In 1973, Spanish designer Manolo Blahnik established his namesake footwear label. Accompanied by an impressive resume of work at fashion houses such as Perry Ellis, Calvin Klein, and John Galliano, Blahnik’s exquisite talents show through in his own brand as well, which has since become an international symbol of graceful feminine style and status. Manolo Blahnik footwear is anything but plain—mules and stilettos... often made from delicate fabrics such as satin and brocade... mixed with elements such as ribbons, beads, or Swarovski crystals... it is like jewellery for the feet. After only one time wear, the magnificent beauty will have you addicted, wanting to collect more… an attitude which gained even further popularity through American TV show Sex And The City’s frequent references to the brand. Manolo Blahnik has collaborated with brands such Marimekko, Opening Ceremony, and German company, Falke.
