Proenza Schouler to Launch Shoe Line for Giuseppe Zanotti
Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez are about to offer a head-to-toe look. Proenza Schouler — which sold a 45 percent stake to Valentino Fashion Group SpA in July — has inked a licensing deal with shoe maven Giuseppe Zanotti to produce women’s shoes. A limited offering will be launched for resort sales, with the first complete collection bowing for spring 2009. Sales will be conducted out of the Proenza Schouler and the Vicini SpA showrooms in New York, Milan and Paris. Vicini was founded by Zanotti and his wife, Cinzia, in 1996.
