There’s been an explosion of emerging talent with many young designers being recognised globally, and Giannico is one of them.
The 22-year-old footwear creative Nicolo Beretta has been picked up by Level Shoes for the SS18 selection that includes mules in bold colours and embellished detailing. His artistic touch with feminine sensibility has won him a loyal fan base, including Donatella Versace, which is not bad for someone who launched his first collection when he was just 18-years-old at Milan and Paris fashion weeks.
Beretta was born in Milan in 1996 and from an early age he was drawn to designing clothes and accessories and experimented with fabrics, objects and various materials, creating a dream world where he was able to dress modern princesses. His education, partly in Australia, allowed him to deepen his natural attitude and intensify his passion for many aspects of contemporary art, which inspired his original designs. But it was only after he met the legendary shoe designer Manolo Blahnik he decided to launch his label.
The quirky and colorful brand Giannico is bound to strike a chord with shoe lovers in the region and we look forward to seeing more from this self-taught designer. Shop his collection now at Level Shoes in the Dubai Mall and leveleshoes.com.
