One is never too young to enjoy the finer things in life, at least according to Italian footwear and accessories designer Giuseppe Zanotti, who announced the launch of a new children’s line of his popular luxury shoes.
Giuseppe Junior, a new, dedicated brand name for the line of baby and children sneakers, features the same quality and attention to details of the company’s adult styles, but on a much smaller scale. Nappa leather, velvet, laminates, crocodile prints and metallic accents are peppered throughout the collection featuring seven signature bar buckle sneaker styles.
“I’m very enthusiastic about this new venture,” said Giuseppe Zanotti in a statement. “Challenges are vital for me and stimulate my creativity. In the past, I have designed children’s shoes for my clients and celebrities such as Beyoncé, Kanye West, Kim Kardashian and Karolina Kurkova. Their children were some of my first little fans. Delighted with the growing popularity of these styles, I thought it was the right time to create a range for little fashionistas and I loved translating my designs into a first junior collection.”
Comprised of styles for both boys and girls, the collection will be available in a range of sizes from newborn to 33. Pre-orders for Giuseppe Junior will be available online starting May 2, and will be sold at the brand’s stores globally starting at the end of May.
