Revisit the Spring 2023 collection and discover Manolo’s fundamental essence of craftmanship imbued in every detail. Explore the inspiration behind the styles of Spring 2023, from Manolo’s own 1970s silhouettes to painterly botanicals and exquisite embroidered details.


No Manolo Blahnik collection would be complete without a touch of sparkle. For Spring 2023, he referenced 18th century tiaras, with an ornate curled crystal embellishment, whilst asymmetrical silhouettes in soft pastel satins punctuated the collection with a regal sense of elegance.



Creating a brand new digital print for Spring '23, Manolo designed a lush wild garden pattern reminiscent of vintage botanical illustrations. Referencing 18th century chintz fabrics, styles adorned with delicate patterns and a multicoloured botanical buckle offered a playful yet modern touch to the collection. 



Beautifully embroidered details underpined Manolo’s attention to detail and craftmanship for Spring 2023. Hand made in India, this collection featured designs with clusters of beads and pearls combining to form an exquisite cherry blossom pattern.



Within Manolo’s own archive lives the shoe he designed for Ossie Clark in 1971, a moment that was pivotal to the success of the shoe designer. The iconic lace-up sandal was recreated and complete with the leaf and cherry motif for Spring '23.


“I created my first styles for Ossie Clark, but it could’ve been the end of my career! Those poor girls couldn’t walk properly but people loved it. Sir Cecil Beaton said to me, ‘is this a new way of walking?'" - Manolo Blahník
