Since I have been kind of out of commission, due to having my baby early. (You can read that story here.) I was sitting doing my mom thing and taking care of my newborn when I put on Netflix. I found the most interesting documentary on one of the world’s most prolific shoe designers. I am talking about Manolo Blahnik. The documentary is called Manolo: The boy who designed shoes for lizards. One of the first things he says is “I designed shoes for little lizards”. I had to re-watch him saying that. He does talk about it again later in the documentary.
This movie shows the inside and out of the famous shoe designer Manolo Blahnik, how he got started and his journey in fashion.You get glimpses in his childhood and through his life growing up. From the view points of his friends and Manolo himself, to see how he became so successful. It is so interesting to see the man behind one of the most iconic brand of luxury shoes in the world. He loves what he does and you can see the passion that Manolo has. I found the whole documentary fascinating and if you love fashion I think you would enjoy the film as much as I did.
I have been an admirer of Manolo shoes for a long time.They always make me think of Sex in the City. Especially that iconic episode where Carrie gets her Manolo sandals stolen. Such beautiful shoes. I would love to own a pair of Manolo heels one day. Who wouldn’t? One thing I am really curious about is are they as comfortable as everyone says in the film. Have you seen this documentary? Have you tried on a pair of Manolo Blahnik heels?
