Interesting at GDS: new labels with new trends
Feb '09
In the new shoe collection from the Annette Görtz designer label, exciting surfaces meet unusual details. Rugged cowhide boots with high shafts and funnel heels have braided inserts in the calf area. The leather decorated with small nails in the heel area is especially clever. Ankle styles also appear with wooden funnel heels — either with distinctive lacing or as clean booties.

Long-shaft boots in fine suede/leather combinations with wedge heels and fabric lacing are among the leading characters in the collection and dovetail perfectly with Annette Görtz eveningwear. Exciting material combinations can be seen in flat smooth-leather boots that offer an especially good fit through the integration of stretch fabric.

Rugged high boots and half boots with eye-catching metal grommets are perfect for outdoor wear. Profile soles with indentations in linoleum cut patterns intended to prevent the accumulation of mud and sludge are comfortable and functional. True to the colour-reduced collection, colours are limited to black and nostalgic mud.

The story of children's shoe label Babybotte began with the French man Georges Bidegain. In 1936, he founded a company to design children's shoes in Pau, a town in Southwest France. Already in 1949 the Bidegain company and the Babybotte label were famous. The products became THE synonym for children's shoes in France. Soon the Bidegain SA company developed a reputation beyond French borders and was able to establish itself on the global market. In 1959 an orthopaedic yet stylish shoe was developed and the sister label Le Loup Blanc (the white wolf) was born.

The years between 1975 and 1989 were especially important for further technical developments. The mission was and is to offer children's shoes with an ideal fit. Today the tradition-rich Bidegain company, with its Babybotte label, looks back on more than 70 years of experience in children's shoes. It is a company that takes the health of children's feet very seriously: according to the company philosophy, good shoes are essential for children, since they play a very important role in the growth of the feet.

The men's luxury label, Baldessarini, stands for the best materials processed with expert craftsmanship. For the 2009 Autumn/Winter season, Baldessarini presents their own shoe collection for the first time, thus completing their fashion offerings. The styles are characterised by an exclusive leather selection in natural colours such as taupe, black olive, smoky blue, grey mocha and deep black. They are handmade using the time-consuming Goodyear method. Vegetable tanning processes ensure a unique and natural leather characteristic.

This lends the shoes more intense colour that marbles with time. Washed goat hide, exclusive calfskin or velour from Tuscany, lambskin double-face from New Zealand and horse leather from Chicago are the materials used in this collection. Classic styles are interpreted in a fresh, modern manner. Next to the typical Baldessarini suede Chelsea boots, monks, derbies, oxfords and jodhpurs are offered. Manufacture and distribution of the Baldessarini shoe collection is handled by the Zimmermann Shoe Group in Germany.
