5 reasons why Manolo Blahnik is having a fantastic fall:
1. Rihanna can’t get enough of his shoes, she’s worn the Chaos sandal & BB Strap pump several times.
2. A new Manolo Blahnik boutique just opened up in Harrods. A private opening celebration was held during London Fashion Week. Guests included Olivia Palermo who wore my favorite design this season, the Laura sandal.
3. The BB pump is having another moment and was worn by Victoria Beckham at the Olympia Closing Ceremony.
4. Blahnik collaborated with a total of 15 designers during the New York Fashion Week, Spring 2013.
5. Emma Watson wore the Raviota pump in the October 2012 issue of Glamour Magazine.
Here’s a look at some of the Fall 2012 collection (names included!). My favorite three styles are BB strap, Laura and Gualeguay. By the way, Manolo Blahnik is now on Twitter and Facebook!
