Contain my excitement?! Not likely…
Hot on the heels (do excuse the pun) of yesterday’s Kirkwood x Liberty post comes the news of another designer shoe collaboration from London’s fashion fairy godmother…and this time it’s the incomparable Christ of cobblers Manolo Blahnik working miracles in the design seat – phew, my tootsies are all a tingle!
If, as Belinda Carlisle is oft heard wailing to half empty discotheque dance-floors at 1am, ‘heaven is a place on earth,’ I’ve a strong feeling that place would be the ethereal treasure-filled paradise that is Liberty’s – not some godforsaken holiday resort lorded over by hellish beings in red coats with faces forever frozen in a rictus grin so terrifying even the blind are reduced to tears. So, on behalf of shoephiliacs the world over – Thank You Liberty!
The – don’t-call-it-a-pop-up-shop – ‘World of Manolo’ hits Liberty’s on the 10th of September and is open to worshippers for 3 months…a definite ‘dear Santa…’ if ever there was one!
