ManoloBlahnik and Birkenstock have actually simply dropped the partnership of dreams, a collection of flat shoes so desirable that even Carrie Bradshaw would happily ditch her high heels for them.
The 2 labels, one epitomising high-end glamour, the other convenience and casual cool, do not in the beginning look look like they would be a great fit, however believe me when I state they are.
Each has actually brought its distinct design to the collection. Birkenstock shoes are decorated with crystals and packaged in an unique polka dot shoebox and dust bag following standard Manolo Blahnik style. They are highly coloured– you’ll acknowledged Carrie’s royal blue shade– making them the most luxe set of summer season shoes you’ll own.
The not likely partnership initially happened in 2020, when Manolo Blahnik and his niece, business CEO Kristina Blahnik, were included in the Birkenstock spring/summer project. Photographed by Jack Davison, they used their own Birkenstocks, marking the beginning point for the job.
‘Birkenstocks have been in my wardrobe since the very beginning (of time!!) – I have loved and worn mine for many years. I am thrilled that we have been able to collaborate, fusing the Manolo Blahnik aesthetic with the everyday comfort of Birkenstocks is simply wonderful!,’ states Blahnik.
OliverReichert, CEO of Birkenstock, includes, ‘We are delighted to collaborate with Manolo Blahnik, whose unrivalled craftsmanship has long set the bar for shoemaking. This is a unique collection, fusing our trademark designs with the flair of Manolo Blahnik, to create pieces that embrace a bold and directional aesthetic that takes both to a new level.’
