You surely remember their Denim Desserts collection, and the iconic denim boots seen both on Rihanna and J. Lo in her video “Ain’t Your Mama”. They made a boom in the shoe world, creating a collection that sold out within couple of weeks after its release.
“I have always loved Manolo Blahniks. 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.”
“This is an incredibly exciting collaboration and I am absolutely thrilled with the results. Working with Rihanna has been amazing and her drive, passion, creativity and style have been reflected in the designs, with fabulous results- I hope everyone will love what they are about to see.”
Now, they have teamed up again for their second footwear collection. The range, entitled Savage, comprises three style of boots. Inspired by Timberland, a brand Rihanna loves, the collection is also reflective of the singer’s love of shearling and suede. There is, of course, a thigh-high style, this time lined with sheep-skin and featuring a laser-cut floral brocade design, in keeping with Rihanna’s latest Marie Antoinette themed Fenty x Puma collection. There is also a lace-up knee-length style, featuring fur trim running up and down the sides, as well as ankle-boots with fur trim, inspired by a previous Manolo Blahnik design worn by Jennifer Lopez and Beyoncé.
The limited-edition collection goes on sale on November 16 at manoloblahnik.com and select stores.
