30 Jan THE RITA ORA X GIUSEPPE ZANOTTI COLLABORATION
Launched just a few days ago, the Rita Ora X Giuseppe Zanotti collaboration is the latest show of authentic artistry as seen in recent times. A heavy dose of Rita’s sultry, effortless glam and Zanotti’s wild, gutsy fashion sense have produced an interesting collection of knock-out shoes that portray true taste, Italian craftsmanship, and feminine power.
The Giuseppe for Rita Ora collection includes slides, stiletto sandals, pointed-toe mules and knee-high, peep-toe boots with a chunky Cuban Link chain on the heel. The chain is the showpiece of the collection and was a special request of Ora’s who said it embodies both the Zanotti brand and her personality. Crafted in luxurious materials like polished leather, textured suede, and rich silk-satin, the defining element of the collection is the Cuban Link chain. Fusing hip hop culture and Giuseppe’s longstanding affinity for jewel-like details, the link motif cast in a glossy yellow gold is used both as a design embellishment as well as transformed into a striking, glamorous foot adornment. Zanotti said for him, the chain represents “the punk rock generation. There’s a hard rock and grunge feel to it and I think the chain is a very aggressive element — but in a good way. Chains are also a timeless accessory and I think it’s the perfect seasonal accessory for spring and summer, perfect for the clubs.”
Surprisingly comfy, the prices range from $795 for the flats to $2,495 for the boot. Coming in hot on the heels of his 2017 collaboration with Jennifer Lopez, the beautiful collection promises to be a massive rave with fans of both parties and serves as yet another successful joint venture in the welcome trend of power collaborations in the fashion industry.
