Halle Berry Launches A New Shoe Collection Called 5th Avenue
Halle Berry is adding to her empire.
The 45-year-old actress, who already has a slew of fragrances under her belt, has teamed up with German retailer Deichmann Shoes to design an entire line of footwear. And the retailer couldn’t be happier to be in business with the Oscar-winning actress.
“We are very pleased that Halle Berry is our new partner,” said the company’s owner Heinrich Deichmann. “She is an internationally-renowned artist and a global style icon.”
For Halle, the shoe collection symbolizes more than just a business venture. Instead, the star calls it a dream come true. “Women have always loved shoes,” she told Mail Online. “It’s like if your hair is not right and your shoes are not right, the woman is not right. If both of them are right, you’re pretty much OK. And shoes are a statement. They can be very sexy; they can say something about where you are in the day; they can say what your mood is; they give you a chance to accessorize. And I’m a girl that loves to change my shoes all the time. It’s an expression of who you are really. I’m a girl if I find a shoe that I really like I like to get them in all colours. I’m big on that. I would say I’m a nude girl because this goes with everything. You can dress it up and dress it down. I can’t think of any girl who wouldn’t want her name on a brand of shoes. I think that’s pretty cool.”
Halle is currently in Berlin and just shot the commercial for her new 40-piece collection called 5th Avenue by Halle Berry which will include wedges, high-heeled sandals, and slingbacks. “I like the concept of it,” Halle said of her ad. “It really relates to my life and who I am as a person and what I do for a living”
