From Rihanna to Vetements: the Manolo Blahnik collaborations we need to have
“I am excited about collaborating with Vetements,” Manolo Blahnik said. “I think it is of the moment to mix different brands and wear them the way you want. I like the freedom of that — fashion shows have become so boring — hence why I was intrigued and said yes when they approached me.” Vetements designer Demna Gvasalia has made a series of tweaks to the Manolo classic, removing the Hangisi’s sparkly signature buckle and transforming the satin shoes into a slingback, a court style, ankle boots and thigh highs. The shoes will be sold in limited edition co-branded packaging and be available from select retailers and online at manoloblahnik.com.
The limited-edition footwear collaboration between Rihanna and Manolo Blahnik launched in early May. The denim-driven collection, Rihanna x Manolo Blahnik, 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.
