DUBAI: Ancient Egypt was the creative source of US singer and songwriter Katy Perry’s latest sandal design.
Her fashion label, Katy Perry Collections, has released the summer shoes in black and gold. They feature the country’s pyramids and the ankh — an ancient Egyptian hieroglyphic symbol used in writing and art to represent the word for “life.”
Perry shared pictures of her new designs with her 130 million Instagram followers and wrote: “Sometimes my real life experiences inspire.”
In 2019, the “Fireworks” singer traveled to Egypt to celebrate her 35th birthday with her husband Orlando Bloom.
The couple toured the country’s historic sites, including Luxor, Aswan and Siwa Oasis. The hitmaker celebrated her birthday by enjoying a dinner at a temple in Edfu, a city located to the west of the Nile River.
In the announcement of her new collection, Perry shared a picture of herself riding a camel against a backdrop of the pyramids of Giza.
In April, she released heels and flats, in black, gold and orange, with the Eye of Horus, an ancient Egyptian symbol that represents well-being, healing and protection.
