What do Meghan Markle, Sarah Jessica Parker, Michelle Obama, Anna Wintour, Beyonce, and Rihanna have in common?

I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s stalked their Instagrams and coveted their amazing shoes, but fear not! With the new opening of legendary shoe brand Manolo Blahnik’s first standalone store in Singapore at Marina Bay Sands, you can finally cure your shoe envy and be one step closer to becoming your inner fashion goddess! (If anyone is listening, I vote Queen Bey)
Founded by Spanish designer Manolo Blahnik, iconic shoes from this eponymous label have been featured in shows that shaped our generation and graced the feet of some of the most famous people on the planet! From Sarah Jessica Parker to Michelle Obama, Anna Wintour to Rihanna, Beyonce to the new Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle, Blahnik has won loyal devotees across the globe. Who could forget Carrie Bradshaw’s uncontrollable obsession with the label in Sex and the City, and the Hangisi Satin Pumps in Cobalt Blue that she received in place of an engagement ring? Who doesn’t feel intense shoe envy whenever the new Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, steps out in her BB Pumps in Beige Suede?
Pop culture references aside, another reason for their pervasive popularity lies in their quality. Manolo Blahniks are synonymous with the highest quality, and for good reason! Blahnik prides himself as a craftsman, and the exquisitely shaped lasts and heels he creates for his shoes are still perfected with his very own hands.
Already had your fill of classic shoes? Blahnik is also known for his stunningly unique seasonal collections, which are developed from the sketches he personally designs to this day. His strikingly unique Summer 2018 collection was inspired by visions of fun French Riviera parties, distant Jaipur and colourful Kandinsky paintings. Get them at the MBS store right now, just in time to be the envy of all at your summer events!
Manolo Blahnik is located at Galleria Level, B1-80A, The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands.
