Since the launch of its first collection of footwear jewel in New York, in 1994, Giuseppe Zanotti has bewitched the world of fashion with its visionary design, elaborate and always innovative. Its mix of innocence and rock ‘n’ roll, elegance and sensuality, craftsmanship and futuristic aesthetic, make each shoe Giuseppe Zanotti one piece, whose incomparable quality is guaranteed by traditional techniques with which it is implemented. Despite the many successes over the past two decades, which have seen the company expand globally and add handbags, jewelry, men’s footwear and ready-to-wear to their collections, the spirit of its founder has remained unchanged. His tireless creativity is born of love for art, music, design, and his mission: to bring to the feet of women the most beautiful shoes in the world.
The singer has just announced that she is to create a capsule collection of footwear and accessories for luxury Italian shoe label Giuseppe Zanotti, launching in January.
“I think it goes without saying that like every other girl, I love a killer pair of shoes,” says Lopez, 47. “Whether I’m walking the red carpet or dressed casually, the right shoes complete my outfit to make me feel beautiful, sexy, and fearless. The collection Giuseppe and I have created is everything you would expect from the both of us—bad ass high heels with shapes that are fierce and of course, have some sparkle!”
Giuseppe for Jennifer Lopez will feature styles including crystal-encrusted open-toe booties, embellished wedge sneakers, and gladiators in snakeskin-print leather in a palette of pastels, cool greys, and warm beiges. Two bag styles complete the collection.
“I’ve always been inspired by Jennifer and love the way she looks in my shoes—it was a natural evolution to collaborate together,” says Giuseppe Zanotti. “The collection, like Jennifer, is sensual, sophisticated, modern but also playful and edgy.”
Giuseppe for Jennifer Lopez will be available in Giuseppe Zanotti Design stores, online at giuseppezanottidesign.com, as well as in selected retailers around the world.
