â€œJennifer is an icon and has an innate sense of style. My shoes are made for strong women who want to feel fabulous, and Jennifer is the epitome of that,â€ Zanotti said, adding that the singer was the clear inspiration behind this fall â€™17 capsule collection.â€œShe is beautiful, feminine and sophisticated. I love how she embodies my aesthetic in her own personal way.â€
Arriving in stores in August, the exclusive collection features four styles, including lace-up over-the-knee boots, embellished booties and sandals, retailing from $1,495 to $2,795. Crystal embellishments remain the core element of their fall season collab, according to the designer, while suedes in black, burgundy and dark gray will reflect a wintry look.
Here, Lopez dishes on whatâ€™s to come for fall â€™17.
What did you want to do differently for the second collection?
â€œThis collection is a natural evolution from last seasonâ€™s debut. The fall â€™17 capsule embodies the same unique style but developed further. All the important projects in my life are deeply intertwined. For spring, each style was named after people who have a special place in my heart. For fall, I wanted to pay homage to some of my favorite roles from my performances in television and film.â€
What have you learned about the shoe industry?
â€œDesigning shoes requires a lot of discipline. You have to obsess over every single detail to make the perfect shoe. I enjoyed working with Giuseppe, who has a natural talent and a breadth of experience in fashion.â€
Does this collection represent your personalÂ style?
â€œDefinitely. Itâ€™s the perfect mix of me and Giuseppe.â€
What was your reaction to the success of the first collaboration?
â€œI was happy with the outcome of the line, and it was a rewarding experience for me to see such a positive reaction to the shoes.â€
Youâ€™ll be back performing in Vegas soon. Has the show changed since its debut?
â€œWe make a few changes during each run, especially when Iâ€™m adding new music to the show that Iâ€™ve released. Performing in Vegas brings me so much happiness because I get to appear in front of my fans night after night, and their energy is infectious.â€
