Manolo Blahnik for Liberty: Candles and notecards and cushions, oh my!
Who better than ‘Uncle Manolo’ as I affectionately refer to him (nope, never met the guy) to curate Liberty this Christmas? Yeah baby, windows, decs, the lot. And before that we get a three-month pop-up* shop launching on Fashion’s Night Out 2010 (Sept 8th) which will sell shedloads of Manolo-shaped wares. Here’s a taster.
*Oops, my bad, you can’t call it a pop-up shop. That’s a Manolo no-no. “I hate that word – pop-up – it’s so spitty,” spiteth Manolo to Vogue.co.uk.

Ooh I want the cushions and the candles!
(don't worry, I refer to Karl Lagerfeld as Uncle Karl. In my head he's my uncle or Godfather)

Wheehee! There shall be a special outing to Liberty this Christmas, oh yes there will. I'm hoping for cinnamon and pine scented shoes.

Loving the cushions! If for any reason you have to take the weight off and ditch the Manolo's on your feet (heaven forbid), you can still bring some Blahnik to the party.

Of course, everything is beautiful, and of course, I'm out of range!

Blahnik's illustrations are sometimes even better than his actual shoes – so full of edge and beauty! I'm definitely going to check out the collection, haven't been over to Liberty in a while.
I'm with him on the word 'pop- up' (spitty though? lol) because EVERYONE seems to use it now – although, being in the process of opening one myself with a collective I'm part of, you have to say, there's really no other word for it. People get what they are now. They're just no longer 'new' and 'cool' – everyone bloody has one. Ah well.
