Giannico-Spring-2016Set up the margarita station, bring out the donut pool floats, slip on your tiny bikini, lather up with sunscreen and turn up the reggae beats because it’s summer! At least that’s what the Giannico Spring/Summer 2016 Collection is celebrating.

The Eternal Summer Collection is inspired by cocktail-sipping under an umbrella in Hotel Martinez in Cannes, taking a dip in the Beverly Hills Hotel pool or super stylish Jackie O walking down the picturesque streets of Capri. Giannico’s collection is definitely packed with happy sunshine.

The vibrant color palette perfectly captures the electrifying spirit of the season. From zippy shades of yellow, orange and fuchsia, to refreshing sorbet hues of sky blue and baby pink, prep yourselves for an unforgettably dreamy summer. Created by the talented young designer Nicolò Beretta (born in Milan in 1996), the line really does capture his unabashed enthusiasm for color and style, with a hint of romanticism.

Reminiscent of beach umbrellas, white and yellow striped-prints decorate the eye-catching sandals and stilettos, while the tropical print of banana leaves gives mules, sandals and boots its summer stamp. The Marina flats and pumps in nautical blue are fun and flirty with its tiny bow or little bouquet of pastel-colored flowers crafted from vintage swimGiannico-shoes-Summer-2016 caps. There’s also a pop of animal print here and there, fiercely adorning the cap of a wedge sandal or the platform of a block heel pump.

One of our favorite twists on the summer shoe is the Super Lola. Your classic nude pumps just got some summer lovin’. The 110mm-heels with quilted velvet insoles get peppered with patent leather fuchsia kisses. Mwah!

The Lolita pointed-toe ballet flats are like shiny pink gumballs you’d love to wear with a sundress. They will definitely be a sweet and cheery addition to any shoe collection.

We can’t neglect the fact that there are summer nights too. When the sun sets and the large moon and sparkling stars transform into a disco ball with surrounding twinkling lights, dance to the rhythm of summer in a sexy pair of Madison open toe pumps in midnight black accented with a cheetah print heel.

Cheers to summer and fabulous pairs of shoes to celebrate with!

About the author: Romina Tobias is a freelance fashion and lifestyle writer who is also a hopeless shoe-addict. She thinks her 5’4″ height and her love for long walks make her deserving of all the stilettos, pumps, sandals and ballet flats in the world. If only the cupcakes she expertly bakes can be traded in for a new pair (or two, or hopefully, more). 

Garcon-leather-boot-Gianvito-Rossi-Fall-2014It takes a lot of guts to go into the footwear industry when your father is a veritable accessories virtuoso. After all, those are big shoes to fill! However, Gianvito Rossi, son of Sergio Rossi, has taken the challenge in stride and paved a way for his own brand to be front and center in the luxury shoe market. Drawn to classic designs with a subtle, yet unmistakable edge, his collections are always the perfect mix of sophisticated and sexy. Unsurprisingly, his Fall 2014 collection embodies everything he thrives on, from elegant statement makers to staples that will never leave your wardrobe rotation.

Inspired by “the cowgirls of long ago”, the palette this time around is the epitome of autumnal comfort – for example, cream spliced with black, a warm tan that’s reminiscent of the best latte you’ve ever had, and a burgundy that is so rich, you can practically picture the rustling leaves it was inspired by.

The collection is brought to life through contrasting that myriad of hues; the way the tan contrasts against the delicate black shaping, and hints of metallic pumpkin transforms an ankle booty into a total game changer, making the shoes stunning and versatile. The touches of calf hair cow print woven into the collection? Seamless and never too much, ideal for a day at the office and a date with the girls afterwards.

In terms of silhouettes, we see a lot of our favorite Gianvito standbys including lace-up peep-toe pumps, thick buckled ankle straps and over-the-knee heeled boots in smooth as butter leather. However, it’s not all classic, wear-everywhere designs, because he’s included a few gotta-look-thrice options, namely the lace and suede thigh-high Rose boot that will make you instantaneously channel your inner Rihanna the moment you finish lacing them up. Wowza!

With every collection, it becomes clear that Gianvito is a designer on a mission to dress the fiercest women with his age-defying designs. With Jennifer Lopez, Anne Hathaway, Julianne Moore, Emma Watson and Shailene Woodley a part of his esteemed clientele, it’s clear to see that he’s well on his way. We can’t wait to see what he does next!
