MILAN — Giuseppe Zanotti is launching the Backstage capsule collection for fall.The mini collection includes two styles featuring a special flocked finishing. The “Unfinished” is a midtop sneaker, available for men, women and children, showing Zanotti’s signature double side zips and contrasting laces, while the sensual “Miss Unfinished” leather sandal reveals a curvy wedge with an invisible heel.“This sandal recalls the silhouette of a woman,” said Zanotti. “There’s a harmony to the sculptural design. It is as if there is an imaginary line that extends from the heel to the ankle and it acts as an extension of the leg, elegantly lifting a woman up.”The two shoe styles, along with a unisex leather pouch, will be on sale in a special hot pink edition from June 12 at the Giuseppe Zanotti boutiques, as well as at the brand’s online store. Retail prices range from $585 for children’s sneakers to $995 for the women’s sandal.The same designs will be available in additional colors, including vibrant purple, dark gray, navy and electric blue, starting from September.At the end of May, Zanotti revealed its new fall advertising campaign.Photographer Mario Sorrenti portrayed Bella Hadid in a New York studio. The images feature Hadid posing on a minimal burgundy set enriched by a few geometric elements, introducing a touch of modernism.On the same set, Sorrenti also photographed model Miles McMillan wearing the “Hayden” suede sneaker with metallic details, as well as the “Claude” suede boot featuring a chunky sole.Zanotti will unveil his new spring 2018 men’s footwear collection at Milan Men’s Fashion Week on June 17.
