Beyonce + Giuseppe Zanotti Collaborate on New Shoe
In an interview with Forbes, Zanotti revealed “I’m doing a shoe with Beyoncé right now.”
The reporter was shown a sketch of the footwear, and although he didn't see the finished product, he hinted "Beyonce has a thing for ultra thick platform stilettos." Okay, we officially want these on our feet now.
“Beyoncé has very clear ideas — she knows exactly what she wants," Zanotti said. "The thing which she then also has over other celebrities, is that she has an amazing voice. She’s incredibly talented and she’s an amazing dancer — she’s complete. Few are like Beyoncé."
We definitely agree that Queen Bey is one of a kind, and we anticipate her collaboration with Zanotti will be nothing short of amazing. Unfortunately, the designer revealed that he's only working on one shoe with the singer.
“I’m working on finalizing the shoe with her stylist right now," he explained. "And Beyoncé will then say what she likes and what she doesn’t like. It will be one shoe only."
According to the March 19 interview, the shoe is "scheduled for release within one or two weeks."
Beyoncé is no stranger to the fashion world. After all, her mother Tina Knowles famously designed many of Destiny's Child's red carpet and stage outfits. Additionally, in 2006, Beyoncé and Tina launched their House of Dereon fashion line. In 2014, Women's Wear Daily announced that Beyoncé partnered with Topshop on an athletic streetwear brand. That's expected to hit stores as early as fall 2015.
