There has been talk going around that Kanye West won’t be showing another collection during the upcoming Paris leg of fashion week, after previously showing collections there twice before, but if you thought he was dropping his passion for design, you’d be wrong. To tide us over until he’s ready for another collection, Kanye teams up with shoe connoisseur Giuseppe Zanotti again to design some white hot heels.
Similar to his first shoe design with the Italian brand, Kanye sticks with the theme of white – which is also a theme seen on the cover of his G.O.O.D Music compilation Cruel Summer – and in ode to the album’s artwork, stuns with an all-white, cut out leaf design as the focal point, clearly drawing on Grecian inspiration.
Although Theophilus London was the first to photograph the shoes while out in Milan, Giuseppe Zanotti’s facebook update has made it official, saying: “Cruel Summer”…..The sandals created by Giuseppe Zanotti in collaboration with US rapper Kanye West.”
There’s no word yet when or how much the shoes will be retailing for, but with his last shoe being sold for nearly $6k we can take a wild guess that it’s gonna cost a pretty penny.
