The new Manolo Blahnik documentary takes you inside the legend’s world
Meet the king of shoes
In these parts, there’s sort of nothing better than a fashion documentary. See: Bill Cunningham, Iris, Dior and I, Valentino: The Last Emperor…Come September 15, Music Box Films will release Manolo: The Boy Who Made Shoes For Lizards. The first official trailer was released yesterday, and if it’s any indication, teases a film that’s poised to have all the fashuns, and drama, and inimitable one-liners from a star-studded roster of cameos.
“I was not a very quiet boy,” the 74-year-old Spanish designer says by way of introduction. “Never was, never will be.”
The documentary includes interviews with industry insiders, editors, and celebrities including by not limited to Anna Wintour, Paloma Picasso, Iman, Rihanna, Naomi Campbell, and Karlie Kloss. Manolo: The Boy Who Made Shoes For Lizards will premiere in New York City and Los Angeles on September 15; a limited release will follow in major cities throughout September and October.
