Giuseppe Zanotti’s Fall 2018 Rainbow Sneakers Are a Technicolor Dream

Versatility was the watchword for Giuseppe Zanotti’s fall ’18 men’s collection, presented today on the first day of Milan Men’s Fashion Week.
And it wouldn’t be a Zanotti collection without a curveball, which this season took the form of a rainbow sneaker. “I love black, but these sneakers will be delivered in June,” the designer told FN. “There’s no more winter and summer, so it reflects that.”
Each section of the shoe has been hand-decorated with a different color. “This final result is more emotional than when it’s done via an industrial process,” Zanotti noted. “It costs nearly 40 percent more, but it’s 300 percent more beautiful.”
The rest of his collection drew on elements from streetwear, sport, biker, combat and rock ‘n’ roll. “It’s a new interpretation of our black universe, using our codes along with memories from my own generation,” said the designer.
Particular models that epitomized the theme included biker style mid-calf boots where the top could be removed, turning them into a pair of ankle boots. “There’s a zipper just like on a biker jacket, so you can transform them into a combat boot,” he explained, giving FN a quick demonstration lest there be any doubt.
