The 28-year-old singer songwriter unveiled her debut shoe line with the fashion designer in May this year, and the pair have joined forces once again on their latest winter footwear range called Savage, which will feature three boots. According to WWD.com the forthcoming designs have been inspired by the longstanding and durable Timberland shoes, as well as her love for suede and shearling materials.
The capsule will see the Timberland style boot re-designed to include a stiletto heel and fur trim called the Fallon, a thigh-high boot with a sheepskin lining made from black pony skin and a floral laser-cut detail titled the Dominique, and the Alexis, which is a knee-high lace up boot with fur trim.
The creations come in a muted and earthy colour palette, as the Alexis will be available in ivory or cinnamon shade, whilst the fur detailing on the Fallon comes in either ivory or coffee. Rihanna x Manolo Blahnik’s Savage collection will be available to buy in select Manolo Blahnik stores, and online from Wednesday (16.11.16).
Meanwhile, the Barbadian beauty – who is the creative director at PUMA – has launched a number of lines under the sportswear giant’s label including her debut footwear line the Fenty x PUMA Creepers.
And Rihanna’s signature platform trainer has led to her to be crowned the Shoe of the Year award at the Footwear News Achievement Award.
The ‘Work’ hitmaker – who has also designed for Stance hosiery – previously took to social media to share the news. Alongside a picture, which shows the imprint of the highly-coveted design in sand, on her Instagram account, she wrote: “God be the Glory!!!
What a blessing to be honored with this prestigious award, and to be the first woman receiving ‘SHOE OF THE YEAR’ at #FNAA !!
