My enthusiasm about it is mild, really. I mean, on one hand it's not entirely surprising since he's done collaborations with lines like Zac Posen and Carolina Herrera, but now Manolo Blahnik is working with retail brand J.Crew to create a line for J.Crew's Fall 2012 collection, and it kind of makes me feel...
There's something special about being able to buy a pair of designer shoes, with the understanding that not every other girl will style the same shoe. Could be the price tag, could be the exclusivity that comes with a designer name brand. That being said, The Manolo Blahnik for J.Crew line will range in price from $595 to $645, so chances are that not every girl will go out and splurge on the stylish single-sole pointy-toe pupms, but still.
