Giuseppe Zanotti Collaborates with Jennifer Lopez
The Italian shoe maestro will work with the prolific singer for a collection that is as bold and glamorous as her on-stage persona.
You can now quite literally walk in the shoes of Jennifer Lopez – Giuseppe Zanotti has announced a collaboration with the pop star and actress for a capsule collection called Giuseppe for Jennifer Lopez (or #GiuseppexJennifer for all you social media mavens).
Slated to go on sale worldwide in January 2017, WWD reports that the line will first be shown at the Footwear Fashion Association of New York from August 2 to 4. While we expect the designs to be top secret till its launch, Zanotti has let us in on a bit of the collection – expect crystal-encrusted booties, strappy gladiators in snakeskin-printed leather and embellished wedge sneakers. Two styles of handbags are also in the works, and the collection is expected to retail from a reasonable $795 to $1,195.
This isn’t Lopez’s first foray into the fashion industry. The American personality has a portfolio that includes a now-defunct eponymous clothing and lifestyle label J.LO in 2001 and an everyday fashion collection for budget retailer Kohl’s. She has also collaborated with perfume conglomerate Coty on 17 different fragrances. While Zanotti has previously crafted shoes for stars the likes of Kim Kardashian and Janet Jackson, the Italian shoe designer is highly selective of his collaborators; he’s worked with Beyonce and model Anja Rubik, but Lopez will be his first major celebrity collaborator to date.

“It’s impossible not to feel like a more confident, sexier version of yourself when you’re wearing a pair of Zanottis. The shoes are so in line with my personal style, it felt easy and natural.” Lopez mused.
