Rihanna and Manolo Blahnik Collaborate on a Shoe Collection
Watch out ladies, these boots are made to "Work."
Rihanna and footwear king Manolo Blahnik have teamed up on a one-of-a-kind shoe collection, called Denim Desserts, set to land in stores this May. And much like the bold, show-stopping style of RiRi herself, this luxurious collaboration is not for the faint of heart. The limited-edition line features sequins, denim, and gorgeous embroidery abound, making for some all-out glamorous looks.
"I have always loved Manolo Blahniks. Mr Manolo's shoes are the most luxurious and timeless shoe there is," Rihanna said in a statement. "His designs make women feel incredible when they wear them, so to be able to collaborate with him and combine our sensibilities has been a dream come true!"
Among the six new styles: a pale blue sequined heel, a denim strap sandal with beautiful embroidery, and a light denim tie-up bootie.
And while we wouldn’t expect anything less than statement-making style from the "Diamonds" singer, the "9 to 5" boot, a crystal-embellished thigh-high denim chap style—complete with stiletto heel and thigh belt—truly leaves us speechless.
As for shoe god Mr. Blahnik’s take on the collection? “This is an incredibly exciting collaboration and I am absolutely thrilled with the results," said the designer, pictured below with the songstress. "Working with Rihanna has been amazing and her drive, passion, creativity and style has been reflected in the designs, with fabulous results." We couldn’t agree more.
If you’re looking to score one of the pairs from this very fabulous collection be prepared: The price tag ranges from $895 to $3,995 per pair, and will have a very limited run in select Manolo Blahnik stores in London, New York, and Hong Kong from May 5.
