The Rihanna train is showing no signs of slowing down! The superstar just released news of a footwear collaboration with none other than famed designer and one of Ms. Fenty’s favorites, Manolo Blahnik.
The collection is all about denim, hitting stores and online on May 5th: three days after the Met Gala which we think is quite fitting. It’s inspired by Rih’s statement-making hand tattoos and features lace-up detailing, pointed-toes, beaded embellishment, a thigh-high length, and more.
Only six styles are featured in the assortment, which will be available at the brand’s stores in New York, London, and Hong Kong. The prices range from $767 to just under $3,500—on par with traditional Blahnik pricing. Expect a queue or two for this.
“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,” told Rihanna to WWD.
In speaking of the collaboration with WWD, Blahnik stated, “[Rihanna’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.”
By the way the world has reacted to her River Island and Fenty x PUMA collections, we’re certain this will be a hit. And she’s been spotted out in the brand too many times to count, thus the synergy here is perfect.
Thoughts on Rihanna x Manolo?
