While I haven’t quite figured out how to score a pair of Manolo Blahnik stilletos sans the $900 price tag, I can clue you in to some pretty exciting Blahnik news.
The shoe legend will appear in Chicago this week and you’re invited to help welcome him to the Windy City. He’ll be at Barney’s on Oak Street from 5 pm to 7 pm on February 7.
In addition to shopping Blahnik’s more iconic shoes, (those jewel-encrusted pumps worn by one Carrie Bradshaw are certainly up there with Dorothy’s ruby slippers) you’ll also get a first look at the XO capsule collection he created exclusively for Barney’s. I got a glimpse at the collection and I can assure you that it doesn’t disappoint. It’s packed with classic, luxurious pairs that are exactly what you’d expect from a Blahnik (spoiler alert: Pointy toes play a huge role.) A little teaser appears above.
If you’re willing to drop some dough on a pair of shoes – which, let’s be honest, just might be worth a few weeks of eating a Ramen – you’ll even get them signed by the man himself. Carrie Bradshaw, eat your heart out. Interested in this event? RSVP ASAP to firstname.lastname@example.org!
