Interview: Giuseppe Zanotti Marks 20 Years in Business with Capsule Collection

Interview: Giuseppe Zanotti Marks 20 Years in Business with Capsule Collection

This year, footwear virtuoso Giuseppe Zanotti marks 20 years of his eponymous brand, and he’s doing so in highly glamorous fashion. To commemorate the occasion, the company has released Jewel, the first of four anniversary capsule collections, this one featuring Zanotti’s popular flat sandals reimagined in gold with glittering details. These shoes will arrive in a selection of Zanotti’s flagship stores in June, and we were lucky to have the opportunity to ask Giuseppe himself a few questions about his illustrious history as one of the shoe biz’s biggest names.

1. 20 years in business with your own brand is quite a milestone. What’s been the biggest key to your personal success in the industry?

I have no specific formula for my success, I just want to create shoes that make women sensual and beautiful. I don’t follow any particular fashion trends, I just love women and I love when they wear my shoes with creativity because in the end they are the real fashion designers.

2. How has your approach to design changed since you started designing shoes?

When I start creating a collection there are some constant sources of inspiration. Music has always been part of my design process. Some years ago, I used to be a deejay and I am still deeply connected to music. Whether designing a pair of shoes or making an album it’s the same creative process. Collaborating with musicians was a natural evolution. In the last few years I have been inspired by street style too. I love to travel, listen and see what is going on around the world and absorb people’s culture and energy.

3. Before you founded your company, you worked with some incredible brands, from Valentino to Dior. What motivated you to start your own label?

When I started my career I worked for some incredible fashion houses, they gave me the experience and training to start my own business. It was my dream to be on my own. I wanted to design freely without any restraint, as I have always had a strong point of view and direction.

4. Who is the Giuseppe Zanotti woman? Do you design for an ideal customer in your mind?

The Giuseppe Zanotti woman is in constant evolution, but always sensual, powerful and with a strong personality. Women change so quickly and designers have to constantly follow their needs and desires. I love when I see a young girl and someone her mother’s age wearing the same shoes.

Giuseppe Zanotti Jewel Amira Sandals

5. Shoe trends have changed a lot in the past few years, especially when it comes to single-soles vs. platforms. How much do those changes influence your design choices?

Whether I am making platforms or flats I always focus on proportions, materials and adding a WOW factor. I work closely with my team of highly-skilled artisans to make sure that every detail is perfect.
All of my shoes are Made in Italy to guarantee the highest quality.

Get the Look: Khloe Kardashian Carries Elizabeth & James

It wasn’t that long ago that holding any of the Kardashians up as style inspiration would have seemed a bit silly; for people who consistently wore expensive clothes, bags and shoes, the finished product just never felt all that chic. Times, they are a-changing, though, with Kim on a very controversial Vogue cover and Kendall Jenner walking a slew of prestigious runways from Marc Jacobs to Givenchy. Today, we’re taking a look at a perfectly casual outfit from Khloe Kardashian.

Khloe’s my personal favorite of the Kardashian-Jenner clan; she has the best sense of humor and seems the most like a real human being to me. She also tends to skew a little more casual than her sister, which means that, these days, her style is actually a pretty good guide to looking well-dressed in your off hours. Who would have seen this coming only a few years ago? Below, check out all the pieces you need in order to make Khloe’s spring neutrals a closet reality, including one very pretty Elizabeth & James Cynnie Sling Bag.

The International Edit – February 3

The International Edit – February 3

You guys seemed to dig our debut of The International Edit last week, and since we like to keep our Internet friends happy (IRL friends, too, but mostly Internet friends), we’re here to bring you another dose of the bet new arrivals and fashion finds from the finest International retailers in the land. Or in other lands, actually. Their lands are different than our lands. That’s kind of the whole point. Anyway!

Like we mentioned last week, there are a couple of advantages to shopping international retailers, even for US customers. First, buying patterns vary from market to market, which means that stores outside of the US are going to carry different designers and styles than those serving your home territory. Second, international retailers want to encourage shoppers from across the globe to order from them, so they generally make it as easy as possible, and probably far easier (and in many cases, less expensive) than you’re expecting it to be if you’ve never given it a shot. This week, we’re featuring finds from Harrods, LUISAVIAROMA and Matches Fashion.

