Jennifer Lopez creates shoe line with Giuseppe Zanotti

Jennifer Lopez feels more sexy and confident in Giuseppe Zanotti heels.

Jennifer Lopez has collaborated with Giuseppe Zanotti on a shoe line.

The 47-year-old popstar is no stranger to wearing high-end garments and counts footwear extraordinaire Giuseppe as one of her favourite shoe designers. He is also a big fan of the singer, making it the perfect idea for the pair to team up on a capsule collection called Giuseppe for Jennifer Lopez.

Offerings include pale blue suede platforms, a nude pointed pump with cut-outs and laces around the ankle and a baby pink high-top sneaker with a wedged heel.

“Giuseppe is a designer I’m very loyal to because of his beautiful silhouettes and craftsmanship," Jennifer gushed to WWD. "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.”

Jennifer already has a retail empire alongside her music and acting career, boasting multiple fragrances with Coty, a fashion range for Kohl's and a jewellery collection with brand Endless. But this marks her first high-end project and the Love Don't Cost a Thing singer jumped at the chance to put her passion for shoes into her creations.

Giuseppe meanwhile has created footwear for big names like Selena Gomez and Kim Kardashian in the past, but his work with Jennifer is the biggest and most involved line he's got into so far.

“She gives me suggestions and I give her advice and both of us, we are open to learn," he smiled. "Every time I work with a star I learn a lot. Also, I teach a lot because I’m a shoemaker, a designer. I’m born with a pencil in my hand. For old teenagers like me it’s good to learn.”

The shoes will be unveiled at the Footwear Fashion Association of New York from 2 to 4 August (16), and will be available to purchase next January (17) in the designer's stores and select retailers worldwide. There will also be two bags on offer, with prices ranging from $795 (£606) to $1,995 (£1,520).
