Manolo Blahnik Retrospective Kicks Off in the Hermitage Museum

The State Hermitage is hosting the exhibition "Manolo Blahnik. The Art of Shoes” dedicated to creativity of the outstanding Spanish designer.

The exposition includes 30 drawings and more than 200 shoes designed by Manolo Blahnik over the period of 45 years. The exhibition traces the development of his individual style, as well as the public’s changing tastes throughout this period. The exposition falls into six thematic sections, namely Nature, Gala, Art and Architecture, Heart, Geography, and Materials.

      Manolo Blahnik created shoes for Sofia Coppola’s sensational film Maria Antoinette. They are also represented at the exhibition. Models from the Heart section are dedicated to the personalities important for the designer - Anne Piaggi, Rihanna, Cecil Beaton, Brigitte Bardot, and Alexander the Great.

In his works the designer uses satin, taffeta, corduroy, tweed, cashmere, handmade lace, wool, linen, cotton, silk brocade, and Ottoman silk. Visitors will also see films about the technique of creating those designer shoes.
