Whether you’ve always been a die-hard Manolo fan, or had your eyes opened to the designer when those shoes appeared on Sex and the City, this news is going to brighten your day.
The famous footwear designer has turned his oh-so-well-tuned eye to a new type of accessory, and it has got us all rather excited.
This month sees the launch of Manolo Blahnik’s first ever collection of bags, specifically clutches, for the most special occasions in your diaries. The bags all feature a magnified buckle which already exists on his most famous shoes.
The designer told
I love ornaments in my shoes so why not add these to the bags too? These bags are an extension of some of the shoe styles I really like as I wanted to keep the connection between the shoes and bags.
There are six different styles in the collection, each coming in a variety of different colours from champagne to silver, hot pink and berry red.
Manolo says: “Every woman needs a jewel. Something very special and beautiful. There is nothing more stunning than a feminine hand holding a gem-like object.”
