Details on Elton's Million Dollar Wardrobe
GEOX the premier Italian brand famous for the innovative use of breathable technology and the renown British shoe designer Patrick Cox have created the eye catching footwear that Elton John will wear during his new show The Million Dollar Piano, which has just opened at Caesar’s Palace in Vegas.
“I’ve made hundreds of pairs of shoes for Elton over the past 20 years” says Patrick Cox “but this is the first time I’ve designed the shoe that Elton will wear on stage. Fundamentally it’s a traditional English brogue but, Elton being Elton, we’ve made it in metallic leather in all colours of the rainbow and we’ve melded tradition with contemporary by incorporating GEOX innovative leather patent, which makes leather soles waterproof ”
Mr Mario Moretti Polegato, Chairman of GEOX comments "I am happy to collaborate with such a great artist as Elton John, whose music I have always loved, and I see fashion and innovation coming together on a stage that will attract global attention."
The Million Dollar Piano Tour opened at Caesar’s Palace on 28th September 2011 and is named after the unique Yamaha piano that Elton John and Yamaha created especially for the show.
GEOX and Patrick Cox have recently teamed up to create a capsule footwear collection for Spring Summer 2012, which is the start of an ongoing collaboration between GEOX and Patrick Cox. The Spring Summer 2012 collection will be distributed in key European markets such as the UK, Italy and France as well as in North America and Asia
GEOX new Spring-Summer 2012 collection for woman, man and children will be regularly distributed worldwide in all GEOX SHOPS and independent retailers.
