An Enquiring Mind: Manolo Blahnik at the Wallace Collection

WHEN:

10th June 2019 to 1st September 2019
Closed Now, Free Entry

WHERE:

The Wallace Collection, Hertford House, Manchester Square, London, W1U 3BN

WHAT:

This new exhibition features a personally selected edit of shoe designs from Manolo Blahnik's private archives set amongst the masterpieces of The Wallace Collection - juxtaposing an icon from the world of contemporary fashion with an outstanding collection that has been an inspiration to artists since it opened to the public in 1900.

Each room explores a particular theme associated with Blahnik's work, demonstrating his thirst for knowledge and the wide ranging influences upon his designs. Visitors are taken on a journey through Blahnik's imagination, spanning the theatre and spectacle of the Commedia dell’arte, the fashions inspired by Blahnik's native Spain, 18th-century Rococo style, his own personal interpretation of Englishness and much more.

+ PHOTO & VIDEO
The exhibition is very inspiring. The juxtaposition of Manolos with old masters' presents a classic-on-classic viewing experience and leaves much in imagination.
This sounds amazing! Firmly in the diary. Looking forward to it 💕
