Madonna's brother gets boot job

Big boots to fill ... Christopher Ciccone, Madonna's younger brother.

Big boots to fill ... Christopher Ciccone, Madonna's younger brother.

If you've ever wondered what Madonna may look like if she had a rather more quotidian life (read: had less work done) and was male, look no further than to her younger brother, Christopher Ciccone.

Now that we've got that out of the way, we can announce that the star's sibling is to dive into the fashion world and will launch his first line of rubber boots, The Ciccone Collection, at London Fashion Week in September.

The lesser-known Ciccone, 51, has collaborated with Novesta, Slovakian sneaker and gumboot makers and the line will debut in the high-octane fashion world of London's bi-annual design showcase.

Novesta's current offerings include the Judd, above. We can't guess what form Ciccone's leather, rubber and canvas version will take.

Novesta's current offerings include the Judd, above. We can't guess what form Ciccone's leather, rubber and canvas version will take.

Called "groundbreaking" by the design team, the "fashionable yet functional" boots will combine leather, canvas and rubber and have been given ambitious and classic silver screen names including Brigitte, Eva and Sofia.

The spring/summer 2013 show will add yet another entry to Ciccone's colourful CV; he has in the past variously turned his hand to writing, interior and furniture design, photography, dancing, art and has even toured with big sister, Madge.

The siblings have a far-from-peaceful relationship, as revealed in Ciccone's tell-all bestseller, Life with my Sister Madonna.

In the meantime, Madonna's MDNA world tour is in mid-flow, with hundreds of thousands flocking to see the star's scantily-clad, physically ambitious, gun-toting dance routines.

What Ciccone's reimagined Slovakian-heritage Wellington boots will look like is a closely-guarded secret but may well be the answer to 2013 festival circuit fashion, if recent UK mudbaths are anything to go by.

It also remians to be seen if Ciccone's touch is all that is need for the brand to undergo something of a Superga/Hush Puppies/Ugg transformation elevating a small, home brand to an international runway sensation.

  • Can safely say the opening paragraph of this is the most idiotic I have ever read in my life. So our siblings are just gender differentiated versions of us?! Try telling my siblings that - and none of us had "work done". Of course, Christopher fell out with his sister because he was a drug addict who squandered her money. Perhaps he'd look little better if he hadn't have wrecked himself on blow?

    • Not a very nice comment you left, just saying...... ;-( | (#aarondarc, You could defend by saying this is my own personal opinion/freedom of speech)...yes true, but even for adults plz stop the #bullying/negative comments about people you truly do not know. Remember that approach you were taught in life #aarondarc...'If don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all' :) | Excuse me with all due respect I do not know you, But I am sorry you carry so much negative energy from everything in your own life on your shoulders, Remember that can change for the better and that is My Wish for you,otherwise you wouldn't have left such a harsh comment and/or U just don't care, and if it's the latter that is your own loss. Trust me life is too short and is so much better when one lives by choice in a more supportive and positive way.)

    • We are all have our differences #aarondarc, We are all human and We have all made mistakes in life. Christopher and Madonna are siblings who have a very loving father who love them so much, they both lost their mother at a much younger age just like me, But that is not whats most important here. What is Important you ask? There is no way I could go to sleep without responding to knock your negative comments to the curbside and replace it with the support of his friends who truly know him and love him!! Christopher is a friend of mine I have known for over a decade now, we have spent great times together within our circle of close friends & I fully support both Christopher, (#ChristonpherCiccone, @CicconeOfficial, www.facebook.com/TheCicconeCollection) and his sister, (#Madonna, @MadonnaWorld, allaboutmadonna.com) OWN individual choices and individual talents stop being so negative, Thank you. Wishing you #aarondarc a Fantastic Week filled with light & Positive Energy....#Always! ~God Speed :)

  • What do his looks have to do with the boots?
    I agree with aarondarc. Bad and irrelevant opening paragraph.
