Now more than ever major couture houses are seen collaborating on one-off collections with the aesthetically opposite brands. We have seen some great collections thanks to a variety of brands collaborating with each other, and that is the reason fashion is moving forward and keeping everyone on their toes.
Manolo Blahnik gives the iconic Birkenstock a makeover for this summer.
One of the most luxurious footwear brands in the world comes together with one of the world's most comfortable. It is for sure not the first time we see glamour and comfort to come together. Just in time for the warm seasons Manolo Blahnik and Birkenstock surprise us with an exciting collaboration. They want to showcase both their creativity and craftsmanship and introduce the Manolo woman to the world of comfort. Blahnik is known for partnering with various brands and celebrities but this is said to be one of his most memorable collaborations to date.
The Story Behind The Collection
One picture sparked the idea behind this new and exciting partnership. Manolo and Kristina Blahnik, his niece and chief executive of the brand, were invited to star in Birkenstocks 2020’ Spring/Summer Campaign. One thing led to another and now we are looking at the final results of the collaboration. The two brands seem to be the exact opposite but if you think about it they have more in common than we think - they are equally dedicated to high-quality craftsmanship and comfort. "We share many of the same brand and design values as Birkenstock and we are thrilled to bring this to life with the new Manolo Blahnik for Birkenstock collection", said Kristina Blahnik. “Our goal was to create timeless, high-quality, crafted to be cherished and enjoyed pieces and I am delighted with the results"
