We’ve spent plenty of time obsessing over Rihanna‘s fashion in DJ Khaled‘s music video for “Wild Thoughts.” However, in spite of our diligent rewatching of, note-taking during, and thinkpiece-penning about the Bad Gal’s appearance in the three-and-a-half-minute clip, we apparently missed a huge announcement from the performer, designer, and soon-to-be beauty mogul: Vogue reports that the crystal-embellished footwear Rihanna donned in the video actually belonged to her latest, yet-to-be-released capsule for Manolo Blahnik.
Though she’s designed plenty of incredibly popular shoes for her Fenty label with Puma, Rihanna announced she’d be collaborating with the legendary luxury shoe brand on a trio of themed collections. The first one drew from her love of denim (and her own tattoos); the second was dubbed “Savage,” and included a subtle homage to J.Lo; the third and final series made its surprise debut in “Wild Thoughts.”
Vogue has learned the collection is called “So Stoned,” because of the gem-coated lucite decorating the heels (and maybe, because of Rihanna’s love for a certain smokable plant). It’s composed of four styles — two types of mules, a pair of strappy sandals, and stiletto-heeled gladiators — which will be priced between $1,265 and $2,325. If you’re trying to cop Rihanna’s exact “Wild Thoughts” look, you won’t have much time to save up: The capsule hits Manolo Blahnik shelves on July 6.
