Jennifer Lopez will collaborate with Giuseppe Zanotti on new fashion range
Jennifer Lopez is set to collaborate with Giuseppe Zanotti on a new fashion range.
The 47-year-old singer songwriter has partnered with the Italian fashion designer to create a footwear and accessories line called Giuseppe for Jennifer Lopez, which the 59-year-old believes was a "natural evolution" for the pair because he has always been "inspired" by the 'Ain't Your Mama' hitmaker.
Speaking to Vogue online about the forthcoming fashion venture, Giuseppe said: "I've always been inspired by Jennifer and love the way she looks in my shoes.
"It was a natural evolution to collaborate together."
And the 'Wedding Planner' actress - who founded her eponymous clothing label JLO by Jennifer Lopez in 2001 - has admitted she has held a longstanding passion for extravagant footwear and has hinted she is also excited to work with Giuseppe.
She explained: "I think it goes without saying that like every other girl, I love a killer pair of shoes. Whether I'm walking the red carpet or dressed casually, the right shoes complete my outfit to make me feel beautiful, sexy, and fearless."
Giuseppe announced the news on his Instagram account, which saw him post a picture of him in discussion with the mother of two - who has Maximilian and Emme, both eight years old, with her ex husband Marc Anthony.
Alongside the post, he wrote: "A Special Release: Giuseppe Zanotti and Jennifer Lopez are joining creative forces in an exclusive, new capsule collection. #GiuseppexJennifer launches worldwide in January 2017 @JLO #GiuseppeZanotti (sic)"
And Giuseppe has teased the forthcoming capsule, which will include crystal encrusted boots, embellished wedge trainers and platform shoes, as well as two leather handbags, will be the perfect amalgamation of the duos style.
The creative mastermind - who is known for his embellished stiletto heels and 18 carat gold menswear trainers - explained: "[It will be] like Jennifer, sensual, sophisticated, modern but also playful and edgy.
"Everything you would expect from the both of us - bad-a*s high heels with shapes that are fierce and, of course, have some sparkle!"
Jennifer and Guiseppe's collection is set to hit stores in January next year.
