Object Manolo Blahnik for Birkenstock
Manolo Blahnik and Birkenstock may seem an unlikely match, but in truth they are the perfect pair. ‘Aesthetically we may look different but fundamentally we have the same values,’ Blahnik has said. ‘Exquisite fit, craftsmanship and comfort are the most important parts of both of our shoe-making design and production.’ Not surprisingly, the Manolo Blahnik for Birkenstock capsule collection, available to shop from 24 March, has already sparked a fashion frenzy. For the one-of-a-kind collection, Blahnik has reimagined two of Birkenstock’s signature styles, adding velvet and crystals to the Arizona sandal and the Boston clog. We expect this collection to fly, so get in line now.
