Manolo Blahnik X Birkenstock
Post-pandemic, the fashion world has largely split into two camps when it comes to dressing: comfort or celebration. The former is the result of the lockdown-induced penchant for loungewear and loose clothing which has proven particularly difficult to shake off, while the latter has seen the return to ‘normal’ life embraced through clothes to hardly there, vertiginous heels and all the fashion adornments locked away for too long.
The SS22 and AW22 seasons proved that the fashion world is still very divided along these lines, but a very an exciting collaboration is here to finally bridge the gap in a particularly fabulous style – Manolo Blahnik for Birkenstock.
Yes really. Iconic Spanish designer Manolo Blahnik has teamed up with ever-loyal brand Birkenstock to create a shoe collection that blends high fashion, luxury and creative style with quality and functionality – and tons of that all-important comfort, too.
The resulting collection is by far the most vibrant and glamorous we’ve seen from a Birkenstock collab to date. Think classic Arizonas and Bostons in rich velvets, jewel tones and ornate clasps that belie the fundamental practicality of each design. Get ready to see the fashion insiders of the world clamor for a pair as soon as they drop – and rock them with virtually any outfit they can.
The Manolo Blahnik x Birkenstock collection hits stores and online March 24, with a second version set to launch later this year (current rumors suggest June). We’ll see you online.
But if, like us, you can’t wait that long, you can feast on each brand’s current offering here:
