Iconic footwear designer Manolo Blahnik has created a limited-edition collection for the UAE. Speaking exclusively to Savoir Flair, the shoe guru says he was “inspired by the regal elegance of the UAE woman” to create the exclusive pumps and bag. “It is a very classic shoe; we have had it for so many seasons now, and it is still very popular. Its shape is very flattering and can be worn for many different occasions.”
The popular ‘Hangsi’ shoes and ‘Gothisi’ clutch were reimagined using a smooth, platinum fabric, and each was adorned with the brand’s signature buckle, but this time embellished in pearls instead of the usual crystals. “The pearl brooch is our new take on the original crystal accessory that the shoe originally comes with,” Blahnik explains. “So playing with new materials and stones seemed to be appropriate to give it a twist. I like to keep it interesting every season with new materials and textures.”
The limited-edition collection from Manolo Blahnik is available at Level Shoe District, Bloomingdale’s, and Harvey Nichols – Dubai.
