Rihanna and Manolo Blahnik Reveal Denim Desserts Collection
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.
“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.
“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.”
In April, Rihanna and Blahnik were interviewed by British Vogue. During the chat, RiRi said she fell in love with Blahniks because of the company’s prominence on “Sex in the City.” “I mean, the way they talked about those shoes,” she said. “It made any woman want to get them!”
The Rihanna x Manolo Denim Desserts collection, which hits stores May 5, includes a selection of sandals, pumps, and boots. Prices range from $767 to $3,483.
