Manolo Blahnik premiered his AW14 collection and a series of four short films at New York Fashion Week...
Shoes and films are famously Manolo Blahnik’s two great loves, which is why the legendary designer chose to debut his AW14 collection at the same time as premiering four short movies made by his friend Michael Roberts. Showcased on the walls of the Pace Gallery and ranging on a variety of subjects, from his childhood and design inspirations to a Victorian ghost story, the black and whites were the perfect juxtaposition to the colourful shoes on display, from pom pom-bedecked courts and brocade and jewelled slippers to the no-nonsense lace-up crocodile brogues used in Victoria Beckham’s fashion show, staged just an hour earlier.
Who we saw: Fashion icon and long-time Manolo pal, Grace Coddington.
What they wore: A streamlined black coat.
In three words: Shoe Show Extraordinaire.
