British footwear brand Manolo Blahnik has announced a partnership with aftercare specialist The Restory, who will offer consumers repair services.
The global partnership, Mend My Manolos, will enable customers worldwide through the Manolo Blahnik website and three U.K. boutiques to receive tailored repairs by masterful artisans, returning the footwear back to their best condition.
The partnership also marks significant change for The Restory as they continue to expand and scale, aiming to reinvent aftercare and circulatory for luxury fashion.
The service offers standard repairs such as re – soling and re-healing, as well as more thorough restoration and dyeing. Customers will be able to book a collection and specify the services required for each item they will be sending.
If customers are unsure of the level of work needed, The Restory team can suggest which services they find are needed. Once items are received by The Restory atelier, consumers will receive a quote via email.
In a statement, Vanessa Jacobs, Founder and CEO of The Restory, said: ‘We started The Restory to make aftercare fun and stylish and as much as a part of the fashion experience as buying to begin with. We have spent four years cracking the complexity of aftercare, partnering with some of the U.K.’s leading luxury retailers to help customers fall in love again and again with their investment pieces.
‘Few brand epitomise fun, style and investment – in – self better than our first brand partner Manolo Blahnik and we are excited to be leveraging our tech, data and craftmanship to power aftercare for such an iconic brand, championing a sustainable approach to luxury and helping the industry advance towards a greener future’.
