Water Mill mega-star Jennifer Lopez is pairing with Giuseppe Zanotti once again to co-design a fierce shoe collection.
Jennifer Lopez tries on a strappy, snake-embossed gladiator sandal with a little help from shoe maestro Giuseppe Zanotti.
What would it be like to walk in Jennifer Lopez’s shoes? Figuratively speaking, of course—no one can match the multitalented singer, dancer, actress, and fashion designer, who makes her summer home in Water Mill. But you literally can walk in the budding shoe designer’s footwear this season.
The Giuseppe for Jennifer Lopez haute celebrity collection makes the perfect transition from summer to fall. Booties, stiletto sandals, and over-the-knee boots—all named for Lopez’s favorite roles in television and film (last season she used the names of family members)—comprise the sexy lineup. Each shoe also features crystals, the common thread of the collection. Much like the duo’s first go-around, the second collaboration embodies both of their aesthetics, spotlighting designer Giuseppe Zanotti’s expert craftsmanship and Lopez’s undeniable red-carpet glamour.
Take, for example, the Gertie bootie, named for Lopez’s role in Jersey Girl. Covered in Swarovski crystals, these showstoppers come in eye-catching maroon and everyday black. Echoing the actress’s role in Maid in Manhattan, the Marisa over-the-knee boot works for those who want to lace up their look with a sparkle of dangling crystals. There’s also the Harlee, a feminine stiletto sandal that’s a welcome addition to any daring autumn wardrobe, straight out of TV’s Shades of Blue. You’ll be the talk of the town as the fall social season kicks off. $1,495–$2,795. 806 Madison Ave., New York, 212-650-0455; giuseppezanottidesign.com
