Manolo Blahnik Collection for J.Crew

Manolo Blahnik often created shoes for fashion shows Carolina Herrera and Zac Posen. But now he has joined forces with J.Crew in the first collaboration with a democratic brand.

The result of their collaboration could be seen the other day, when the J.Crew brand introduced the latest seasonal clothing line as part of New York Fashion Week.
Jenna Lions, president of J.Crew, literally fell in love with Manolo Blahnik's BB model and persuaded the designer to make a joint collection.

When creating shoes for J.Crew, Blahnik used his classic “BB” model — simple, pointed-toed, thin-heeled pumps — and ultimately got the 41 variation of it. The designer made new shoes in different colors (including in mirrored gold and silver), as well as from different fabrics - suede, tweed and other materials that were originally present in things from the J.Crew collection.

"This is a way to combine the distant and more accessible. Modern women dress today - no one can express it better than J.Crew," said George Malkemus, president of Manolo Blahnik USA.

The collection will be sold in the spring in selected J.Crew stores and in the brand's online boutique. And the shoes will cost from 595 $ to 645 $. Apparently, it is precisely this price range that Malkemus considers to be the personification of “fashion and accessibility”. Based on materials from cosmo.ru and buro247.ru.
