Vetements x Manolo Blahnik's Insane Thigh-High Boots Are Arriving at Net-A-Porter
From the runway to Rihanna and now Net-A-Porter.
Of all the collaborations that Vetements debuted in its Spring/Summer 2017 collection, it was the Manolo Blahnik boots that really stomped down the runway — to call jewel-toned boots that extend up above the thigh eye-catching is an understatement. They’ve since caught our attention on the likes of Rihanna and in various fashion editorials. The statement-making silhouette is now making its way onto Net-A-Porter this week.
The collaboration was an instantaneous one for the footwear brand. Blahnik himself revealed:
“I didn’t know much about [Vetements]. But I didn’t think too much. I always feel very curious to see how these youngsters are doing. So they came along, I liked them very much and I said, ‘Let’s do it.’ So we did. Everything I do is instant.”
Demna Gvaslia used Blahnik’s Hangisi silhouette as the base then added his Vetements twist — “They told me they would like to destroy it, and they destroyed the beautiful silk satin with brutality.”
Vetements x Manolo Blahnik will release via Net-A-Porter Thursday, February 22.
