Giuseppe Zanotti and K-Pop star G-Dragon are set to launch a footwear capsule collection

Italian luxury footwear designer Giuseppe Zanotti has teamed up with K-pop sensation G-Dragon for a capsule range of footwear. According to a report on WWD, the forthcoming collection will keep in-line with the Korean icon’s penchant for flamboyant fashion, and will include unisex loafer and a lace-up shoe. Both versions will be available in black with multi-colored glitter embellishing the upper, which sits atop of a lightweight rubber sole.

According to the Italian designer, working with G-Dragon is “something that we wanted to do as he is currently one of the biggest stars in Korea with a huge following in Asia.”

G-Dragon himself seemed pleased with the collaboration stating “These shoes turned out exactly how I wanted to. It’s not just girls or women who get excited and worked up over pretty shoes. I think guys can feel that way, too, and I think both will feel that way about these shoes.”
