Manolo Blahnik met Rosa Tous at a luncheon in Madrid last summer. He commented on her elegance and the charming teddy bear pendant she was wearing. She said she would love for him to design a piece for TOUS. The two put their heads together and Manolo said, "Let's do my famous mary jane shoe 'Campari,' as a charm!" Rosa said, "I love it! Let's do it dangling from a gold chain with a diamond button!" And so began Manolo Blahnik for TOUS.

Manolo Blahnik comments, "I love TOUS because I feel we have many things in common. We are family-runned businesses, we share Spanish roots and we are both keen on surprising and innovating."

Rosa Tous agrees, "I am delighted with the agreement. Manolo Blahnik shoes are beautiful and an amazing mix between trends and classicism."
