Diamond-set shoe charm set for release in March
Spanish jewellery brand Tous is teaming up with Manolo Blahnik to transform the designer’s Campari shoe into jewellery.
Manolo Blahnik for Tous will launch in March in 300 Tous boutiques worldwide, beginning in Mexico and followed by the Rockefeller Center in New York City.
The idea for the collaboration came to Blahnik last summer when he met jewellery designer Rosa Tous in Madrid. Tous told Blahnik she’d love to design a piece for him and after much brainstorming, Blahnik suggested that Tous create his classic heeled Campari shoe as a charm. Tous added that she’d have the charm hang from a gold chain with a diamond button.
“I am delighted with the agreement. Manolo Blahnik shoes are beautiful and an amazing mix between trends and classicism,” Tous said.
The Campari mary janes have been featured on numerous films and TV shows—perhaps most famously on Sex and the City, where Manolo-loving lead character Carrie Bradshaw dubbed them an “urban shoe myth", upon finding them in the Vogue fashion cupboard.
