The Capsule Collection by Manolo Blahnik will be available in stores and online from November 15 and will give its classics a series of festive updates. Every shoe for the 50th anniversary has a gold disc detail on the sole and is supplied in limited packaging. Look closely, and you’ll also notice a flurry of bell motifs that dot several of the silhouettes. The symbol has a touching backstory: “Inspired by a charm bracelet that Manolo’s mother wore during his childhood, the unique details offer a joyful sensory experience while walking,” says the press release.
The standout style in the capsule is none other than the Flequillo (pictured below) – a knee-high boot with a fringed finish in golden satin. In other words, it’s the perfect go-out shoe. If that fringed boot is a little outside of your comfort zone, the Calassohi – a sleek, shiny gold knee-high silhouette – is likely more your speed.
