It’s almost too much for our fragile hearts to bear.
Fashion month has been a whirlwind in it’s own right but seriously, Rihanna and Manolos at the same damn time?
Honestly, who was prepared for this colossal denim collaboration featuring these nasty waist high “9-5” denim boots that have nothing to do with any kind of work day we’re accustomed to? And we do mean nasty in the best way possible.
Rihanna revealed details behind the 6-piece collaboration in her latest spread for British Vogue and touched on some thoughts that we’ve got to admit we have as well.
“The day I see a woman in the street wearing my shoes… I am sorry for that woman because I’m going to literally run after her, shouting, ‘Stop! Selfie! Who are you? Where did you get them?’ I’m going to have a moment!”
Yea, Rih. We’d probably run after her too simply to ask how tf she managed to figure out an effective and practical way to rock these.
Outside of masterfully laid out editorials, the biannual parade that is fashion week and I don’t know…our weddings, what event is grand enough to compensate boots that go above and beyond and end up at your waist?
What type of night do you have when you wear these? According to Bad Gal Rih Rih, things can get kind of wild.
“Guuurrrl! Those boots are dangerous! If you’re trying to get back home to your bed, don’t wear them boots! You will get kidnapped in those boots, those boots are trouble,” she told BV.
Ahem, well uh. There we have it. Stay away from these unless you want a story to tell when it’s all said and done. If you’re not up for the task and just want a standard slay, there are other options that feature a healthy dose of denim and inspiration from Rihanna’s tattoos.
The full collection will hit Manolo Blahnik stores May 5 and range from $895-$3995. And if that’s not in the budget we’re SURE several fast fashion companies are on it as we speak. We can’t guarantee the same effect though. A recreation of those “9-5” boots could turn into an entirely different story for someone else to tell at the wearer’s expense.
Either way we can’t wait to see what else they’ve cooked up. We’re sure it’ll be good…or bad. Real bad.
