Blahnik by Boman

Blahnik by Boman!

Manolo says, the Manolo he has finally received his copy of the masterful, Blahnik by Boman: Shoes, Photographs, Conversation, perhaps the greatest book for the table of the coffees ever produced.

The pictures in this book they are of the shoes of the Maestro Manolo Blahnik set in the whimsical, artistic, striking, visually witty tableaus by the fashion photographer Eric Boman.

The juxtapositions of the shoes with the everyday things, or the objets d’art, they point up not just the skill of the photographer, but also, the beauty of these masterful shoes. Also, the pictures they remind the Manolo the Shoeblogger that the shoes of the Maestro Manolo Blahnik they are in themselves frequently objects of great wit and humor, and that above all else these they are fun; fun to wear, fun to look at.

There is the joie de vivre inherent in the shoes of the Manolo Blahnik that cannot but enhance the life of those who put them on.

So the Manolo he must recommend to you this book, either for your own table of the coffees, or for that of your close shoe-loving friend. It is the perfect gift for the holidays.

    I saw this book featured in one of the many fashion magazines to which I subscribe, and I was taken by the beauty and inventiveness of the images. I really loved how the photographer demonstrated so completely that he ‘got’ the essence of the shoes by creating an incredibly perfect, whimsical tableau for each shoe. C’est mignon!

    Alas, in my haste to post a comment, I stopped reading the Manolo’s comments after one sentence, then wrote my own, and now that I return to his comments, I find that I duplicated one of the Manolo’s wonderful words, ‘tableau!’ Perhaps I will ignore the fact that I copycatted and console myself with the fact that great minds think alike.

    The lilacs crowding the purple shoe just make me smile. I grew up in the Wisconsin wherein the lilacs actually grow. As opposed to the Houston where I am now.
    The purple shoe is just smile-making. Got to get the book.
