When it comes to shoe designers, Manolo Blahnik is in a league of his own. With more than 30 years of experience and an abounding imagination, Mr Blahnik never fails to amaze with his awe-inspiring creations. For Summer 2013, we are treated to a flare of bright buoyant hues in turquoise and tangerine, cobalt blue and emerald, intense red, flashy neon yellow and fuchsia. There are also a few neutral shaded shoes mingled in for the classic palates.
Whether your style is feminine, boyish, outlandish or simply elegant, there is a Manolo pair in store for you. This season, sculptural heels take centre stage with a range of head-spinning high heels that will require a lesson or two to walk in. Cue Carrie Bradshaw. Colour blocked suedes are met with frilled frontages and glossy metallics take on vibrant tones. PVC panels add a modernistic effect, and architectural ankle cuff sandals look forward to the future.
Lace-up leather boots and monochrome brogues will fit a more masculine sense of style and for the girly girls, there are daisy-decked kitten heels and jeweled satin sandals. Pick a pointy-toe black court shoe if asymmetry and fluoro tints are not your thing. Patent cut-out pairs and printed tweeds lend to the innovation of this striking collection.
All Hail High Heels and Pretty Pumps....this is a look at Manolo Blahnik's Summer 2013 range.
If we had ideal lives where power-walking and economizing was not required - which of these Manolo Blahnik heels would you love to try on?
