Zayn Malik, through Vogue and Footwear News, debuted his upcoming line of shoes with luxury retailer Giuseppe Zanotti. The fashion brand also released a new, brooding campaign video to hype up the release scheduled for later this month. Speaking to Vogue, Zayn confesses his “darker aesthetic” when it comes to all things music and fashion, particularly when it comes to this current project.
“I like things which are a bit dark and weird, and Mr. Zanotti isn’t afraid to play with those elements either,” Zayn tells Vogue. The singer then goes on to explain how his line takes a lot of inspiration from “iconic rock ‘n’ roll styles.”
“Zayn is a fashion icon, truly,” Giuseppe tells Footwear News. “It’s who he is; it’s not fake. Just as his music is soulful, his style is natural. His whole approach is contemporary, an easy coolness with the right amount of modern rebel.”
