Manolo Blahnik had been quoted to say that he has “no interest in polluting the brand by producing mass-market type product”. Well, well, apparently he has changed his mind. Because J. Crew just very recently announced that the high street brand is collaborating with Manolo Blahnik, launching a line called (naturally), “Manolo Blahnik for J. Crew”
No word on launching date or price, but Huffington Post reports that it may not be much cheaper from the usual price tag of Manolos. We thought it kind of defeats the purpose, but until we hear more details, I will zip it for now, and let pictures do the talking
Will you be interested in getting your hands on these? Would you be willing to cough up the dough if they are sold for just a little below of Manolo Blahnik shoes?
