The new year is starting off pretty hot for Zayn Malik with a sizzling new song collaboration with Tay Tay, a strong relationship with main squeeze Gigi and now a first look at his work as a budding fashion designer.
We’ll have to wait a little longer to see what the singer can do with clothes when his Versus collection with Donatella Versace drops, but for now, check out Giuseppe for Zayn, a line of new men’s shoes including sneakers and boots done in collaboration with the Italian shoe smith. “Zayn is a fashion icon, truly,” Giuseppe said of the collection. “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.”
Featuring lots of black with some touches of green, the collection is pretty wearable and looks comfortable (guys obviously don’t have to worry about heels and all that) and does have a very “Zayn” feel to it. “I really believe style comes from taking chances, being bold and not being afraid to express yourself,” Zayn said in a statement. “I feel Giuseppe does that with his collections—and I try to do that with my music. So when the idea came up to collaborate, I thought ‘yes, this would work.’”