The Many Bags of Kate Hudson

The Many Bags of Kate Hudson

If you like celebrities who do their own stylistic thing, no matter what the trends might be, then you probably already like Kate Hudson. Even if you don’t dig her rich-hippie look (and it’s certainly not my thing), it’s always refreshing to see a celeb who has such a clear vision of what she likes to wear and how she wants to look. Stars: sometimes they’re also real people!

The process of identifying some of the bags in Kate’s collection was tricky – she doesn’t stick only to premiere designers and recognizable bags, which is to her credit, but it’s also to our never-ending consternation. We’ve done our best to pick out as many notable finds as we can, and we’ve also included a few for you guys to help us figure out. (You guys are so good at that.) Start Kate’s hippie handbag journey (with a dose of Chanel for good measure) below.

Enjoying Chantecler jewels

With the upcoming holiday season and with some important party approaching I thought It was the right moment to try on some Chantecler jewels, iconic jewellery brand originally from Capri, famous for its unique creations. For this grey and black look I chose the famous bells, wearing two of them on the necklace and two as earrings.
What about them?

Con le feste imminenti e qualche party importante ho deciso che fosse arrivato il momento per provare qualche gioiello di Chantecler, iconica gioielleria originaria di Capri e famosa per le sue creazioni uniche nel loro genere. Per questo look dai toni del grigio e nero ho scelto le famose campanelle, indossandone due sulla collana e due come orecchini.

At Bloomingdale’s, “classic” and “trendy” merge for Fall 2012

As consumers, finding the right wardrobe balance of classic pieces and trendy accents can be tough. So many trends will look obviously outdated after a season or two that even if you love them, it can be hard to justify spending the big bucks on something that will look old almost immediately. That’s why Fall 2012 is so major – so many of the big runway trends are things that a well-stocked wardrobe should have anyway, all the way from knee-high boots to a good black bag.

Classics becoming “trendy” means that it’s a perfect time to stock up – trust me, you’ll never have so many options for knee-high riding boots as you will this fall – you can actually feel good about shopping because so much of what’s in stores will be wearable for a long time. We teamed up with our friends at Bloomingdale’s to scout out some of the best Classic Trends for the season. Check out our picks after the jump!

Match your spirit animal to your favorite designer with the Bloomingdale’s Premiere Designer Lookbook

Match your spirit animal to your favorite designer with the Bloomingdale’s Premiere Designer Lookbook

Since fashion’s Internet explosion, the art of lookbook production has changed quite a bit. What used to be straightforward product catalogs that brand and retail employees used for reference have turned into artistic spectacles, pored over extensively in the style-conscious corners of the Web. It’s rare that you see a model in a full outfit against a white background anymore; instead, the books are styled and shot like a season’s second ad campaign. It’s enough to make our Pinterest-loving hearts swell.

For the Fall 2012 edition of the Bloomingdale’s Premiere Designer Shoe and Handbag Lookbook, the legendary New York store has taken a selection of its favorite brands and matched them up with animals that fit the designers’ look and personality. So which one are you? Pick one of our furry (or feathered!) friends above and find out which designer you match up with after the jump. Want to peruse the lookbook in full? Head on over to Bloomingdales.com.

French Bulldog: Marc Jacobs Collection

Match your spirit animal to your favorite designer with the Bloomingdales Premiere Designer Lookbook Marc Jacobs Collection

Like the cute, cuddly little Frenchie, don’t let the whimsy of Marc Jacobs fool you; underneath is a boatload of style and the attitude to back it up. Shop Marc Jacobs Collection via Bloomingdale’s.

Piglet: Chloé

Match your spirit animal to your favorite designer with the Bloomingdales Premiere Designer Lookbook Chloe

At first, this might seem like an unflattering comparison, but think about it: Pigs are happy, intelligent creatures who relish in whatever they’re doing, and that sounds like a Chloé customer to me. Plus, look how cute this little dude is! Shop Chloé via Bloomingdale’s.

