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.
HAPPY NEW YEAR FASHIONISTAS!
I welcome 2017 with colours. specifically the PANTONE Colour of 2017 – Greenery.
Greenery represents nature and revitalization. Something we could all use after 2016. At the Spring 2017 shows, Louis Vuitton captured the essence of Greenery with sharp pantsuits that reminded me of tart green apples.
The Pantone Fashion colour of 2017 is Niagara. Flowing water and deep lakes, Niagara is also a revitalizing colour. Louise Vuitton also hit it with this lovely flowy dress. I want this so bad! This pleated shirt from Celine is a reminder of cascading water. Probably something you can pick up at H&M or Zara at a reasonable price point. Denim can also be an interpretation of Niagara and Altuzarra’s embroidered denim skirt is another item on my Spring “must-haves” list.
I created a cropped, bat wing top out of this beautiful origami paper from Muji.I love how fresh this shade of green looks. It gives the promise of a great year for 2017. Hope you enjoyed this colour report and let me know what your colour is for 2017. Cheers!
Thanks for all the LIKES, FOLLOWS AND COMMENTS. Have a Happy New Year Everyone!
