Manolo Blahnik Presents The Summer 2024 Collection

Manolo Blahnik presents the summer 2024 collection 
enduring inspirations of art and architecture. Embellishments take the spotlight once again with jewels, bows, buckles and buttons as the characteristically joyful finishing touches. From Blahnik’s hand-painted prints to the finest textiles and extraordinary techniques, creativity and craftsmanship remain at the heart of it all.

Manolo Blahnik has always been a master of both form and fabric. This season, modernist architecture finds new expressions in stark styles with graphic crisscrossing, undulating curves and a sculptural new heel.

Blahnik plays with absence and presence through colourful accents and cut outs on some, whilst natural rattan lends depth and relief to structural others.

An expert eye for embellishment plays this season with accoutrements reinterpreted from the gothic and belle epoque periods. Droplet-shaped glass stones, brilliant baguette buckles and butter-soft bows grace the elegant styles here. Blahnik hand-painted a botanical print for Summer’s Hangisi and further florals come in through a dramatic rose lace.

Blahnik’s lasting interest in dance first began in childhood when he discovered Les Ballets Russes through a book in his mother’s library. Exquisite costumes from the 1913 production of Nijinsky’s The Rite of Spring inspired a series of styles with evocative swirls and feather-light straps. A primary colour palette and block-toe shapes balance the tradition with a contemporary feel.

Classics are given a characteristically ‘Manolo’ twist this season with a new croc-effect calf material offered in soft and vivid tones. The love-forever Hangisi is offered in two muted, feminine shades whilst the Maysale family expands across flats, mules and pumps. An elegant new bridal edit offers styles in satin, lace and leather adorned with graceful bows and sparkling buckles.

Craftsmanship brings the Summer 2024 collection to life, shining through in structural silhouettes, remarkable embellishments and elevated classics. Manolo Blahnik takes inspirations across art and architecture and adds his inimitable creative touch for a season that’s not to miss.
