According to recent footwear news reports, singer Katy Perry has been keeping a secret; not only is she passionate about singing, she’s also passionate about shoes and will launch Katy Perry Footwear next month, a line she describes as “vibrant, expressive, and defining.”
Perry and Global Brands Group Holding Ltd. have formed a joint venture that Perry hopes will make it possible for those who are not rich or excessive to enjoy shoes that are somewhat unconventional, many including wacky or whimsical touches. Perry said that money was scarce in the early days of her career, and as a teen.
Before Perry made the move to Los Angeles, she had a pair of shoes that was Dalmatian-themed, shoes that she claims started so many conversations she had to have them resoled numerous times. These shoes are the inspiration behind “Jessica” Easter Bunny flats that are scheduled to launch on February 16. Those who love quirky and unique will no doubt fall for Perry’s shoe line!
Global Brands President of Footwear, Jimmy Gabriel, said he’s banking on the creative singer’s broad appeal and “imaginative” fashion sense to snatch a solid share of the female market, particularly those 16 to 40 years old.
Who will carry Perry’s new shoe line? To date, it is revealed that Amazon.com, Lord & Taylor, Macy’s Inc., and Zappos have signed on.
