Coming off his fall duet with Jennifer Lopez, designer Giuseppe Zanotti is collaborating with former One Direction singer and soloist Zayn Malik for a collection of modern and classic men’s footwear.
“I really believe style comes from taking chances, being bold and not being afraid to express yourself,” said Malik. “I feel Giuseppe does that with his collections—and I try to do that with my music.”
The collection, available later this month, reflects Malik’s luxury rocker style and taste for athleisure-inspired silhouettes. Styles include an olive sneaker, a military sneaker boot, leather ankle boots with a front zip closure and a moto leather and suede ankle boot with heavy zipper details. Each boot boats a “Giuseppe for Zayn’ embossed logo.
“Zayn is a fashion icon, truly,” said Zanotti. “It’s who he is, it’s not fake. Just as his music is soulful, his style is natural. His whole approach is contemporary, an easy coolness with the right amount of modern rebel.”
The collection will retail for $795-$1,295 online and in select Giuseppe Zanotti Design stores and luxury retailers.
