Be prepared to stop traffic, turns heads, and wear them every day for the rest of the summer and with socks in the fall.

square-1498738182-photo-1-mb-shoe-for-pragueedit
Manolo Blahnik loves an extravagant shoe. Just ask Rihanna, whose collaboration for the brand has included $4,000 denim boot-pants and $2,300 jewel-encrusted gladiator sandals. Now, the designer has come out with his most outrageous offering yet: one-of-a-kind fuschia boots valued at a casual $5,700. They were created in partnership with crystal supplier Preciosa and debuted at its flagship store in Prague, Czech Republic earlier this week. The unique pair of stiletto boots feature pom poms and more than 100 Preciosa crystal chandelier trimmings. They were made in honor of Blahnik's traveling exhibition coming to Prague's Museum Kampa, The Art of Shoes, and will remain on display in-store until November. In addition, Blahnik created 20 limited edition Bohemian-inspired pairs of his classic Hangisi jeweled buckle pump all made with...

How To Get Laid Wearing Birkenstocks

landscape-1498600437-gettyimages-455609810

Mel Ottenberg is a Certified Big Deal™ in Fashion Land, having styled Bjork and Chloe Sevigny before becoming Rihanna's all-day-every-day outfit planner. So why is he now working with Birkenstock, the brand beloved by hot camp counselors who just dropped out of Oberlin?
"Not just Oberlin—I went to Rhode Island School of Design, and I wore them too!" he laughed. "Also, when I was a teenager, I interned for Marc Jacobs, and I would wear white Birkenstocks to the office. The city was so hot in summer; we all wore them with basically everything."

Fast forward to now, when "utility shoes"—Crocs at Christopher Kane, Tevas at Versace—have taken over runways, while Rihanna herself makes best-selling slides for Puma. But though...

Your First Look At Rihanna’s “So Stoned” Shoe Collection For Manolo Blahnik

hbz-rihanna-wild-thoughts-shoes-1498064507

Rihanna is many things—style icon, bona fide Bad Gal, philanthropist and singer of your new summer anthem—but one of her greatest talents may just be her ability to design a killer pair of shoes.
Following her latest bout of sold-out Puma shoes this spring, Bad Gal Riri is debuting another new footwear collaboration, this time with Manolo Blahnik. Aptly called "So Stoned," the collection marks the singer's third and final collab with the shoe brand (who can forgot those thigh-high denim boots?).
The four-piece collection consists of clear PVC sandals embellished with colorful Swarovski crystals (cue the "so stoned" pun). Rihanna sneakily debuted the first pair, dubbed the "Poison Ivy" gladiators, last week in the fashion-filled "Wild Thoughts" music video.

sanayi3136

Sanayi 313 isn’t just a shoe label. It’s a concept boutique founded by brothers Enis and Amir Karavil. Located in an industrial district of Istanbul, Sanayi 313 offers home furnishings, art, clothing, a marketplace and restaurant. Serena Uziyel, a close friend and Parsons School of Design graduate, joined the duo to design a collection of Ottoman-inspired babouche slippers and a cult following was ignited. The embellishments, which include pom poms, tassels and metallic embroidery, are fun but not frivolous – bold but not garish. Love. No, obsessed.

rain-shoes

Because no-one likes people who wear wellies in the city…

The same thing happens every year: it gets to June, we have a few blazingly hot days and we pack away anything that’s not swimwear, straw bags or sandals.

Then, England remembers it's England, the skies open, we all get drenched walking to the tube and spend the day sitting bare foot at the desk with our shoes on the radiator, vowing not to step outside without a closed toe for the rest of the year.

Though it’s tempting to risk it on a semi-grey morning, nothing will ruin your new Bimba Y Lola rope sandals like a flash flood. So, instead, here’s what you should wear when your weather app says: rain…
