Would You Wear Your Watch On Your Feet?

Two designers with maximalist styles meet. Watch what happens

Never be out of time: That’s the message behind this shoe that features gold-plated watch straps on an iconic Giuseppe Zanotti heel-less silhouette. It’s part of a collaboration with young, bold Brit designer Christian Cowen whose fan base includes Lady Gaga, Beyonce and Cardi B. 

This style (seen above) is part of a see-now-buy-now capsule, which is available online now, in gold and black colourways. 

The rest of the collection (unveiled at Cowen's spring/summer 2019 runway show) will drop in boutiques come February 2019. There will also be a selection of pieces available for special orders as well, and these include Cowen’s signature tropes such as feathers and sequins fused with iconic Giuseppe styles; truly the perfect pairing of bold American style with Italian craftsmanship.

“Working with Giuseppe Zanotti has been a dream. Not only does he have the true creative flair of an artist, but he is also incredibly kind and so supportive of our combined vision."

"As a young designer, the opportunity to be able to partner with Giuseppe has been invaluable, his advice and vision have been so helpful and I couldn’t be happier with what we have created together,” says Cowen. “Our maximalist styles married together have created a line of shoes that will be sure to keep you watching.”  

Maximalist? Sounds like they had the Tatler Ball in mind.
