The designers behind our dreamiest shoes (Giuseppe Zanotti and Gianvito Rossi included) tell us about their own holiday desires

Bionda Castana

The design duo of Bionda Castana (pictured above), Natalia Barbieri and Jennifer Portman, have sartorial wishes for the season. Barbieri says she'd like "a Technics1210MK2 turntable," and Portman shared that she wants the "Woolrich Literary Walk Eskimo parka."


Giuseppe Zanotti

"My holiday wish goes to those who follow their dreams with energy and passion every day — I wish their dreams always come true. My hope for the holidays is to take time to recharge and let my thoughts flow freely ... maybe in Seychelles, a wild and stunning place far from the daily routine."


Teresa Ebagua, founder and designer of Chelsea Paris

"This holiday I find myself seeking serenity more than anything else. In an industry that constantly moves and evolves, still moments are a luxury. So at the top of my wish list this season is a combination of peace, relaxation and ultimately a space to meditate on my next collection."


Gianvito Rossi

"A painting by Umberto Boccioni, the Italian futurist — a longtime wish!"
