Manolo Blahnik's name is synonymous with beautifully crafted shoes that radiate originality, style, and exuberance. For four decades his unique vision has held the fashion world spellbound, and his creations have become perpetual objects of desire. His design process always begins with colorful sketches as finely executed as the shoes themselves, and which have become equally sought-after by his fans. Here, more than 130 of Blahnik's witty, seductive drawings are collected into one inspiring volume. Manolo's New Shoes is organized thematically to express his current inspirations and passions--Africa, architecture, botany, Russia, and urban life. An introduction by Manolo Blahnik himself is accompanied by contributions from some of the most prominent names in fashion: Suzy Menkes, head fashion reporter and editor for the International Herald Tribune ; Grace Coddington, creative director at Vogue ; three-time Oscar-award winning costume designer Milena Canonero; Amy Fine Collins, a special correspondent to Vanity Fair ; and Carlos Garc a Calvo, who writes for El Mundo. A book for everyone who has admired Blahnik's work, whether from afar through a store's plate-glass window or up-close in her own closet, Manolo's New Shoes provides a fascinating glimpse into the creative mind of today's best-known shoe designer. As Andr Leon Talley, the editor-at-large at Vogue, has said about the designer, "He captures the most powerful of emotions: desire.
