“I’m doing a shoe with Beyonce right now,” the Italian designer told Forbes. “Beyonce has very clear ideas—she knows exactly what she wants.” The duo won’t be producing a full collection, but instead one pair of what we’re sure will be fierce kicks. Zanotti said that he is in the final talks with Queen Bey’s stylist regarding the collaboration and then the superstar will make known what she likes and doesn’t like.
The designer, who is often the braggadocious namedrop in lyrics of hip-hop and R&B artists, went on singing the praises of Mrs. Carter. “The thing which she then also has over other celebrities, is that she has an amazing voice. She’s incredibly talented and she’s an amazing dancer—she’s complete. Few are like Beyonce.”
This isn’t the first time the two artistic wonders have combined their forces. For the Mrs. Carter Show World Tour, Zanotti and Carter fashioned a collection of showstopping footwear to complete her blinged out costumes.
How much Beyonce will pocket from the deal hasn’t been revealed, but after doing our own web perusing on designer collaborations, it’s safe to assume little Blue’s mommy will be taking home much more than a pretty penny. According to Times, Madonna made $4 million from her M by Madonna collection for consumer-friendly retailer H&M.
