MANOLO BLAHNIK NEW ARRIVALS
FEMININITY, SENSUALITY, ECCENTRICITY
Manolo Blahnik’s boundless creativity, unique sense of beauty and sharp eye are legendary. Inspired by the many element that surround him, be it a detail, an enticing shape, a color, a stylish muse, a piece of art or a striking architecture, his exuberant and colorful shoes are the ultimate objects of desire. Just ask Carrie Bradshaw and Blahnik’s gaggle of glitterati fans.
For fall, the maestro’s wide-spanning inspiration spans from Sicilian Baroque to Le Corbusier, from iconic model Jean Shrimpton captured during the Sixties by celebrated photographer and longtime friend David Bailey to the legendary Diana Vreeland, Blahnik’s early mentor and fashion expert, renowned for her bold jewelry choices.
Blahnik also mined his own personal archives (and why wouldn’t he, after all his career spans 45 years) and hints at one of his favorite films, Doctor Zhivago.
In celebration of Shrimpton, Blahnik created effortlessly chic ballerina flats, a kitten-heeled Mary Jane pump in patent leather and the black and white knee-high Wakia boots with block heel while the jewel-toned Vree T-strap with contrasting tongue homages Vreeland.
Similarly, the ornate Sicilian Baroque architecture that decorates the island’s stunning churches informed the silhouettes of his court pumps and flats in plush silk satin with a flash of gold.
Whispered or dazzling, flat or sky-high, each shoe is a true labor of love, a luxurious and seductive treat that will bring out the Princess that is in you. Discover the new arrivals in our boutique.
