It seems Lenny Kravitz has taken a cue from Cinna: in between touring and acting, he somehow found the time to design a line of shoes for TOMS.

The singer-turned-actor got involved with brand (known for its charitable mission — for every pair sold a pair goes to a child in need) after being pushed by his daughter Zoë Kravitz, a longtime fan of the company.

“The thing a lot of people don’t know about Lenny isn’t just his amazing personal taste in fashion and style, but he also designs wallpaper and furniture, and he sees a bigger picture,” TOMS founder Blake Mycoskie tells the Daily Mail.

Kravitz’s collection is made up of several different styles, including pairs with prints, a departure from the company’s basic, yet classic design. Lyrics from Kravitz’s song “Let Love Rule” inspired one of the designs, too.

“They remind me a little of the shoes my mom would wear in the ’70s,” Kravitz tells the Daily Mail, adding that the shoes fit seamlessly into his wardrobe. He even keeps fresh pairs on hand for guests to wear around his home.

The rock star hopes to join Mycoskie on a TOMS “shoe drop” in Brazil or the Bahamas this summer, just as Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen — who designed their own TOMSdid last year.
