Working with Kanye West might sound strenuous to some, but for Giuseppe Zanotti, it was quite the symbiotic relationship. In a piece for Style.com, the designer described what it was like partnering with Yeezy for their sneakers and “Cruel Summer” collection.
“As artists, we naturally share a similar creative process as well as a mutual passion for fashion and music,” he wrote.
Calling Kanye a “longtime friend,” Zanotti gave insight on how he and the rapper’s working relationship is also a personal one.
“Working together was a natural progression,” he wrote. “ He taught me something, I taught him something. I showed him my archives, and he sang something for me and my team. It was good synergy, exchange of sensation, and love.”