Maltese: Salvatore Ferragamo

Match your spirit animal to your favorite designer with the Bloomingdales Premiere Designer Lookbook Salvatore Ferragamo

The Maltese, like the Salvatore Ferragamo woman, is elegant, extremely well-groomed and immaculately equipped. Don’t mess with her or her blowout. Shop Salvatore Ferragamo via Bloomingdale’s.

Weimaraner: Burberry

Match your spirit animal to your favorite designer with the Bloomingdales Premiere Designer Lookbook Burberry

The Weimaraner is sleek, subdued and stately, everything that a British heritage brand like Burberry seeks in its customers. Can we get a handbag in that exact shade of dappled grey, please? Match your spirit animal to your favorite designer with the Bloomingdales Premiere Designer Lookbook Stuart Weitzman

Besides the clear parallels between Weitzman’s leopard-print pumps and a house cat’s own fur, you have the characteristics that mark both a fine feline and the Weitzman customer: clever, graceful and stylishly aloof. Shop Stuart Weitzman via Bloomingdale’s.

Cockatoo: Giuseppe Zanotti

Match your spirit animal to your favorite designer with the Bloomingdales Premiere Designer Lookbook Giuseppe Zanotti1

Of course, the attention-grabbing cockatoo had to be Giuseppe Zanotti. With daring shoes like heelless platforms and crystal-encrusted pumps, Zanottis are for women who want to make an impression. Shop Giuseppe Zanotti via Bloomingdale’s.

Dior ball

Yesterday in Paris, after the styling with Taylor Tomasi Hill and Kenzo fashionshow I took part to Dior ball, which took place at the wonderful Salomon De Rothschild hotel.

Banane Taipei bag

TheBlondeSalad-31705-copia

I remember when, a year and a half ago, I found a photo of one of these funny bags and, since I immediately fell in love with them, I looked for them everywhere without any results. I finally found them: they're from Banane Taipei and they represent in a funny (and definitely cheap) way the dream bag, the Birkin bag, in a lot of different colours. I chose them in the lake blue, grass green and midnight magenta versions and yesterday, when the fashionshows were over, I wore the first of them with a light shades look, in which my Banane Taipei was the main accessory :)
You can also write to Banane Taipei on Twitter, I'm curious to see which is your favourite colour and what you think about them.

Mi ricordo quando, circa un anno e mezzo fa, in un blog avevo visto una foto di queste simpaticissime borse e, essendomene innamorata dal primo istante, le avevo cercate ovunque senza grossi risultati. Finalmente sono riuscita nella "mia missione": sono di Banane Taipei e rappresentano in maniera simpatica e spiritosa (e decisamente economica) la borsa del desiderio, l'intramontabile Birkin, in tantissimi diversi colori. Io le ho scelte nelle varianti lake blue, grass green e midnight magenta e ieri, finite le sfilate, ho indossato la prima di queste con un look dai toni chiari in cui la mia Banane Taipei spiccava vivacemente :)
Potete scrivere a Banane Taipei anche su Twitter, sono curiosa di sapere qual è il vostro colore preferito e cosa ne pensate.

Good morning from New York beauties! I arrived here yesterday night due to a delay of the flight: all I was able to do was a dinner with friends and this short post, before falling asleep because of jet-lag. I'll be here until the 19th February: from tomorrow I'll have a busy schedule of fashionshows, job meetings, party and bloglovin' awards (talking about them: today and tomorrow are the last two days to vote for us and for Werelse: If you could vote at this link I'd be so grateful) but I will also have the time to spend with my friends in my favourite city in the world. I'll try to update you as more as possible :)
Which one do you prefer among the two pair of shoes I received in New York? Electric blue Giuseppe Zanotti platforms or Alexander Wang sandals?
P.S: I added some new ideas at my Valentine wishlist, you can find them here.

