Manolo Blahnik, 40 years of Glamour


To celebrate the upcoming of the first shop-in-shop of the renowned British shoe brand on 5th floor of the department store Printemps in Paris, Mr. Manolo Blahnik made a unique exhibition during the Parisian fashion week.   The exhibition, designed as a stroll through the brand’s history, is gathering together the brand’s most historic models as well as Mr. Blahnik’s personal favourites on 2nd floor of Printemps de la mode. A dozen themes are presented including pain, nature, modernism, Russia and so on. To mark this occasion, Manolo Blahnik is re-releasing, exclusively for Printemps Haussmann, one of its most  conic models: the “Ossie”, the tread is signed “Manolo Blahnik for Printemps”. First known as the Ivy, this model was designed in 1971 famed English designer Ossie Clark’s fashion show. A melange of bright green and red, this shoe is poetry in motion; its long suede straps topped with luscious red berries and its 10-centimetre heels accentuating the silhouette.
