If shoulder pads weren’t your thing, perhaps Giuseppe Zanotti x Faith Connexion’s newest concoction will lure you into the’80s hype that loomed over fashion month.
Combining the elegance of pristine black stilettos with ’80s accents—namely legwarmers—the collaboration bloomed out of inspiration from the Madonna era, combining what the brands call “the fluidity of an elegant dancer and rock-n-roll.” The back of each limited edition heel features a crystal embellished in-cut that adds a tinge of opulence to the sleek, satin strapped heels. Joining them, the glitter dusted legwarmers are designed to stretch over the top of the shoes and foot and up to the knee, in true “Flashdance” fashion.
The legwarmers were influenced by Faith Connexion’s penchant for streetwear flare, while the heels followed Zanotti’s tradition of sleek footwear. Overall, the retro, embellished design certainly echos the exuberant collections of the Fall/Winter 2018 ready-to-wear collections, many of which paraded large shoulder pads, jewel encrusted bags, and slouchy boots down the runways of New York, London, Milan and Paris.
Giuseppe Zanotti x Faith Connexion is available online now.
