Beyonce teams up with Giuseppe Zanotti for a shoe design




“I’m doing a shoe with Beyoncé right now.” declared Giuseppe Zanotti in an interview with Forbes. After rapper-creative-director-ego-tripper Kanye West, it’s now the singing and dancing pop superstar’s turn to design a pair of shoes for the luxury brand.

In 2013, American rapper, Kanye West opened the way for collaborations with the Italian shoe designer with a pair of golden high-heeled sandals named Cruel Summer, like his album. A year later, the prolific artist did it again with biker-style peep-toe booties called Mrs West, as a tribute to his bride-to-be at the time, Kim Kardashian.

Now the attention will be moving on to Beyonce – as though she even needs it.

“Beyonce has very clear ideas – she knows exactly what she wants. 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 Beyonce,” he added. “I’m working on finalising the shoe with her stylist, Ty Hunter, right now. And Beyonce will then say what she likes and what she doesn’t like,” the designer explained. Fans might be disappointed though as it will only be one pair of shoes. Queen B imagined a pair of stilettos which will be unveiled in 1 to 2 weeks.

So we will have to summon our patience!
