Today marks the launch of Manolo Blahnik’s debut trunk show on Moda Operandi. It runs through March 30, so that should give the label’s many fans ample time to secure their fall ’17 shoe-drobe.
Expect new season updates on those signature Hangisi, Arleti and Bipunta models in new fabrications, plus the debut of several new styles, too. In total, there are 32 styles on preorder, with sizes ranging from 34 to 42.
“We aim to dress our clients from head to toe, literally,” says Deborah Nicodemus, Moda Operandi CEO. “Mr. Blahnik understands design, values craftsmanship and infuses newness each season while maintaining the classic elements women love.”
The collaboration with Moda Operandi follows on from the label’s touring exhibition, “The Art of Shoes,” currently in Milan. As Blahnik CEO Kristina Blahnik told Footwear News in December, “2017 is about really telling the story of Manolo and the heritage and the whole legacy that he has built.”
“The consumer is even more immediate,” she continued, “so it’s key to cater for their immediate needs in the right place at the right time.”
