Manolo says, the theme of this week’s Carnivale of the Couture (hosted by the Manolo’s internet friends at the Shangri Law) it is “the fashion things you cannot live without on the desert island”.
This it is the most difficult for the Manolo as he is not someone who likes to “rough it”. Indeed, the items the Manolo believes absolutely necessary for survival they would require the medium sized shipping container.
However, the lengthy list of items it is not in the spirit of the event, and so the Manolo he has limited himself to two things.
The one thing the Manolo he absolutely cannot live without, it is the shoes of the John Lobb, the best men’s shoes in the world. If the Manolo is going to spend the rest of his life on the desert island, he will not be chasing the coconuts and the wild boars in his bare feets.
The second item that the Manolo the Shoeblogger considers indespensible for the survival, it is the single, simple, perfect pair of the shoes from the maestro Manolo Blahnik.
If the Manolo the Shoeblogger is to be trapped on the desert island, he needs something to keep his spirits afloat, something beautiful, something sublime that he can contemplate when he become depressed at his condition. This simple, elegant, classical shoe it would remind the Manolo that he has not been forgotten, that the benevolent God continues to exist, and that His works they are mighty.
