where every detail is thoughtfully crafted.

Drawing inspiration from the iconic designs of the ’90s, Zanotti presents a modern interpretation of glamour. You’ll find a sinuous allure of a stiletto heel as a patent leather sandal with a pointed silhouette, offering a contemporary twist on ’90s classics. With every step, a rhinestone torchon delicately wraps around the ankle, adding a touch of sophisticated glamour.

In another scene, envision a summery interpretation of the metropolitan bootie. Here, a four-strap patent leather sandal cage envelops the foot with a seductive embrace, exuding an air of effortless lightness. Meanwhile, mules steal the spotlight with their aerodynamic heel, crafted through an experimental lens that evokes a sense of suspension and weightlessness. But it’s not just about the shoes; it’s about the feeling they evoke. With a palette of ivory tones punctuated by flashes of red and metallic accents, Zanotti says yes to quiet luxury.

This season heralds the beginning of Giuseppe Zanotti’s narrative of fresh minimalism, where he feels an ever-growing urge to push the boundaries of creating each season, crafting styles meant to transcend time itself.
