Mad for Manolo

Perhaps it's because I'm daydreaming about my next night out, perhaps it's because I'm pre-ordering other books from Amazon.....or perhaps, I think these shoes are simply a delight and a magnificent showcase of artistic craftsmanship and beauty....whatever my reason, I can't wait for the release of Manolo's New Shoes in October. 

The book serves as a follow up companion to Manolo Blahnik Drawings and showcases watercolor drawings of new shoe designs.  Andre Leon Talley says it best when speaking about the show designer..." He captures the most powerful of emotions: desire."

I'm headed to London in a few weeks and I think the temporary showcase of Blahnik designs for the Liberty department store is the perfect way to satisfy my daydreams until the book arrives!

Fortunately, there are a few souvenirs from the exhibition that will be the perfect jump start to my Christmas shopping!
