Giuseppe Zanotti Gold Double Bracelet White Crocodile Hi-Top Sneakers

25th April 2013
Multi-talented designer Giuseppe Zanotti has created a unique visionary sneaker that has pushed the limits of contemporary shoe design. The current Giuseppe Zanotti Spring Summer 2013 Men’s Collection offers a variety of distinctive Giuseppe Zanotti signature creations – highlighting single and double metal bracelet accents. There is one particular men’s sneaker from this season that has caught my attention.
This Giuseppe Zanotti Double Gold-Coloured Metal-Bracelet High-Top Sneaker is a real eye-catcher in it’s class. After owning my first pair of Giuseppe Zanotti’s, the brand has constitute my confidence to acquire a second pair. The gold metal bracelet on white croc is one alluring high-top – it’s genetic architecture has a seamless transition, bond together with chrome hardware and zippers that meant to looked like an extremely futuristic footwear proposition. Despite true beauty that lies in the beholder’s eyes, the definitive composition for this pair of white and gold croc sneakers fall short as the vamp is made out of a distinctive leather embossed crocodile pattern, which was created to regard as perhaps a genuine interpretation.
Rumour has it that Kanye West and Giuseppe Zanotti may have collaborated on this pair of sneakers, but there isn’t sufficient evidence available to confirm this alleged collaboration that was started by Ibn Jasper – Kanye West’s long-term personal barber and style-consultant.

Givenchy Green Spitfire Fighter Jet Print Columbian-Fit T-Shirt Pre-Spring 2013

12th April 2013
It has been some time since I last purchased a Givenchy Columbian Fit T-Shirt. My previous oversized acquisition was the wanted Givenchy Shark & Mermaid Print T-Shirt. That particular tee has gone through almost over 8 months of ownership and I appreciate every moment wearing it.

Givenchy’s Columbian Fit T-Shirt is like marmite, you either love it or hate it. My first impression dressing an oversize tee was very negative. To tell you the truth, it took me 4 months till the day I had accepted to take out my first purchased Givenchy Birds of Paradise Columbian Fit T-Shirt. Reason being that I looked ridiculious, wearing a t-shirt that is 3 times bigger than my fit makes me think how unfavourably tailor-made it was and also because my first Givenchy purchased was a regular fit Rottweiler T-Shirt, it made a lot of difference. But after a while, the comprehension of oversize designs grew in me. I have learned that there is not just acceptance of the imperfect nature, or possibly the perfect nature, depending on how one looks at it.

This week I celebrate my 4th Givenchy Columbian Fit T-Shirt acquisition, it took me quite a while to decide where my money should go, or should it have been saved at the bank? LOL. I had a dilemma between comparing the Givenchy Fighter Jet Print T-Shirt against current season’s Givenchy Madonna collection. It wasn’t an easy choice, but I followed my instinct and after observing how the Givenchy Madonna collection perform in the market earlier last month, I have decided to select the Fighter Jet pre-collection due to its rarity and popularity that outweighs Madonna.
No one can realistically argue which designs are far better because I always believe that everyone shares different taste, the public opinion on the Madonna collection on the other  hand is not as well received as I thought so due to its eccentric theme. I loved the Fighter Jet T-Shirt since the day Givenchy Pre-Spring 2013 lookbook was released during end of May 2012. If you want a Givenchy print oversized t-shirt that is not easily counterfeit, then this is the one. By looking at the amount of digital design Tisci has dedicated, the printing process of such a grand-complication t-shirt is pretty tricky to manufacture.

Giuseppe Zanotti Gold Plated and Studded Sandals

3rd January 2013
The temperature was at 39°C high today during mid-afternoon, and it is going to hit 41°C tomorrow – with bush fire warnings everywhere around Victoria, stay safe my friends. These are not exciting times, the weather has mysteriously changed, it was below 20°C just a day before. I am not going to enjoying the up coming weekend with some serious heat waves reported to hit Melbourne, and they said it was just the beginning.

Despite the horrendous weather, I saw these exquisite Giuseppe Zanotti Suede Gold Plated Sandals and Giuseppe Zanotti Leather Gold Studded Sandals that were just added today at SSENSE. I am in need of a new pair of sandals to go through the casual everyday summer heat, my excuse to not say no to these. The gold plated sandals are really tempting and I have not seen anything like it since my long-gone desired for the Givenchy Spring Summer 2010 Gladitor Studded Sandals. The studded ones look just as good, if not far more attractive than the gold plated sandals, what do you think? Which would you choose if you had the choice to pick one? Just a few weeks ago I was fortunate enough to have bought a pair of very rare Burberry Prorsum Gladitor Sandals from the Spring Summer 2011 collection because of the soaring temperature that are going no where but north. I am glad I did not held back, now I am hungry for another fresh pair.

SSENSE – Giuseppe Zanotti Black Suede and Gold Plated Zak 10 Sandals. Suede sandals in black. Adjustable pin-buckle closure at heel. Gold-tone metal plaques at straps. Plaque at vamp strap embossed with logo. Black leather sole. Tonal stitching. Leather, metal. Made in Italy. BUY IT NOW

SSENSE – Giuseppe Zanotti Black Leather and Gold Studded Zak 10 Sandals. Leather sandals in black. Adjustable pin-buckle closure at heel. Gold-tone conical metal studs at straps. Black leather sole. Tonal stitching. Leather, metal. Made in Italy. BUY IT NOW 
Meanwhile I am fantasicing myself imagining how would I look with these stunning bling-bling Giuseppe Zanotti Gold Swarovski Crystal Kevin Slip-On Loafers. I have seen this both gold and black versions in the women’s at Miss Louise Collins Street. They look absolutely amazing, these photos below doesn’t do justice, trust me, they look far more shinier. I would have loved to try them if only they stocked men’s Giuseppe Zanottis, now nowhere to be found in Melbourne.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

24th December 2012

Seasons greetings my dear friends, the year 2012 is coming to an end. Can you believe this? The world did not end. We are now entering 2013 and not to forget the succulent sales season of Fall Winter 2012 has commenced on many websites, so as the extended sales on already discounted prices.
This year-end has been well for me; I have graduated and had received my official Bachelor degree scroll. Therefore I have decided to treat myself a nice gift, including one more for this Christmas.
I always wanted a pair of white sneakers to fill the gap of my current shoe collection. But so far I haven’t had any in mind except for the Giuseppe Zanotti Double Bracelet Leather and Suede Zipped High-Top Sneakers that I saw 2nd-Blog-Café had, I’m jealous. Not really complete in white, but I love the purple and red colour way, it is too perfect. However this was sold out much earlier during the early pre-order phase of Fall Winter 2012 collection on LUISA VIA ROMA. Therefore has resulted me to search on various retailers. Fortunately at Flannels Fashion in the UK has them in stock, and I had eventually bought one in a size 43.

The sneakers came in the mail today, I was excited. Nothing can match the feeling of opening up a parcel to find a fresh pair of shoes in it. I loved it instantly, but what surprises me is the size of those metal bracelets, or you may call them Velcro-bars. They look much bigger than in the photos, I tried them on and they fit really well. There are two side zips at the front and this gives relatively easy quick foot access, in or out. The back zip has no function; it is just a mere display of aesthetic to match the front design. I like it. I thought this would be another tough sneaker to get into, but I was wrong. This was my Christmas gift; I opened it too early, so I spoiled my own surprise. Oh well…
The second item that I bought was a blazer that I was looking for since Fall Winter 2011. This blazer is very special; you can’t find anything like it anymore since it was last produced. I have actually mentioned about this in a few posts that I was looking high and low for it ever since the day I tried it in Harrolds Melbourne. Well, after waiting for more than a year, I found it on eBay. Without any hesitation, I bought it, I know it was a good deal and I will never find it anywhere else in mint condition and a price tag less than 25% of its original retail price. It is the Balmain Fall Winter 2011 Military Blazer with Embroidered Cuffs. I will be receiving it by early January 2013. I can’t wait.
