Manolo Blahnik may be better known for slinky stilettos and sandals, but for spring the luxury footwear designer teamed up with German sock manufacturer Falke to design a limited collection of unisex socks.
The collection consists of three unisex styles: a ribbed heather gray sock adorned with pink pompoms; a pale pink and fuchsia polka dot sock inspired by a dress worn by Blahnik’s mother; and a sporty ivory sock with Blahnik’s favorite quote ‘Keep Going’ embroidered in pink.
A fan of fancy socks himself, Blahnik said, “I am very excited about this collaboration. Socks connect your feet with the clothes you are wearing and can make a punctuating statement.” He added, “Playing with patterns and textures is a lot of fun. And I love when women wear socks with high heels!”
The collection is sold exclusively on Because magazine’s new e-commerce venture for about $37 and is the first product to be sold on the site.
