The Buttons of the Lagerfeld

July 12th, 2005
By Manolo the Shoeblogger

Manolo says, many of the Manolo’s internet friends they have emailed him the link to the gossip column of the New York Daily News, the column which contains the following item about the Evil One.

Another secret of designer Karl Lagerfeld’s new skinny look is that all his shirts button up the back. “It’s the only way he can get the front sheer the way he likes it,” says a fashion snitch. “But it means he has to have his assistant do him up every day.”

This, of the course, it is not the news to the Manolo…

Behold the Shoes of the Oetzi!

Manolo says, the Manolo’s internet friend the LaBellaDonna, she has written the most amusing poem on the occasion of the appearance of the shoes of the Iceman.

Behold the shoes of the Oetzi!
For keeping warm the footsie!
Safe from rocks, the tootsie!
Protected from rain and schmutzie!
– although their owner is kaputzie.

Ha! This it has made the Manolo laugh much.



The Shoes of the Iceman

Manolo says, behold! The Shoes of the Iceman.

Lined with hay and held together by a net of rough string, the leather shoes look bulky, itchy and downright uncomfortable. But if they were good enough for Oetzi, the 5,300-year-old man found in an alpine glacier in 1991, they’re good enough for the modern foot, insists Petr Hlavacek, a Czech shoe expert who has created replicas, taken them out for a walk and pronounced them far better than most modern footwear.

“These shoes are very comfortable. They are perfectly able to protect your feet against hard terrain, against hot temperatures, against cold temperatures,” he said, showing off the replicas in his office at Tomas Bata University in this eastern Czech town.

Despite their flimsy leather soles, the shoes offer a good grip and superb shock absorption, and are blister-free, Hlavacek said.

It’s like going barefoot, “only better,” he said. “In the Oetzi shoes, you feel something like freedom, flexibility.”

Like going barefeeted, only you look like the dork.

Manolo says, this shoe it could be the bestseller with the hippies of the crunchiness, but only if the hay it is replaced with the hemp.

Galliano!!!

By Manolo the Shoeblogger

Manolo says, nothing makes the Manolo smile like the visit from the funky little fashion troll, John Galliano.

Yes, the Manolo he likes to poke the gentle fun at the Galliano himself, yet at the same of the time, the Manolo he must confess that there is in some of the creations of the Galliano the ridiculous, ethereal, unwearable beauty.

For the example.

Ridiculous! Beautiful!

It is ridiculous! It is beautiful! It is Galliano!

The Manolo he is so confused.
