“I’ve always loved how Jennifer wears my shoes and admired her innate sense of style,” says Giuseppe Zanotti of that icon we all call JLo. And yeah, who doesn’t marvel at her ability to take a white tank top and a pair of jeans and make them look like the most brilliant idea ever?
Of course, the key is often a killer pair of heels and with Giuseppe for Jennifer Lopez, her brand-new collaboration with the Italian icon of super sexy footwear, she’s got that element on lock.

“More than a muse, Jennifer was a great design partner and this collection really represents a strong, sensual, sophisticated woman—just like Jennifer,” says the stiletto innovator. It’s fun to imagine those two at work: getting ideas down on paper, talking through details and textiles, seeing the styles come to life … but we can do one better than daydreams.
To celebrate today’s launch, we have the designer’s own gorgeous watercolor drawings of three of our favorite styles, plus Jennifer’s insight on what made the partnership so real, and what makes the collection such a knockout.
