Rihanna and Manolo Blahnik collaboration in stores TODAYMay 5, 2016
Rihanna is serving up another major fashion collaboration. Combining style and music, RiRi teams up with Manolo Blahnik to create Denim Desserts, a collection of stylish new shoes. The capsule collection hits the stores today at 10 a.m.
“I have always loved Manolo Blahniks,” said the “Work” singer, who is also Puma’s Creative Director. “Mr. Manolo’s shoes are the most luxurious and timeless shoe there is! 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!”
The Denim Desserts collection is available to preview in the video below, which also features ANTI’s “Desperado” as its soundtrack.
The shoes in the collaboration feature six limited edition styles. They were designed personally by the dynamic design duo and are set to incorporate the inimitable style of Manolo Blahnik with a mix of Rihanna’s artistic influence.
Denim, sequins and beautiful artisan embroidery inspired by Rihanna’s hand tattoos are the main features, which make up the Spring 2016 capsule collection.
“She brought something extraordinary about her,” says Blahnik about the collaboration. “I thought, ‘That girl has got something unique.’ She’s got wonderful manners and a very, very, very clear mind. Beautiful, beautiful girl.”
The designer says the collection is “for a woman who knows what she wants, a decisive woman,” and “a woman who wants to go for it.”
