Polish-born supermodel Anja Rubik has been hard at work with Italian shoe designer Giuseppe Zanotti on a new capsule collection of footwear and accessories.
The Giuseppe for Anja Rubik collection is set to debut at the beginning of March. An open-toe stiletto pump studded with gold piercings and a black suede shoulder are two of the designs which have been previewed, and which are expected to retail at an average price of $1,200.
According to the Italian the collaboration was a happy accident — “it happened naturally in my atelier where our ideas and skills fused together, listening to music, chatting and having a good time,” he told WWD.
The Polish supermodel certainly likes to flex her creative muscles. Last year, working with her husband Sasha Knezevic, she relaunched avant-garde print publication 25 Magazine, ringing in fashion favors from models like Karlie Kloss and Abbey Lee Kershaw for the kinky sex-themed issue.
A video published by the Zanotti brand gives fans a glimpse behind the scenes as the model is photographed brandishing the new shoes and accessories, and posing alongside the eponymous designer.
