MANOLO BLAHNIK X FARFETCH
Farfetch will begin retailing footwear by Spanish designer Manolo Blahnik this month. To mark the collaboration, Manolo Blahnik has created a capsule collection, Scipios, that will be exclusively available on Farfetch.com. Inspired by the designer’s original stiletto design and New York-based abstract artist Mark Rothko’s contrasting colourblocking pop art, the shoes are available in five shades, each created to appeal to different personalities. These include: The Romantic One in pink (pictured), The Playful One in nude, The Mysterious One in black, The Modernist One in white or The Wild One in orange. The style features a sculpted heel with cut-out details, a pointed closed toe and contrasting soles. The patent leather shoes stand tall with a four-inch heel and cost Dh3,000. The Scipios capsule collection, as well as Manolo Blahnik’s spring/summer 2017 line, will be available on Farfetch.com from March 7.
