Milan, February 2014 – A new collection for women attuned to ‘modern living’ that answers the need for shoes capable of blending comfort and quality with contemporary aesthetics. For the forthcoming Geox autumn/winter season, design, functionality and well-being will mark the pace of everyday life, through a dynamic-style approach ranging from formal tastes to the casual spirit, up to the leisure-time city style and beyond.
In this creative and productive vision, the thermo-regulating properties of each model and the use of cutting-edge technology emerge as the most authentic symbols of the Geox style: consequently, exclusive finishes and treatments enhance the materials by adding brilliance and sheen to the surfaces, which are modelled into versatile and light forms to embody the dynamic spirit and 24/7 usage requirements of contemporary women.
The same care and attention characterise the choice of colours, which range from the intense and sophisticated anthracite grey and maroon shades to natural nuances comprising air force blue, cognac and ebony, alongside livelier and vibrant shades such as red and orange.
Blending the classic office look with an eye to current fashion and trends, the typical hides of the Italian shoemaking tradition include soft suede and waterproof calfskin, often combined in sophisticated material mixes that yield refined tone-on-tone combinations or colour contrasts displaying a marked graphic impact.
The silhouettes shift between ankle boots with side buckles or with metal chain profiles and the grittier reinterpretations of biker boots and leather ankle boots, with flexible plateau and eco-fur interior that folds back like a soft garment. The ankle boots with crepe soles have an active soul and their fur-lined inside bestows a feeling of warmth and protection.
The brand’s heritage and distinctive identity emphasise the class of the boots inspired by women’s riding shoe models, redesigned with tall wedges, golden applications and light-shade effects that further enhance their volumes and proportions. This fundamental concept of innovative and modern forms is further reflected in the remake of the iconic moccasin, with tapered and slightly squared tip, made with the most elaborate materials such as buffed material and crocodile print.
An urban yet ultra-chic mood emerges from the pearly-painted court shoes with medium heel, which can be alternated with the high-heeled pump shoes manufactured with the special memory foam technology, the zebra animal print shoe being the most distinctive version.
Lastly, the desire to relax and escape to the outdoors characterises the ultra-sporty runner-sneakers with their vintage air and multicoloured design, or the suede Beatle boots with midsole and elastic sides—finely-worked details that reconfirm Geox’s utmost sensitivity to flexibility, comfort and performance, not only in the city but also during leisure activities.
