Pioneering high-end nomadic leather sandals for a collection that exudes mythological grandeur, Giuseppe Zanotti is the creative genius behind his eponymous line of bold, quirky and downright zany sandals that come embellished with seashells, bejewelled scorpions and even skeletal fish bones. While the winter weather is still here, team Zanotti’s biker boots with a pair of hot leggings and a chic biker jacket for a daring leather-luxe look complete with puff-quilted backs, pointed toes and zip detailing. And when spring begins to blossom around us, Zanotti’s radiant silver platform wedges make for a high-shine alternative, while his knee-length gladiators or nomadic wraparound leather sandals provide a comfortable approach to the warmer weather.
