Milan accessories showroom— Giuseppe, Bally, Tod’s and more

September 29, 2008

Giuseppe Zanotti Design 

Giuseppe was in town earlier this year for the opening of his first concept store. For me I started paying attention to his work after seeing those ‘walking on air’ shoes, rosette sandals and his ad campaigns. The platforms in the second picture looks like a take on the Vuitton, McCartney same sky high version. Dangerous.

Bally by Brian Atwood

I love the new direction that Bally has been venturing to under Brian Atwood. I am a huge fan of his edgy sexy shoeline, and ever since he joined as the creative director he brought in a whole lot of attention to the historic Italian shoe house. Bally’s new CEO, Marco Franchini, took over in 2003 with the goal to revamp the company, redefine its image and maintain quality control– shoes are made in Switzerland, bags in Florence and a ready to wear line has already been out. Be ready for more surprises from this house, judging by the clothes this season it is not an old soul anymore.

Tod’s by Derek Lam

This is Lam’s third season at Tod’s. I must say that his ready-to-wear line for the house isn’t particularly interesting, but he surely knows the definition of rich & luxurious by adding in a lot of exotic skin into the accessories— check out that python messenger and croc skin loafers.

Jimmy Choo

Going all tribal with beaded embellishments and gladiators… Hmmm, aren’t they some ‘used’ trends?

Sergio Rossi by Edmundo Castillo

I love the ruffles, but the colours are a little turn-off though. It is still as flirty as ever but I much prefer the concept of the glamourous sandals that Edmundo had exclusively created for this year’s Cannes film fest.


And there’s still Manolo Blahnik… stay tuned!
