First Look At ZAYN's Giuseppe Zanotti Collaboration
If your grandparents gifted you cold hard cash this holiday season, you might want to save those bills to cop ZAYN's line of shoes with Giuseppe Zanotti, which were revealed on Tuesday morning.
Speaking with Vogue, the 23-year-old pop star revealed that he and the fashion big-wig met at Paris Fashion Week in 2015, where they hit it off immediately.
"We realized that even though what we each do, music and shoe design, could be seen as worlds apart, we had a lot in common in how we approach and style them," he explained. "I like things which are a bit dark and weird, and Mr. Zanotti isn’t afraid to play with those elements either. The process of designing my collection has been really fun as a result!"
Expect to see even more fashion ventures from the former One Direction bandmate when his collaboration with Versus Versace drops in February. Donatella Versace and ZAYN met some years ago during his time in One Direction, but the fashion titan admitted during a London Fashion Week interview with the New York Times that she "was not exactly a fan of that band."
"But then I met him again when he started to date Gigi [Hadid], who I work with all the time. And he impressed me very much — he was so mature, so thoughtful, treated her like such a gentleman," said Versace. "They are very nice young people, a lovely couple, in fact. And then he told me how much he loved fashion. It was then I knew he was the right face for what I had in mind."
