LA REGINA D’AFRICA- GIUSEPPE ZANOTTI SS13

ImageLa bellezza femminile e l’origine della vita. La collezione donna SS13 racconta l’Africa.

La sua energia, i simboli, i colori. Le ispirazioni sono tante. Sicuramente c’è la musica nera, quella dei primi gruppi funky che esaltano  le atmosfere afro. Poi i monili, gli anelli  in particolare, che si trasformano in preziose cavigliere.

 Ma anche elementi primordiali come “le fiamme”, out of proportions sui sandali Firewings.

Disegni lineari distinguono lo stivale che avvolge la gamba con sottili decori in metallo. Tribali, ecco le megafrange, una danza fluida e leggera che evoca le immagini di Veruschka by Franco Rubartelli. Lo stile è forte, attenuato da materiali come il suede. I pellami sono ruvidi, opachi, come le stampe di elefante e di struzzo…

Solo una citazione per il leopardo, affinata dal metallo dorato e baciata da un segno di gloss rosso Ral 3000. Le tinte dettano l’armonia. Calde e naturali.

La luce di un tramonto nel Serengeti o il ruggine della terra bruciata dal sole. E sfumature di oro per una Regina d’Africa etno-glam.

 

The SS13 collection is all about Africa: its energy, its symbols, and its colors.

There’s music for one, and the soulful sounds of the early funk groups celebrating African influences and culture. The accessories: rings in particular, are used to fabricate exquisite anklets or even more primordial influences, which are reflected in the disproportionate flames on the fire-wing sandals.

There’s also a new boot, with fine metal detailing winding around the leg. The mega fringes have a tribal feel, like a light, sinuous dance evoking images of Veruschka by Franco Rubartelli.

The powerful style is softened by materials like suede. The leathers are rough and matte, like the elephant and ostrich prints.

Leopard skin makes just one fleeting appearance, complemented by gold metal and lip-smacking red gloss. Warm, natural shades instill a feeling of harmony, from the light of a Serengeti sunset and the rusty hues of sun-scorched earth to hints of gold for an ethno-glam African Queen.
