Manolo Blahnik links up with Farfetch on exclusive shoe collection
As part of the collaboration, Manolo Blahnik has designed a new bespoke heel in five colour ways exclusively for Farfetch.
The style, titled ‘Scipios’, takes inspiration from the designer’s famous ‘stiletto’ design and NYC artist Mark Rothko, who is known for his vibrant colour field paintings.
An architecturally inspired sculpted heel and a pointed closed toe give the exclusive style an elegant edge, while its patent material and contrasting soles add the final touches to the reimagined strappy silhouette.
The collection comes in five colour ways, including black, nude, orange, pink and white, and is available exclusively at Farfetch from Tuesday.
It marks the launch of Manolo Blahnik as a brand on the Farfetch site, following the introduction of MonoloBlahnik.com – powered by Farfetch Black & White – in March 2016.
“We are delighted to be partnering with Farfetch from Spring ’17. The exclusive Scipios style, which launches the relationship perfectly, embodies the essence of a simple yet perfectly formed Manolo Blahnik and I am pleased it marks out arrival on the dynamic and yet contemporary site,” said Manolo Blahnik CEO Kristina Blahnik.
“Manolo Blahnik is renowned for effortless style and outstanding craftsmanship. We are honoured to be part of the creation of this bespoke style and excited to bring this one-of-a-kind Manolo Blahnik design to our global customers exclusively on Farfetch.com,” added Farfetch CMO Stephanie Horton.
Manolo Blahnik’s Scipios heel and further SS17 collection are available for Farfetch customers from Tuesday this week.
