Designer Giuseppe Zanotti today (December 1, 2017) debuted the Alena Star shoe, a black, slip-on sneaker with detachable crystal-encrusted stars.
On the explosion in demand for sneakers, Zanotti told the South China Morning Post,”The sneaker is the absolute representation of our time right now. It gives a new message. Like jeans, they’re not just for men or for women; they’re for both. The new sex.
“There are no more lines now: no man, no woman, no young, no old. The sneaker multitasks. We’re discovering a new world with the sneaker. Every season we have new ideas, new bottoms, new silhouettes, new proportions.”
The Alena Star sneaker is available exclusively at the brand’s boutiques and at giuseppezanotti.com.
