Manolo says, This is the sort of item that gives luxury goods the bad name, and makes those who buy them seem silly.

Not because jump boots are not useful and very stylish in their way, but because the best jump boots in the whole world can be purchased for the the mere $121, hundreds of American dollars below the inflated Chanel retail price.

And these $121 boots, what are they?

Go ask the paratrooper, he’ll tell you. They’re Corcorans. Anything else is for ‘legs’.

Coco at the Costume Institute

Manolo says, it is no secret that the Manolo he has the “issues” with the current leadership at the Chanel, however, this it does not mean that the Manolo he does not love the Coco. Indeed the Manolo he adores the Coco, even as he laments what has happened to the brand in the recent years.

Sadly, the Manolo he has not yet been able to make it to the Costume Institute for the show of the Coco Chanel clothes. Happily for us, the Manolo’s internet friend, the Barney’s Girl, she has!
