One of the latest designer collaborations comes from preppy-turned-trendy J Crew and shoe powerhouse, Manolo Blahnik. While J Crew announced the collaboration during their Fall 2012 presentation at New York Fashion week, Mr. Blahnik may have had another take on it. He explained, "I have been approached so many times to do one, but I don’t want to work for a big company where I’ll have to have lots of meetings where I’m told what I can and can’t do. My niece, Kristina, handles that sort of thing for me – it’s just not for me. I was recently contacted by J Crew to do something with them, so I sent them over 45 pairs of shoes, and they announced we were doing a collaboration. I had no idea about it!"
The collection features a basic point toe pump in a variety of punchy patterns and colors. Check out some of the images below.
What do you think of this collaboration? It sounds a little fishy if these are the comments Manolo Blahnik is making!
