Celebrating 50 Years of Manolo Blahnik

The glistening gold capsule collection celebrates Manolo Blahnik’s momentous 50th anniversary. To celebrate such a pivotal moment in the house's history, The Manolo Blahnik Archives opened in conjunction with this milestone collection - a virtual world celebrating decades of artisanry, artistry and family, available to explore here.

Discover details and inspirations behind the whimsical sold-out collection below.

Upon revisiting his most distinctive trimmings and textures from over the years, Blahnik employed feathers and fringes for a pair of standalone styles. The theatrical knee-high boot, Flequillohi, featured excessive tiered fringing, trimmed with a ribbon of black beading, to honour Blahnik’s use of impeccable materials.

Embracing his signature sense of opulence, the house’s most iconic classic styles received a golden update for the anniversary capsule. The timeless Maysale mule was transformed in enchanting liquid gold and featured renewed embellishments in gold-tone hardware with glowing citrine crystals.

The golden capsule collection perfectly captures the pillars of Manolo Blahnik – sophisticated and timeless with a touch of fantasy. Blahnik’s creative expression and masterful artisanry culminate in a collection of endless elegance, honouring the 50 years of extraordinary style for which he and the house are beloved.
