Manolo Blahnik loves an extravagant shoe. Just ask Rihanna, whose collaboration for the brand has included Dhs14,600 denim boot-pants and Dhs8,500 jewel-encrusted gladiator sandals. Now, the designer has come out with his most outrageous offering yet: one-of-a-kind fuschia boots valued at a casual Dhs20,000. They were created in partnership with crystal supplier Preciosa and debuted at its flagship store in Prague, Czech Republic earlier this week.
The unique pair of stiletto boots feature pom poms and more than 100 Preciosa crystal chandelier trimmings. They were made in honor of Blahnik's traveling exhibition coming to Prague's Museum Kampa, The Art of Shoes, and will remain on display in-store until November.
In addition, Blahnik created 20 limited edition Bohemian-inspired pairs of his classic Hangisi jeweled buckle pump all made with Czech lace and Preciosa crystals–an homage to his own Czech roots.
