We all love Rihanna. And we all love shoes. That’s why it could be interesting for you to know something about her new project.
We assisted to her debute in the fashion industry at the New York Fashion Week, with a collection for Puma called “Fenty Puma by Rihanna“. The project is inspired by japanese street culture, with some gothic hints and the celebration of Puma’s black&white iconic match.
But this time we’re dealing with something different and completely exciting: Manolo Blahnik drew six different pair of shoes (limited edition-only 45 samples produced for each of them), inspired by Rihanna’s tattos, personality and style. They’re made of jeans, with precious jais embroidery, pearls and paillettes.
All these stilettos, booties and cuissards (co-signed by Rihanna & Manolo Blanhik) will be available starting from May 5in the London, New York and Hong Komg stores exclusively (waiting lists already opened), priced between £650 – $895, to £2.950 – $3.995.
Kristina Blahnik (CEO of Manolo Blanhik) confessed that “For Manolo Blahnik, Rihanna was a collaboration we were really excited about. We firmly believed the two of them working hand-in-hand together with their creativity would achieve something totally unique and very special – we are really, really excited for the collection to launch.”
You will find more details in the next April Vogue UK, as you can see from the preview:
