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 Salt Denim" 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. In the meantime, read on to pick out your favorite pair of denim Manolos and get a sneak peek of Rihanna`s Vogue shoot. You can see the full shoot in the April issue of British Vogue on sale Thursday.
