Manolo Blahnik. The Art of Shoes

This retrospective, which aims to illustrate the complex world of Manolo Blahnik, presents 80 original designs and more than 200 shoes signed by the Spanish designer, spanning over his almost 50 years of career. His pieces, world unique, have become objects of worship. Blahnik, who the New York Times coined as “the shoe sculptor” will be the centre of this exhibition, showcasing his creative process. Held at the Palazzo Morando in Milan, it will later move on to other cities including St Petersburg, Prague, Madrid and Toronto. The Spaniard's shoes and designs will be on display alongside an unprecedented selection of historical footwear, including pieces from the 16th to the 20th century, providing a fascinating insight.
