Designed in 1994, the Campari shoe from Manolo Blahnik—made
famous by Sex and the City character Carrie Bradshaw—is now available in
jewelry form, thanks to a new partnership between the shoemaker and the jeweler TOUS.
The Manolo Blahnik for TOUS Campari shoe pendant necklace is
available in sterling silver, vermeil, and 18k gold, with suggested retail
prices starting at just $155. Moving forward, Manolo Blahnik boutiques and will
also carry the piece.
TOUS announced the collaboration in January, but is just now
releasing photos of the jewelry, which went on sale this month in 300 TOUS
boutiques worldwide, including in Mexico and the United States.
There are three different sizes of sterling shoe pendants, priced at $155, $249, and $279.
There are three different sizes of vermeil (18k gold over sterling)
shoe pendants, priced $279, $409, and $499. An 18k gold shoe pendant with a diamond accent on the strap

Editor’s Note: New Yorkers and theatre goers may be
interested to know that the small $155 silver necklace is being
sold at Priscilla Queen of the Desert the
Musical at the Palace Theater on Broadway. A full 100 percent of the proceeds
benefits Bette Midler’s New York Restoration Project, a nonprofit organization
dedicated to reclaiming and restoring New York City parks, community gardens,
and open space. Midler is one of the show’s producers, and Manolo is one
of the show’s opening-night sponsors. Yet another fun tie-in: Manolo unveiled
an official stiletto—a silver, patent-leather Priscilla Mary Jane—for the
production; a portion of sale proceeds also benefit Midler’s charity.
