Manolo Blahnik & Rihanna team up on a shoe collaboration
Rihanna joins forces with legendary shoe designer Manolo Blahnik on a denim-driven collection that will debut May 5th. It features sequins and embroidery influenced by Rihanna’s hand tattoos. They appear on designs including thigh-high boots and an open-toe sandal.
The limited-edition capsule collection includes six styles, a selection of sandals, pumps and boots. Prices range from 541.67 pounds, or $767, to 2,458.33 pounds, or $3,483.50.
The collection will be sold at Manolo Blahnik’s stores in London, New York and Hong Kong.
“The day I see a woman in the street wearing my shoes…I am sorry for that woman because I’m going to literally run after her, shouting, ‘Stop! Selfie! Who are you? Where did you get them?’ I’m going to have a moment,” said Rihanna in an interview that appears in the April issue of British Vogue.
Blahnik said the singer’s “drive, passion, creativity and style have been reflected in the designs, with fabulous results — I think everyone is going to love what they are about to see.”
