GEOX Women’s Footwear Collection Autumn-Winter 2020/2021
Dynamic and lively, on-trend but romantic and with a weakness for beautiful details, the GEOX Autumn-Winter 2020/21 collection reconciles the need for personal wellbeing – the focus of the Italian brand’s philosophy and satisfied thanks to the breathable sole and the many other exclusive patents developed over the course of its history – with a commitment to helping to safeguard the environment through the use of innovative and eco-sustainable materials.
This is the case with Nebula, one of the most successful GEOX models, with an upper which this season flaunts a silver or bordeaux tone that combines a jacquard material made from recycled plastic with small details in suede leather. Two and a half bottles is all it takes to make a pair: ultra-light, flexible and – as always – equipped with a breathable sole, they negotiate the urban jungle as they adapt to every requirement of modern living.
Suede leather returns in tandem with python print, in the rounded contours of the ankle boots and the more tapered lines of the pointed court shoes; it is a pairing full of charm, which brings new style even to the timeless design of the urban sneakers, while the soft knee-high boots naturally opt for a full suede look.
Sophisticated complements underline the versatility of this premium material: the original tartan print in autumnal shades which, with the help of large burnished metal buckles, adorns the column-heel and biker boots; or the shine of the polished finish that brightens the toe tips of the monochrome biker model.More suede, this time combined with nappa leather, for footwear featuring Amphibiox technology, which guarantees perfect waterproofing in all environmental conditions: hi-top sneakers lined with faux fur, or new Aerantis laced with nubuck, which let their trekking inspiration shine through and benefit from an advanced air circulation system thanks to a sophisticated combination of technologies.
A golden glow, on the other hand, brings an air of glamour to metallic-finish hi-top leather sneakers, or low sneakers with animal-print panels, elevated by chunky white rubber soles.Animal print adds elegance and an irresistible femininity to the warm or cool – almost platinum – shades of gold elevating the leather and fabric patchwork sneakers, or the slingbacks with a closed toe and kitten heel, decorated with small square studs and also available in a total black suede and patent leather version.The final flashes of metal are found in the eyelets of the smooth leather or crocodile-print combat boots, or in the zips fastening the military-inspired footwear.
Equally austere and male-influenced vibes are evident in the knee-high riding boots, the moccasins and the ankle boots with a side strap, all in smooth calfskin; while the zipped boots feature a subtle but elegant crocodile-print leather accent at the rear. By contrast, a pastel-hued and floral-patterned romanticism crops up in high court or kitten-heeled shoes with an elastic panel, suitable for special occasions.This pattern also softens the proportions of a particularly on-trend model of chunky sneakers, while subtle colours take centre stage in the laced or Velcro-fastening cupsoles, where suede is paired with knit fabric or pearl-effect leather.
