Blahnik’s collection/3

Spectacle: the most eccentrical group features fantastical creations wich are very much Manolo’s signature. Caviara is a striking open-toe ankle boot in lavander and white jacquard silk with cut out details. Bimbolla is a squared-heeled bottine, with a row of buttons on the side. All would be in a imaginary world of the Big Top.







Alexander Calder: The image of Angelica Huston wearing a gold, serpentine necklace by Calder gave birth to shoes such as Entipada and Gori, a curved sandal made entirely of one piece of leather by a new technique. Manolo went further and drew from the abstract form of calder’s mobile- Gestiona– and sculptures, such as Petasap, with his three interlinking fluid lines.
