Manolo Blahnik Spring/Summer 2014

“Shoes,” says Manolo Blahnik, “help transform a woman.”

Born in the Canary Islands, Blahnik began making shoes in London in 1971, and this year, for the first time in his illustrious career, he’s elected to hold a spot on the official London Fashion Week calendar. Blahnik hosted an intimate presentation at the Covent Garden Hotel right in the heart of the theater district, which was fitting, as the designer made his LFW debut via his first fashion film, directed by Michael Roberts and starring actor Rupert Everett and socialite Lucy Birley.

Vivid colors and floral and African motifs defined the look for spring ’14.
