For the Giuseppe Zanotti Design spring/summer 2012 collection, the American rapper, singer, and record producer Kanye West worked in collaboration with Giuseppe Zanotti, and the models on the runway wore heavily beaded heels, the outcome of their co-design project.
The shoes were immediately featured in many discussions, posts, and fashionista blogs. They were later featured in Harper's Bazaar Australia edited by Christine Centenera, a fashion editor of Bazaar and a freelance stylist, who reportedly consulted on Kanye's collection. Colette in Paris, a French luxury and highly selective clothing and accessory retailer, recently announced the arrival of the shoes via Twitter
The sandals are in calf leather, with embroidery pearls, back and heel covered in black leather, with leather sole and zip fastening. They are on sale at €4,420 (inclusive of VAT).
