“It’s not a print, it’s an heirloom,” says designer Madeline Weinrib of her handcrafted ikat known as the Daphne, one of a smattering of signature textiles to be included in a new collaboration with Manolo Blahnik. Working in partnership with artisans in Uzbekistan, Weinrib—granddaughter of ABC Carpet & Home founder Max Weinrib—honors traditional techniques that have existed in the region for centuries while bringing a modern touch to the inky motifs. “I love seeing the mistakes in the fabric; it adds to the poetry of it,” says Weinrib, pointing out that ikat is highly prized in certain Eastern cultures, and passed down from generation to generation. “There’s a lot of soul in the yarn.” Those designs appear on Blahnik’s classic four-inch pumps, loafers, and the insole of flat summer sandals in the collection. “I think Manolo and I share the same values when it comes to making things with a lasting quality,” she says. “I recently pulled out a pair of his shoes from my closet that I hadn’t worn in years—and they felt like new.”
