Manolo Blahnik has it in the bag…
The 72-year-old Spanish fashion designer, the founder of the self-named, high-end shoe brand, will be debuting a capsule collection of evening bags inspired by his most iconic shoe styles.
Says Blahnik of his latest creations: “Every woman needs a jewel. Something very special and beautiful. There is nothing more stunning than a feminine hand holding a gem-like object.”
In Sex and the City, Blahniks shoe designs are a particular favorite of the show’s star character Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) and as a result are mentioned frequently.
He received a Lifetime Achievement Award from Footwear News in 2011.
