Manolo Blahnik to collaborate with Kurt Geiger

Manolo Blahnik is set to collaborate with Kurt Geiger. He is set to launch the collection the word-renowned store Harrods in Knightsbridge. Both Manolo Blahnik and Kurt Geiger shoes aren’t exactly cheap yet both these brands tend to ooze elegance. Blahnik currently sells his shoes from one sole destination in the UK – his store in Chelsea, London. Manolo Blahnik shoes are also available in the US from Saks Fifth Avenue, Barney’s and Neiman Marcus. Kurt Geiger shoes are more available on the high street available in such stores as House of Fraser.

“I am very excited that my shoes will reach an even broader audience through Kurt Geiger in Liberty and Harrods,” said Blahnik. The fact that Blahnik wants to sell his shoes more widely than his sole store implies that he wants more UK women to wear his shoes. In the US a lot of celebrities are seen wearing them so obviously UK women see them wearing them and they obviously want to own a pair of these designer shoes. In Harrods the prices are often a bit more expensive so it makes a lot of sense that the collaboration range is sold in the most famous store in London

I can’t wait to see the collaborative collection between these two designers. Manolo Blahnik’s classic shoes mixed with Kurt Geiger’s modern shoes should make for a very interesting collection. I have a feeling you might need to let your credit card cool down after buying a pair of these shoes though…
