A Giuseppe x Zayn Malik Collab Is Coming

by Eliza Florendo

Zayn Mailk may have left the rest of One Direction behind, but now he's got a new partner: Giuseppe Zanotti x Zayn Malik is a thing now, and it looks like it's going to be good. While a little unexpected (I never thought of Zayn as a shoe designer, really), it sort of does make sense given his love of fashion, and, you know, gracing the pages of Vogue, GQ, and Paper Magazine.

There's no denying this guy's got serious style. Not only is he a singer-songwriter, but he also happens to be a t-shirt designer. I mean, just look through his Instagram and you'll find countless photos of him posing in some incredibly tight t-shirts. Or, you know, no shirt at all. Get you a man that can do both! In Zayn's case, he can just as easily kill it in a suit or relaxed crewneck and jeans. I'm just going to say...he knows what he's doing.

And apparently, he knows what he's doing with footwear, too! Malik is collaborating with Giuseppe Zanotti on a shoe collaboration. Funnily enough, his girlfriend and supermodel Gigi Hadid is also a fan of Zanotti. Who wouldn't be? I'm totally in love with the sky-high heels and totally sexy styles.

On Thursday, Malik posted a few Instagrams announcing the new collab, using the hashtag #GiuseppexZayn. What's the catch, though? Well, it wont' be coming out until 2017.

Those boots look pretty dope, though! I mean, so does the rest of his look.

At least we know it will be in January, early on in the year.

Zayn told GQ, "Style is not being afraid to be bold about some things, or to say what it is you have to say. I feel like Giuseppe does that with his collection—and I try to do that with my music. So it kind of works.” I can totally see that. Two people that totally slay in their industries are coming together for one genius collaboration.

Though it's a men's collection and I won't necessarily be able to wear the shoes, I'm excited for those that are able to! Knowing Zayn's sense of style and Giuseppe's impeccable craftsmanship, this one won't disappoint.
