It’s official — Katy Perry has just announced that she is launching a shoe collection and we could not be more excited! We couldn’t think of anyone better to start a fun line of shoes, considering Katy’s style is so fun and unique. We can’t wait to shop the collection in spring 2017, can you?
Katy Perry, 31, is on to her latest venture and we are so excited for her. Katy is not only known for her amazing songs, but also her quirky and amazing style. She always pushes the limits with her outfits — both on and off stage — so, it’s only right that she finally came out with her own shoe line.
Katy partnered with Global Brands Group for the brand, Katy Perry Footwear. The collection will launch in spring 2017 at select retail, department and specialty stores, as well as e-commerce, but was first introduced at the FN PLATFORM tradeshow. The materials will include “lucite and vinyl, mixed with metallic and floral prints.” The prices will range from $59 to $299 — how amazing is that!?
“It’s been a creative goal of mine to be a real contributor in the affordable fashion space,” Katy said to our sister site, WWD. “Launching a footwear collection felt like a natural first step for me. After years of investigating and researching partnerships to find the right fit for the debut of my line, I found that Global Brands most resonated with my artistic ideas. They understand my vision, my eye for detail, and have the international reach and resources to bring my canvas of ideas to life.”
Jason Rabin, president and chief marketing officer North America of Global Brands Group Holding Ltd., said in a statement, “In addition to being one of the biggest music icons of today, Katy Perry is an incredibly talented and creative individual, whose style and confidence speak to women around the world.”
We cannot wait for Katy’s shoe collection to launch — you can already see from the sketches that there’s going to be a lot of colors, prints, and embellishments!
