The Wedges

Manolo says, that one of the Manolo’s many internet friends has asked the Manolo the question.

I, like everyone and her sister, am looking for a pair of wedge sandals to wear this spring and summer that won’t make my delicate little feet look like the Queen Mary I & II. I don’t much go for espadrilles; they get so ratty and stinky after the first rainfall. But I do really, really like wedges with cork heels. And I’d be especially excited if you knew of any done up in metallic or beige leather, and positively orgasmic if they also had an ankle strap. Oh, and since these shoes are so trendy, I’d like to stay under $100. Yes, I’m also a picky eater.

Manolo says, the wedges they are indeed “in” this season. Here are the pair of the wedges from the Anne Klein that are slightly more than $100 American dollars, but are indeed most pleasing to the Manolo.

If these they are not to your liking than perhaps you be would more interested in these shoes from the Coach.

Manolo says, these shoes from the Coach, they have a charming simplicity that the Manolo finds appealing.

Manolo says, the Manolo he has been sounding the alarum about this for the years, only now, finally, when the threat it is perhaps too grave, do the peoples they begin to listen.

Lagerfeld Aims for Global Domination

Karl Lagerfeld is going global — again.

The white-haired German designer with the ponytail and dark glasses has become the most famous man in fashion thanks to his designs for Chanel and his collaboration with Swedish high-street retailer Hennes & Mauritz on a limited edition collection.

Now he plans to propel his lesser-known own label, Lagerfeld Gallery, to the same level of fame.

“What I like is to be everywhere, to design collections everywhere and to have this kind of ubiquity in every sense of the word,”

Manolo says, They shall lay hold on bow and spear; they are cruel, and have no mercy; their voice roareth like the sea; and they ride upon horses, set in array as men for war against thee, O daughter of Zion. We have heard the fame thereof: our hands wax feeble: anguish hath taken hold of us, and pain, as of a woman in travail. Go not forth into the field, nor walk by the way; for the sword of the enemy and fear is on every side. O daughter of my people, gird thee with sackcloth, and wallow thyself in ashes: make thee mourning, as for an only son, most bitter lamentation: for the spoiler shall suddenly come upon us.

From the Archives of the Manolo: The Camper

Manolo says, recently the Manolo he has received several of the emails like the following from his internet friends:

What does the Manolo think of the Camper shoes? For men and women. Their new collection is out today.

This question it is one that the Manolo he has answered in the past.

*****From the Archives of the Manolo*****

Manolo says, one of the Manolo’s many internet friends has asked the Manolo the question.

I am very curious about what the manolo thinks of the camper shoes for a casual, urban-y shoe. of my friends, most would not wear, but i believe the twin line is supercute and comfty for hanging out daily. Which do you think are the most superfantastic or is the entire line too weird for the wear?

Manolo says, Manolo cannot help it, but the shoes of the Camper always make the Manolo think of the Larry David. But unlike the Larry David, the Manolo, he thinks that the Campers they are not all that.

The trouble with the shoes of the Camper is that they were the very trendy shoes for whom the moment it has passed.

In the opinion of the Manolo, the better choice, but in the vein of the similarness, are the shoes of the John Fluevog, although Manolo suspects that the same thing–the style which will not outlive the moment of the trend–will happen to the Fluevog in the time of three or four of the years.

The exceptions to this, they are the shoes of the Camper and the Fluevog which are modeled on shoes of the past.

For the example, this Camper shoe for the mens, the 1910, it is one of the few of the Camper shoes of which the Manolo approves.

As you can see, this shoe it is based on an honest stout-hearted men’s shoe of the past, and because of this it is quite good.

Manolo says, the trick to fashion is to buy the things which are very current, yet have the feel of the timelessness. This is why the things that are gimmicky, they do not last.


Manolo says, so to summarize, with the shoes of the Camper the Manolo he is all, meh, the boat of the Manolo they do not float.
