At Giuseppe Zanotti, the designer said that after peak sneaker, it was time to push things forward. “We need to open another door to connect classic formal [style] with the sneaker world, and push them closer together to create a new standard of shoe,” he said. Among his best looks for spring ’20: a Chelsea boot in tie-dye canvas and a loafer decked out with tie-dye crystal.
Jimmy Choo Gets it On
Sandra Choi’s spring ’20 muse is Marvin Gaye. “He was the godfather of groove,” she said, showing the mood board shots on her phone. The musician’s famous red beanie hat inspired a dip-dye version of Choo’s Diamond sneakers. The season’s hero shoe, the penny loafer, took its style cues from the animal prints Gaye favored in the ’80s.
Church’s Goes Back to Its Roots
Following the success of the CH sneaker that launched last season, the Prada-owned heritage house has gone back to its roots. The brand, which was a supplier to the British army, offered up a canvas desert boot called Docklow, reproduced from the archives. It’s light and water-resistant just like the original.
