Manolo Blahnik’s First Shoe Collection for Men

Manolo Blahnik is a Spanish fashion designer and founder of the self-named, high-end shoe brand. He is in the footwear business Since the ‘70s, he worked on designing shoes. At first, he was designing men’s footwear, but he immediately found that men’s shoes design relatively limiting his imagination and lacking the element of fashion, so he specialised in women’s designs that are known for being timeless classics.

Also, Blanhik has always created shoes for himself, so no wonder why was just a matter of time when he will launch his collection for men. His designs that contain around 40 styles and colorways ranges from formal lace-up shoes through to sandals. He showcased his newest collection of men’s shoes for the first time among artifacts at Sir John Soane’s Museum in London.

Blahnik co-ordinated the colours of the shoes with the different rooms of the Museum – placing a pair of gold and blue shoes next to a large painting of Venice with lots of blue hues and a large gold frame. When asked why he’d chosen that location, the Spanish designer replied that he had been struck by the beauty of the building. Blahnik was convinced to create a fully-men’s collections after being persuaded by people in the fashion industry after a perceived boom in menswear. His theory for this boom is that men are putting more effort in to their appearance.
