The pop star and her collaborator Billy Walsh will receive the inaugural award for their Puma x Dua Lipa Flutur Drop 2.

Footwear News announced that Dua Lipa will be the recipient of a new award at the upcoming 36th annual Footwear News Achievement Awards.

The pop star will be awarded the inaugural trophy for Collection of the Year along with her longtime Puma collaborator designer and songwriter Billy Walsh for her Puma x Dua Lipa Flutur Drop 2 collection. The awards, colloquially called the Shoe Oscars, are slated to take place Nov. 30 at Cipriani South Street in New York City.

“The second drop is inspired by rave culture and old-school rave posters,” Lipa said in a statement on Puma’s website about her sophomore line for the brand, which features her signature ʙuттerfly logo. “That’s where I drew inspiration as well on colorways and how I wanted things to look for this collection.” In addition to shoes, the collection also contains dresses, pants, gym bags, basketball shorts, bralettes and more.

Other winners to be honored at this year’s Footwear News Achievement Awards include Christian Louboutin (Lifetime Achievement Award), Kith (Retailer of the Year), Lululemon (Launch of the Year) and the late Virgil Abloh for his Louis Vuitton x Nike Air Force 1 (Shoe of the Year). Puma will also be recognized with the Sustainability Leadership Award at the ceremony.
