Format: Paperback
Well over a hundred beautifully detailed sketches, and lavish illustrations grace this appropriately sumptuous book, Blahnik taking shoe design to a whole new level, this is the perfect tome for all fashoinadas, or fans of Sex and the City, where the 'Manolo' was introduced to a new generation of women.
Pleased to say the book is well affordable, even if the product it salutes is not, at least for us ordinary mortals.

A lovely book of preliminary coloured sketches but it would have been so much better if there had been photos of some actual products of the designs[only a couple were shown]

This book was a perfect birthday present for a shoe-lover! The book itself was in great shape although the cellophane was ripped!

Perfect 30 Oct. 2010
By Dr. Lee D. Carlson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
One can easily become a synesthete by viewing the artwork of Manolo Blahnik. His shoes are like the fragrance of a fine perfume, with the length of their heels a measure of their musk. If the senses become superposed when turning the pages of this book, it is because each illustration seems to be created ex nihilio, with total originality and no remembrance of the prior page. Each design always instills a shortness of breath, and the imagination wanders to the legs of the women on which they might decorate. It is there that this architect of the foot finds his optimal expression. It is there where the geometry and color of his stilettos find their display as a natural canvas. The femininity then grows beyond bounds, and masculinity finds itself delightfully mesmerized. One can view this art from afar or close up; either way provokes admiration and desire, and a possible reconfiguration of the woman from standing to supine. Such a consequence seems inevitable, and is a testament to the power of the Blahnik shoe.
