How would you describe your relationship with model Anja Rubik?
Anja represents a sophisticated and cool woman. She’s so versatile. She changes each time. Like every women she likes to change a lot. We’ve been friends for a long time and I like how she interprets my collections. We have also designed a capsule collection together. The creation of this capsule collection has been a pleasurable and exciting game between me as a designer, with my experience and sensitivity for women’s shoes, and Anja, an iconic woman, top model, muse of many of the most important fashion houses. It happened naturally in my atelier, our ideas and skills fused together, listening to music, chatting and having a good time. I believe it has been a great experience and an important exercise for both of us. A study, sort of an analytical one, of the ideal shoe for a woman on one side and on the other side the ideal woman for my shoes. I believe she has a huge potential, I see a real talent in her. Her style, taste and sense of proportions after nearly two decades spent working in the fashion world are very recognisable and distinct.
Do you have a favorite model or favorite photographer?
I was struck by Milla Jovovich pictured by Peter Lindbergh, displayed at Corso Como in Seoul. She reflects a timeless, indomitable beauty. That’s a really great shooting. – extract from Gisueppe Zanotti's interview in Life and Times
