Manolo says, here are the unusual shoes from the Vigotti, about which the Manolo he is of the two minds.

On the one of the minds, the Manolo appreciates the interesting technique used to make this; the leather it cut with the laser, and then laid over the colored fabric. This it is the cool idea, and the shoes they is not without their charms.

However, on the other of the minds, the patterns of the leather and the combination of the colors they are not exactly what the Manolo would have wanted.

Still, the idea it is the good one, and the Manolo he hopes to see someone do this again, as there is great potential here for beauty.

The Carnivale of Couture #3

Manolo says, the Carnivale of Couture #3 it is now posted at the Shangri Law! You must go read the this weeks offerings from the super fantastic fashion bloggers.

Cannot Live Without

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.

John Lobb Toe Cap Oxford

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.


The Divorce of the Hasselhoff

The Hoff and the Soon-to-be-former Mrs. Hoff

Manolo says, many, many of the Manolo’s internet friends have been emailing the Manolo, sending him links to the articles which announce that the magnificent David Hasselhoff he is divorcing his wife of the many years, the Pamela Bach.

Like many of the great actors, it is clear to the Manolo that the Hasselhoff, he is the profound man beset by the personal demons. However, again like many of the great actors, he has been able to take the roiling emotions of real life and transmute them into the purest, most refined sort of artistic gold.

Like the Brando, or the Olivier, the Hasselhoff he will weather the tempest and will emerge the better artist for it.

P.S. Many thanks to the Manolo’s friend the Jen, who first broke the news to the Manolo.