Buongiorno da New York meraviglie! Sono arrivata qui ieri in serata a causa di un ritardo del volo: tutto quello che sono riuscita a fare è stata una cena con amici e questo breve post, prima di piombare nel sonno da jet-lag. Starò qui fino al 19 Febbraio: da domani per me cominciano sfilate, incontri di lavoro, party, bloglovin' awards (a proposito di questo: oggi e domani sono gli ultimi due giorni per votare per noi e Werelse: se riusciste a farlo a questo link naturalmente ve ne sarei eternamente grata) ma non mancherà del tempo da passare con i miei amici in quella che probabilmente è la mia città preferita. Cercherò di aggiornarvi il più possibile :)
Quale preferite tra le due paia di scarpe che ho ricevuto qui a New York? Giuseppe Zanotti blu elettrico o sandali di Alexander Wang?
P.S: Ho aggiunto nuovi idee alla mia wishlist di S.Valentino, potete trovarla qui

LOOK OF THE DAY "FLORENCE 2"





The trip to Florence seems like a million light years ago but I still have more Style Lab pics to show you. This time I chose an outfit that was more me, in fact, I really think this look fits my style head to toe, although I have to say that walking around Florence wearing those amazing yet extremely high Giuseppe Zanotti heels was both eye catching and dangerous. 
For some reason, few people find it shocking to see a tall girl wearing high heels but as my fashion motto is; "If you like it, wear it", it doesn't really matter what anybody else thinks and yes, I am 1.80cm without any shoes on, but I love high heels so If you ever wonder why do I wear such high heels being so tall, my answer would be, why not? ;)



Parece que el viaje a Florencia fue hace 1000 años luz pero yo sigo con mas fotos para enseñarles . Estas fotos son del evento de Firenze4ever y para este look, escogí algo mas "Andy" y siento que este si es mi estilo completamente.
Tengo que confesar que andar caminando por Florencia (o cualquier otra parte) con esos taconazos de Giuseppe Zanotti fue todo un show y es que me divierte el ver la reacción de algunas personas cuando ven a una mujer alta y de paso con tacones de ese calibre.
Yo siempre he dicho: "Si te gusta, ¡Pontelo!", no importa lo que piensen los demás y si, mido 1.80 sin zapatos, pero me fascinan los tacones así que cuando me preguntan; "Andy, ¿Por que usas tacones siendo tan alta?, mi respuesta siempre sera: ¿Por que no? ;)

Shoes, shoes and shoes

TheBlondeSalad-18095-copia

One of the most beloved post on the blog has always been this one about my platforms and wedges collection, from November 2010. During all this time a lot of you asked me to make a new post about my shoe collection and on Monday, ordering the shoe closet of the new house, I decided It was the right time for it. Before Monday I used to keep the designer shoes in their original boxes in the same shoe closet with the low cost shoes, which didn't have their box. On Monday I decided to remove all the boxes, which were hard to get and were getting so much space, leaving all my wedges and platforms "free" in the shoe closet (and I still have some space available) :D
I've been collecting shoes for years (with bags, another great passion of mine) but most of these shoes were presents from brands and estores, received thanks to the visibility of the blog: before opening The Blonde Salad in October 2009 I used to own a third (probably less) than all these beauties. Here for you some photos for shoe lovers like me :)
I'm waiting to see what's your favourite pair!

Uno dei post più apprezzati da sempre sul blog era stato questo riguardante la mia collezione di scarpe con tacco e zeppe, risalente a Novembre 2010. Da parecchi mesi molti di voi mi hanno chiesto di fare un post aggiornato sulla mia collezione di scarpe, e lunedi, mettendo a posto la scarpiera della casa nuova, ho deciso fosse arrivato il momento giusto. Prima di lunedi avevo sempre tenute le scarpe di designer nelle loro scatole originali, disposte nella stessa cabina per le scarpe insieme a quelle low cost che erano disposte nella scarpiera senza scatola. Lunedi ho deciso di eliminare tutte le scatole, che erano difficili da recuperare e da incastrare e che occupavano tantissimo spazio inutilmente, lasciando tutte le mie scarpe con tacco "libere" nella cabina apposita (e ho ancora spazio disponibile) :D
Colleziono scarpe da anni (oltre alle borse, altra mia grandissima passione), ma la maggior parte di queste scarpe sono regali da parte di brand ed ecommerce, ricevute grazie alla visibilità del blog: prima di aprire The Blonde Salad, ad ottobre 2009, possiedevo circa un terzo (se non meno) di tutte queste meraviglie. Ecco un po' di foto per tutte le shoe lovers come me :)
Attendo di sapere curiosa il vostro paio preferito!

