Giuseppe Zanotti Debuts First Shoe Collaboration With Jennifer Lopez
Neiman Marcus Beverly Hills hosted a VIP celebration for the launch of the first ever Giuseppe for Jennifer Lopez shoe collection recently, among a star-studded crowd with guests like Ciara, Mary J. Blige, French Montana and Alyssa Milano. A celebratory mood fell upon Wilshire Boulevard as guests gathered to view the exceptional collection, exclusive to Neiman Marcus in the Los Angeles area.
“I’ve always loved how Jennifer wears my shoes and admired her innate sense of style,” says Giuseppe Zanotti. “More than a muse, Jennifer was a great design partner and this collection really represents a strong, sensual, sophisticated woman-just like Jennifer,” he adds.
“I, like so many other women, love a great pair of shoes,” says Jennifer. “Whether I’m walking the red carpet, performing on stage or meeting my girls for lunch on a day off, shoes pull a look together and literally and figuratively lift me up. With Giuseppe, we created an ultra-modern, feminine collection of killer heels, sexy flats and fashion-forward sneakers. And as you would expect, there’s just the right amount of sparkle,” Jennifer shares on the collection.
In honor of the collaboration, Jennifer Lopez and Giuseppe Zanotti personally revealed four unique windows on Wilshire Boulevard upon walking the red carpet. The windows feature Lopez’s most iconic outfits comprising her famous Versace dress amongst others, with the Giuseppe and Jennifer Lopez collaboration and Zanotti’s seasonal must-haves surrounding the outfits. Jennifer and Giuseppe pulled the velvet rope to reveal The Show window, with Backstage, Red Carpet and Boudoir to follow.
The Show features beams of light designed with crystal beads filling the space with sparkles as iconic Jennifer looks are on display, including her famous red carpet gowns, while floating plates display the collaboration styles and disco balls add to the excitement. Backstage evokes the expectation felt at a live show and showcases Jennifer’s dressing room in the midst of performance preparation. Then, there is Red Carpet where Jennifer stands on the red carpet, with a step and repeat backdrop covered in the collaboration logo. Lastly, Boudoir is where the collaboration was born as Jennifer and Giuseppe sit in her closet discussing it, while surrounded by shelves of shoes and racks of garments.
As guests made their way inside the store’s newly renovated Ladies Shoe Salon, Jennifer and Giuseppe took to the stage and spoke of the collaboration. Models donning the shoes walked throughout the crowd and the duo signed shoes for customers while enjoying beats by DJ Kiss and passed bites of Maine lobster and ahi tuna tartare. The Giuseppe for Jennifer Lopez Collection is available for sale now at Neiman Marcus Beverly Hills and NeimanMarcus.com.
