Manolo Blahnik aims to take over the accessories industry. He's already one of the leading footwear designers and now he's venturing into jewelry. He has designed to team up with TOUS to create a jewelry range featuring his Mary Jane Campari shoe as a charm.
Talking about his decision to collaborate with the brand he explained: "I love TOUS because I feel we have many things in common. We are family-runned businesses, we share Spanish roots and we are both keen on surprising and innovating."
The price hasn't been revealed bu the collection will be available in TOUS stores and Manolo Blahnik boutiques from March.
I used to think, "Yeah, right" when celebrities complained that not even they looked like their pictures in magazines, but exposed Photoshop fixes over the past few years (Faith Hill on the Redbook cover, Jessica Alba in the Campari ad) have convinced me otherwise.
Complex magazine posted a pre-altered image of Kim Kardashian on its website (oops!), and Animal NY caught it before staffers could make the swap. New skin tone, new hairline, smaller waist, different bust...maybe it would be easier if magazines would hire just one model and then slap a different celeb's face on her for each spread.
