Manolo: The Art of Shoes
'The extraordinary beauty of the book comes with reading it and feeling as if you were one on one with a friend who was laying bare his soul, pun intended; he reveals his predilections, his influences, his likes, his personal life, his mentors, his fascinations, his beliefs, and just about any part of his life—all play into the creation of his product' - New York Journal of Books
An accompaniment to a touring exhibition at the Hermitage, Bata Shoe Museum and Museo Nacional des Artes Decorativas, The Art of Shoes playfully alphabetises Manolo Blahnik's ideas and inspirations through a series of sketches, photographs and rare anecdotes.
The book offers the reader a rare opportunity to learn the vision behind the shoes as told by a fashion legend and is introduced by an illustrated essay, which describes the designer’s forty-five-year career in the fashion industry.
