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).

Beyoncé attended the 2014 Billboard Women in Music Luncheon wearing a merlot knotted draped dress by Haute Hippie with a thigh-high side slit. She paired it with Gucci horsebit-embellished Claudie ankle-strap sandals in brown leather. These chunky 70s’-inspired platforms don’t do anything for her outfit…and they feel out of place.

Shoes She Should Have Worn: Beyoncé

Gianvito Rossi Gianvito iridescent leather pumps
You can’t go wrong with this beautiful single-sole shoe. This silhouette elongates the leg and also works perfectly paired with her 5:31 Jerome coat.

Oscar Tiye Zoe cage sandals
Since it’s December and the event was held in NY, I’m not crazy about an open-toe shoe however this unique tassel-embellished sandal in the warm rose gold is a playful option. P.S. – I have these shoes baby blue, j’adore!!!

Daniele Michetti Sveva slingback pumps
This spicy yellow snakeskin is a perfect complement for her burgundy dress. They also feature a low-cut heel counter and black woven leather trim.

Bionda Castana Dekota pump
I love these femme fatale inspired shoes with sexy corset-style laces, geometric leather paneling and sheer mesh sides. Check out how they look on the foot.

Gianvito Rossi Carey strappy pumps
I can’t get enough of these beautiful Fall ’14 shoes in natural python with three thin buckled front straps.

Nicholas Kirkwood colorful pointed-toe pumps
Beyoncé’s previously worn many shoes by Kirkwood and these pointed-toe heels are my wildcard choice featuring multi-color Mexican-inspired needlepoint embroidery. I like this shade of pink & aqua paired with her dress.
