Rihanna is no stranger to designing shoes. She is the women’s creative director for Puma, after all. So when Manolo Blahnik tapped the singer for a limited-edition collection, the design duo embarked into cutting-edge territory. The denim-inspired range features a variety of boots (Rihanna’s favorite is the sexy thigh-high style) and heels that are versatile enough to fit into anyone’s wardrobe.
What truly caught our eye, however, is the embroidery on these shoes, all of which mimics Rihanna’s beautiful hand tattoos. Each shoe has an intricate embellishment of sequins and beads fit for royalty, and with names like “Sea Salts” and “Rih-Vi’s,” it’s hard to pick a favorite. Rihanna and Manolo Blahnik announced their partnership in British Vogue, where Rihanna detailed her excitement:
“The day I see a woman in the street wearing my shoes…I am sorry for that woman because I’m going to literally run after her, shouting, ‘Stop! Selfie! Who are you? Where did you get them?’ I’m going to have a moment.”
Retailing at $895 to $3,995, the collection will debut May 5 and will be available for purchase across several cities, including New York. Scroll to pick out your favorite pair of denim Manolos and shop ’em now. Plus, get a peek at Rihanna’s April Vogue shoot.
