Since the 1970s, Manolo Blahnik is known as a legend and as a staple in high fashion. The man, Blahnik himself, designs each shoe along with personally carving the wooden guide for every design. Iconic Vogue editor Diana Vreeland also had a hand in pushing Blahnik to make shoes, seeing his extraordinary talent which he possessed even as a child. In the documentary Manolo: The Boy Who Made Shoes for Lizards, you’ll see his dedication to each shoe he produces. And how he’ll be a superstar in his own right, even being able to turn down Rihanna for a redux collection.
As a brand, Blahniks are name-checked by everyone who knows good shoes. You could say they were Carrie Bradshaw’s one true love in Sex and the City. Royals Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle are faithful Blahnik customers as well as a number of celebrities. Not to mention successful women in various fields.
Blahniks are both for style and for work. They are the party favorite with the Hangisi. The BB pumps are the sensible choice like your favorite pair of jeans. There is a pair of Manolos for every kind of woman there is.
