Manolo says, our Maestro, the genius shoe maker, Manolo Blahnik has made the appearance in Beverly Hills, and has granted the press the interview. Naturally, he is his typically delightful and gracious self, dispensing provocatively charming advice. (For the example, he does not like the platform shoes, he finds them “ugly”. )
For the humble shoeblogger, however, this was the section that he found most gratifying.
Can we talk about shoe etiquette — when to wear or not wear certain shoes? Like, can you wear satin during the day?
Yes, I think so. I don’t think there are rules any longer. Coming from England where all things work . . . daytime, night, it all works.
I’m proper, I like to have a pump for evening. White shoes are for a wedding or daytime in summertime when it’s hot and shimmering, yes. In the winter, if you’re going to some kind of resort like Aspen, you can also wear them. I mean, why not?
Ayyyy! The Maestro Manolo Blahnik is in agreement with the humble Manolo the Shoeblogger, who has said many times that the white shoes are acceptable after the Day of Labor.
And here, in honor of this, the Shoeblogger give you the Maestro’s classic Carolyne mid-heel halter pump, in beautiful white satin.
