Petar Petrov Spring 2018 Solar Bootie Patent Leather

Petar Petrov Solar booties | 4″ / 100mm heel | available in lavender at Net-A-Porter and white at Forward by Elyse Walker.

Petar Petrov “believes that the finest fabrics, leathers and materials create a products ‘value’. He has learned from his previous clients by always keeping the modern woman in mind. Independence, individuality and taste for the unexpected are ways to describe Petrov’s distinctive designs.” The Solar bootie is made from glossy patent lavender leather embellished with a studded counter heel. There is also a chunky 100mm block heel, skinny pointed-toe and back-zip. We would rock these booties with midi dresses, cropped jeans or tailored pants.

Giuseppe-Zanotti-Design-logoIt’s hard to believe that Giuseppe Zanotti’s twenty year road to success was not paved in stiletto-friendly golden cobblestones. He reminisced to WWD, “I started with stilettos that were superglam, superfeminine and sexy — and the business was a flop. For the first two or three seasons, it was a tragedy.” With the ink still damp on his LMVH partnership and an ever-growing fanbase, it’s hard to envision a fashion world bereft of his sleek and sexy footwear. It makes you want to go into your closet, pick up your favorite Zanotti stiletto – at least four inches high – and feel thankful that we live in an age of sass, verve, and sartorial savviness.

So, how does Giuseppe Zanotti celebrate twenty phenomenally successful years in fashion? Not with a tell-all book or autobiographical movie, but – as per our expectations from the Italian footwear maestro – with more shoes; a four part delightful capsule collection, to be precise. Taking inspiration from the past while looking to the future is innovative and clever, a way to pay homage to those who were with him at the start of his journey to new coming fans that can’t get enough of his trademark snake embellishments.

With the gorgeously glamorous Spring 2014 collection still fresh in our minds (and hearts, and dreams…you get the picture), we were wondering how those exotic and quintessential Zanotti themes would appear in an autumnal context. If we had any doubts that he still had it (we didn’t, this is hypothetical), they would have been swept away by golden snake-embossed leather slingback stilettos and gotta-look-twice red quilted leather moto heels.

Glitter, suede, and python-embossed leather – oh my! This collection is one to start budgeting for, carrying designs fit for every lifestyle and fashion twist. From the stunning geometric suede and rhinestone-embellished booty to the golden leafy filigree on an open-toed sandal; from the glittery flat boot to the crimson mule; just when you think Zanotti can’t top his last collection, he finds a way to make you lust after a pair of kitten heels. And, really, is that not real power? In addition to the flattering and statement making silhouettes, there is a plethora of dainty silver chains, buckles, calf hair, snake emblems, and gold plating to make sure that one look from onlookers will  have them keeling over in envy.

If these designs are any indication of the genius of Zanotti, we can only imagine the adept hand and skill used to craft his 40th anniversary. That’s just around the corner, right?
