Manolo Blahnik: Fleeting Gestures and Obsessions

488 pages of history trapped in one amazing book – Manolo Blahnik: Fleeting Gestures and Obsessions – a complete book about inspiration and creativity, whose texts Blahnik wrote himself, a dialogue the designer has with Sofia Coppola, Pedro Almodovar, Andre Leon Telly and many other prominent figures which inspired him along the way. 

Four decades of life and perfect shoes, 250 pictures of the best models in the history of Manolo Blahnik, saw the light thanks to the publishing house, Rizzoli New York.

Manolo Blahnik: Fleeting Gestures and Obsessions

I think, My God, I’ve been through a lot! But I haven’t done yet what I wanted to do, more or less. I want more things, I want to experiment in new materials. In that aspect, I’m very old-fashioned. I’m very curious. Those pages say, ‘Yes, this is what I have done,’ now the children get inspired or they copy or whatever, and I just move on. This book, maybe it’s there to say goodbye to those kind of shoes, [but] the people in the book who inspired me will be with me forever.” – said Blahnik.
