I recently visited the Bata Shoe Museum to see the Manalo Blahnik Exhibit and I was not disappointed. I saw the work of a true artist and I understand why these shoes are sought after with such fervor. The craftsmanship that goes into every design is why the price tag is so high.
Fun Fact – Manolo Blahnik designed the footwear for the movie Marie Antionette by Sofia Coppola.
He was influenced by his Spanish and Czech roots. Check out the Pom Poms on these shoes which are a reminder of National Czech folk costumes.
My favourite piece was this boot. Totally my style!
Definitely worth checking out! The show is on until early January 2019.
One thought on “Shoe Artist”
I have been to the shoe museum a couple of times. Was a really great visit. I love shoes and to see this history. Great museum.