In Paris with Louis Vuitton: day 2

TheBlondeSalad-14669-copia

Here I am in Milan again after the 48 hours spent in Paris to discover Louis Vuitton "secret places": these are the photos of Monday night spent with old friends and the ones shot yesterday, day we mostly spent in the spectacular store in Champs Elysées. We arrived to the store before It was open to the public, to enjoy a private guide in which we had the chance to touch our favourite items and access to the "Haute Joaillerie" area, the most exclusive one.
Second stop was the Espace Culturel at the last floor of the Louis Vuitton building: exhibition space open to the public (and totally free) where different artists show their works of art. For these months the exhibition theme was music: we were not allowed to take photos but I can assure you It all was interesting and a lot of fun at the same time, and It definitely is worth a visit If you happen to be in Paris in the next weeks. The best work of art? One of the elevators to access the Espace Culturel is completely dark and sound-proof to relax you in the 15 seconds going up or down.
My look was once again about grey colours: with my glitter ankle boots by Zanotti (one of the best purchases from last year), leather trousers, faux fur black coat, Sal Y Limon bangles, in glitter as well (how cool are they?), I chose a knitted sweater, that I exchanged with a silver top for the night before (leaving with only one carry-on baggage is still hard thing for me :D ).

Eccomi di nuovo a Milano dopo le 48 ore passate a Parigi alla scoperta dei "secret places" di Louis Vuitton: queste le foto di lunedi sera con alcuni vecchi amici, insieme a quelle della giornata di ieri, principalmente passata nello spettacolare store di Champs Elysées. Siamo arrivati prima che lo store aprisse al pubblico, per gustarci una visita privata in cui abbiamo avuto la possibilità di toccare i capi con mano ed accedere all'area "Haute Joaillerie", la più esclusiva della maison.
Seconda tappa è stata l'Espace Culturel all'ultimo piano dell'edificio di Louis Vuitton: spazio d'esposizione aperto al pubblico (e totalmente gratuito) in cui diversi artisti di tutti i generi espongono le loro opere d'arte. Per questi mesi l'argomento dell'esibizione era la musica: non ci è stato permesso scattare foto ma vi posso assicurare che il percorso è stato interessante e molto divertente allo stesso tempo, e merita sicuramente una visita se vi trovate nelle prossime settimane a Parigi. La vera chicca? Uno degli ascensori che accede all'Espace Culturel è a sua volta un'opera: completamente al buio ed insonorizzato vi farà rilassare durante i 15 secondi di salita e discesa.
Il mio look era nuovamente sui toni del grigio: insieme agli stivaletti in glitter di Zanotti (uno degli acquisti migliori dell'anno scorso), pantaloni di pelle, pellicciotto sintetico, bangle, a loro volta in glitter, di Sal Y Limon (non sono splendidi?), ho scelto un maglione a trecce, che ho scambiato per un maglioncino argentato e più leggero per la sera precedente (partire con un solo bagaglio a mano è per me ancora un'impresa ardua :D ).

When you find items like these..

