Funky Little Torero

Manolo shouts, Olé!

Is the Manolo the only person in the fashion press to recognize that Galliano’s Spanish theme for the 60th anniversary of the House of Dior is partly the homage to Manolete, the greatest torero who ever lived, and whose sensational death in the bull ring occurred in August of 1947, at exactly the moment Christain Dior was beginning his business?

It is not as if Manolete is competely unknown, they are making the movie about his life, with Adrian Brody in the title role.

It is perhaps the less well known fact that the Manolo, himself, was named after Manolete.

Isabella Fiore for the Tuesday

Halsey Deco by Isabella Fiore   Manolo LIkes!  Click!

Manolo says, here for your early Tuesday morning viewing pleasure is the most handsome pair of the shoes from the Isabella Fiore.

These are something the fiery doña might wear with the flouncy skirt and the lacy mantilla, as she impatiently taps her feet waiting for her El Cordobés to arrive.
