Manolo Blahnik! presented the spring-summer collection - 2011, prepared especially for Russia. Soon, several models of shoes will appear on the shelves of boutiques, which the designer calls “Russian” models. The theme of Russia is reflected, first of all, in the “names” of sandals - Rogozhin, Versilova, Ostrovsky, Karamsyn, Makar, Ivanovna. And all this despite the fact that one of the sources of inspiration in the new spring-summer season for the designer was the magnificent gardens that sprawl around his villa in the Canary Islands. Critics wonder why the "Russian" collection of the maestro is replete with exotic flowers, including natural green, lime color, bright pink shades. No less exotic are the forms of models, often repeating the outlines of leaves of tropical plants. It is very possible that this is how the designer understood and expressed the mysterious Russian soul.
