Even Madonna once pronounced: “His shoes are as good as sex – and they last longer.”
These screen-worthy stilettos and slingbacks are bringing sexy back this season, thanks to Manolo Blahnik’s new Spring 2023 Women’s Collection. Featuring spirit-lifting lush florals, the brand’s latest range of stunning shoes is designed to help you spring forward with every step while boosting your street cred at the same time.
Flower power: What’s blooming this season
Drawing inspiration from the master designer’s love of the natural world, the designs in the new Spring 2023 Women’s Collection reflect the verdant tropical flowers from Manolo Blahnik’s native Canary Islands, where he was born and raised by a Spanish mother and a Czech father.
With Blahnik’s spring creations adorning your feet, it’ll feel as if your footwear has become one with nature itself. Featuring intricate embellishments that simulate the curl of a fern or the extravagance of a wild garden, each shoe evokes the sense of nature at its joyful best while taking your aura of glamour and elegance to the next level.
Modern extravagance, timeless elegance
Unearthing the very first shoes he designed for the 1971 runway of Ossie Clark, a prominent British fashion designer, Blahnik decided to breathe new life into his signature climbing ivy sandal as well as the timeless strappy mule.
Infusing splashes of colour against a backdrop of greenery, these classic shoe styles are reimagined in exuberant hues reminiscent of the colour-pop architecture of the Canary Islands.
To bring the vibrant shades of spring to life, Blahnik used the bold flourish of brushstrokes with the help of a striking colour palette. Cleverly juxtaposing textures and organic shapes in each silhouette, the eye-catching designs in the Spring 2023 Women’s Collection allow you to dress up your feet in the most dazzling and spectacular fashion.
Wearable art on the go
Since creating his brand in 1970, Blahnik is the only shoe designer of his stature to design alone, requiring no other creative input from others.
Using sable brushes and watercolour ink, each creation begins as a freehand sketch. With his stylistic use of lines, light and colour, Blahnik’s sketches are of impressionistic quality, making them works of art in their own rights.
When it comes to production, the designer not only designs the shoe, but also carves each heel himself. Paying attention right down to the minutest detail, he even whittles the wooden lasts and cuts out patterns by hand to meet his exact standards of excellence.
With such care and consideration being put into their creation, it’s no wonder Blahnik’s shoes are not only always on-trend and synonymous with seasonal style, but also exquisitely crafted to stand the test of time.
