Our first look at Rihanna’s collaboration with Manolo Blahnik was revealed in British Vogue as the singer and fashion ‘IT Girl’ of the moment is the magazine’s April cover.
“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 has been reflected in the designs, with fabulous results,” he enthused of the collaboration, named Denim Desserts. “I think everyone is going to love what they are about to see,” Blahnik told British Vogue.
The collaboration called Denim Dessert features several styles, fully festooned in crystals and sequins. “The first three are heels, [and] one is really exclusive. We only made 45 pairs because they’re really expensive to make,” stated Rihanna in her British Vogue cover interview. The exclusive design is an over the thigh cutout western chap called 9 to 5.
Denim Desserts will be available in Manolo Blahnik boutiques in New York, London and Hong Kong on May 5th with retail prices starting at $895 to $3,995.
