What's better than emerging two completely different fashion worlds into one? In recent years more and more brands are experimenting and thinking outside of the box.

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"

Without a doubt this collection is going to take the Manolo women and introduce her to the world of comfort.

Everyone loves classics and it’s always a good start. The Birkenstock Arizona sandal and the Boston clog will be the focus of the first drop of the collection. Crafted in Manolo’s favourite material - velvet, as well as leather and embellished with crystal. A whole new addition to your outfits and a whole new experience for your feet.

How To Find The Right Jeans For Your Body

It is essential to know what jeans are best for you to maximise your confidence on a day-to-day basis!

While jeans are a staple in everyone’s wardrobes, it is sometimes hard to figure out the style, colour and length which may be the best fit for yourself. To work out the right type of jeans, you need to be able to learn and acknowledge your body type first.

Whether you are tall or petite, have an hourglass body or many more, here is your guide to uncover your body shape and what jeans will be the best for you.


Hourglass

An hourglass body means your top half and bottom half are well proportioned to one another. Your waist will be defined and smaller than the rest of your body. To accentuate those natural curves, you may want to opt for a fitted style of jeans, mainly flares or bootcut. These denim types will give focus to your waist while creating another hourglass appearance on your legs as the bottom of the jeans will widen. Another option for those who do not appeal to that style is slim jeans. Like flare denim, slim jeans will hug the waist, but also the rest of your leg, showcasing your calves as well. As for choosing the colour denim, light or washed denim would increase the appearance of your voluptuous curves.

Flare jeans, recommendations:

Circle

A circle body, often known as an apple-shaped body, suggests your upper body is fuller than your lower body. A lighter bottom half will centralise the focus to your slim legs. As for the style, mom jeans – which are cuffed at your ankles – will highlight your waist and the bottom of your legs. Another style that will also suit your shape is straight leg jeans. This style will still wrap your figure perfectly; however, a loosened fit will make your legs appear much slimmer.

Rectangle

If you have a rectangular body shape, your measurements will all be proportional to one another. You will also appear on the slimmer side and your waist may not be as defined; therefore, the focus purely needs to be on your legs. Skinny, slim and distressed jeans are going to be right for you. Tight jeans are going to accentuate your slenderness, while distressed jeans will give you a chance to show off some leg: a necessity for you when going out.

Skinny jeans, recommendations:

Inverted Triangle

An inverted triangle body shape is the complete opposite of your normal triangle. Your shoulders and chest will be the widest part of your body, while your legs are the slimmest. A pair of cropped straight jeans is going to be the ideal style for you. The style will fit your legs, without being too tight or loose, whilst the length will show off your slim clave. Darker denim will give the illusion of even slimmer legs and hips.

Cropped Jeans, recommendations:

Triangle

The triangular body consists of your hips and buttocks being the widest part of your body, creating the bottom of the triangle with your waist being the sides and your chest as the tip. Some women with this body shape may want to highlight their hips, as men and women typically see this trait as a positive feature. Therefore, you should most definitely go for a pair of dark wash mom jeans, as they naturally have a slight curve from your waist to the upper thigh which will give definition to your curves. However, some women may not want to bring attention to these parts, so boyfriend jeans would be the best style choice. Boyfriend jeans hug your waist but they are typically looser and look more relaxed. Occasionally, there will be some rips and frays on boyfriend jeans which adds more to the relaxed and chilled appearance, that they give off.