TheBlondeSalad-8883-copia

Since the moment my blog started to become very popular I got a lot of gifts from brands and e-commerce, making me jump for happiness (ah, crazy fashion addicted). As I've always declared, most of the new items you see on the blog are gifts, that are given to me from brands in part to show support toward my blog and in part to reach more visibility online. But also before having the blog I've always been a bag and accessories lover and, not being able to afford all my wishes, I often exchanged some of my items with my friends, looked into vintage stores and also bought online. One of the websites I've always used is Ebay, that I usually prefer in the English version (ebay.uk), French (ebay.fr) and German (ebay.de) where, being very careful about the authenticity of the item (in this old post of mine you can find all my advice about it) I got big deals, finding used bags in good conditions, shoes which were impossible to find in Italy and rings out of production. The Chanel multipocket mini bag you see in this post was my last find: for a reasonable price (never trust the seller when the price is too good to be true) I managed to find one of my favourite models, which is out of production right now :)
Do you buy online? Tell me about your experiences!

Da quando il mio blog ha cominciato ad essere molto seguito sono stati moltissimi i marchi o gli e-commerce che mi hanno mandato bellissimi regali, facendomi fare i salti di gioia (ah, noi fashion addicted). Come ho sempre dichiarato, la maggior parte dei nuovi oggetti che vedete sul blog sono proprio regali, che mi vengono fatti dai brand un po' per dimostrare il loro supporto nei miei confronti ed un po' per avere una maggiore visibilità online. Ma anche da prima di avere il blog sono sempre stata un'amante di borse ed accessori e, non potendomi naturalmente permettere tutti i miei desideri, spesso ho fatto scambi con amiche, cercato in negozi vintage ed anche comprato online. Uno dei siti che ho sempre usato è proprio Ebay, che utilizzo molto di più nelle versioni inglesi (ebay.uk), francese (ebay.fr) e tedesca (ebay.de), dove, stando molto attenta all'originalità del capo (in questo mio vecchio post trovate tutti i miei consigli a riguardo) ho spesso fatto grandi affari, trovando borse usate in ottime condizioni, scarpe introvabili in Italia ed anelli ormai fuori produzione. La multipocket mini bag di Chanel che vedete in questo post è stata la mia più recente scoperta: per un prezzo ragionevole (non fidatevi mai dei prezzi troppo bassi) sono riuscita a trovare uno dei miei modelli preferiti ormai fuori produzione :)
Voi comprate online? Raccontatemi delle vostre esperienze!

One of the websites I've always used is Ebay, that I usually prefer in the English version (ebay.uk), French (ebay.fr) and German (ebay.de) where, being very careful about the authenticity of the item (in this old post of mine you can find all my advice about it) I got big deals, finding used bags in good conditions, shoes which were impossible to find in Italy and rings out of production. The Chanel multipocket mini bag you see in this post was my last find: for a reasonable price (never trust the seller when the price is too good to be true) I managed to find one of my favourite models, which is out of production right now :)
Do you buy online? Tell me about your experiences!

Da quando il mio blog ha cominciato ad essere molto seguito sono stati moltissimi i marchi o gli e-commerce che mi hanno mandato bellissimi regali, facendomi fare i salti di gioia (ah, noi fashion addicted). Come ho sempre dichiarato, la maggior parte dei nuovi oggetti che vedete sul blog sono proprio regali, che mi vengono fatti dai brand un po' per dimostrare il loro supporto nei miei confronti ed un po' per avere una maggiore visibilità online. Ma anche da prima di avere il blog sono sempre stata un'amante di borse ed accessori e, non potendomi naturalmente permettere tutti i miei desideri, spesso ho fatto scambi con amiche, cercato in negozi vintage ed anche comprato online. Uno dei siti che ho sempre usato è proprio Ebay, che utilizzo molto di più nelle versioni inglesi (ebay.uk), francese (ebay.fr) e tedesca (ebay.de), dove, stando molto attenta all'originalità del capo (in questo mio vecchio post trovate tutti i miei consigli a riguardo) ho spesso fatto grandi affari, trovando borse usate in ottime condizioni, scarpe introvabili in Italia ed anelli ormai fuori produzione. La multipocket mini bag di Chanel che vedete in questo post è stata la mia più recente scoperta: per un prezzo ragionevole (non fidatevi mai dei prezzi troppo bassi) sono riuscita a trovare uno dei miei modelli preferiti ormai fuori produzione :)
