A trademark license partnership, it marks a clever link-up between Gauthier, one of the most exciting independent couturiers in Paris, known for his rock-n-roll glamour and French panache, with Zanotti, a legendary figure in Italian footwear recognized for his bravura sense of modern elegance, from his bejeweled heels to fashion-forward Rockstar sneakers.

“For this collaboration I wanted to create a very distinctive selection of footwear that felt like a natural extension of my collection and also which complements the confident personalities of the Alexandre Vauthier woman. The women who wear my collections around the world are both sensual and powerful and this collaboration with Giuseppe Zanotti was made for these bold and inspiring women. Giuseppe understood this perfectly and together we took distinctive details of my couture collection and interpreted them into this footwear collection,” said Vauthier in a release.
Comprising some 90 signature styles, including evening sandals, platforms, daytime flats, booties, and biker boots, the collection will be produced in Giuseppe Zanotti Italian production facilities and sold through the brand’s Milan and New York showrooms.
