With a career spanning 45 years, Manolo Blahnik is one of the world’s most influential footwear designers and his first standalone Singapore boutique opened in The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands recently. His shoes have spellbound an international set of adoring and loyal devotees across the globe. Blahnik is a craftsman and all the shoes he develops are based on his sketches which get translated into prototypes at the factories. The exquisitely shaped lasts and heels he creates for his shoes are still perfected with his very own hands. “Shoes,” as Manolo Blahnik says, “help transform a woman.” And with those words, our Shoppes Stylist have picked a few remarkable pieces which will definitely be a head-turner.
