Giuseppe Zanotti has announced its collaboration with The Estate of Michael Jackson to create Giuseppe Tribute To Michael Jackson, a black diamond and ruby-studded pair of sneakers. At the Michael Jackson Diamond Celebration in Las Vegas in honour of what would be Michael’s 60th birthday, Paris and Prince Jackson initiated an auction for Number One, a one-of-a-kind, ruby and diamond studded pair of shoes, to benefit The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation. Mr. Zanotti was at the event to present the exclusive style.
The final bidding for Number One will take place as part of Julien’s Auctions Icons & Idols Auction, live at the Hard Rock Café in New York on 9-10 November. Number One will be the only pair of the 2,000 pieces limited-edition numbered sneakers to be encrusted with approximately 120 genuine black diamonds (108 carats) and approximately 55 rubies (18 carats). Expected to raise a minimum of $30,000-$50,000 at auction, the mid top sneaker testifies to Giuseppe Zanotti’s longstanding admiration for the singer for whom he created several custom-made pieces.
The remaining 1,999 Giuseppe Tribute to Michael Jackson pairs will be available in selected Giuseppe Zanotti stores worldwide and on giuseppezanotti.com from mid-October and the limited edition collection will also be sold exclusively at Flannels in the UK.
