Giussepe Zanotti Presents The Coralli Collection
The Giuseppe Zanotti Icons project is back with an exclusive third drop entitled Coralli, Jewels of the Sea series is a summer story brought to life through two exquisitely crafted silhouettes. Inspired by two archival styles - the Spipiott sandal (2004) and the Coralli wedge (2005) - the Coralli are intricately crafted, richly embellished shoes that are once timeless and of-the-moment; playful and sophisticated. In other words, the perfect pairs for summer’s return and women’s reawakening to glamour.
The first in the series is a sleek thong crafted in gold leather and featuring a cheerful, colorful, crystal-encrusted fish at the center. The second, a silver leather sandal (available in both a heel and a flat), features gorgeously sculpted coral designs, both with crystals and in coral’s signature bold color.
“The blue sea twinkling in the sun; the colors of the tropics and the optimism of nature are all brought to life through these two fantastical shoes,” says Giuseppe Zanotti. “These sandals not only epitomize everything I love about designing glamour, color, optimism, embellishment but are particularly relevant for the summer in which many women will be stepping out and returning to the world. They represent the hope and optimism we all share.”
To celebrate the launch, the House is once again collaborating with artist and activist Laetitia Ky. Known for her complex, ironic and often thought-provoking hair sculptures, Ky has created new pieces inspired by Jewels of the Sea. “How can you not feel more confident when wearing these creations?” asks Laetitia Ky. “The color palette, the imagination, the craft - they all come together in super chic shoes.”
