Via NYPost: Rihanna’s got shoes on the brain.
In June, the singer will launch her third and final collaboration with Manolo Blahnik, the designer exclusively tells Threads.
“She came to my studio in Paris — the building next door was being renovated, and there were a million workers,” Blahnik says. “The men saw her, and they’re yelling, ‘Rihanna, Rihanna, Rihanna,’ and she went out to the window and said, ‘Hello,’ and blew kisses. It was fantastic. We had a wonderful two days in Paris, dancing,” he adds with a laugh. “An old boy like me, moving around and dancing was kind of extraordinary.”
The So Stoned sandal capsule they created in between dance breaks — priced from $1,265 to $2,325 and debuting in June — features Swarovski crystals and Perspex clear heels.
While Rihanna looks stunning in her Manolos, Blahnik doesn’t mind when she kicks them off: “She looks better with no shoes, actually. She looks beautiful. No makeup, nothing. I’m absolutely mesmerized by her face and her eyes.”
It seems they found shoe love.
