MANOLO BLAHNIK- THE ART OF SHOES
The exhibition is a must-see for lovers of fashion, beauty, art -and of course SHOES! :) The Exhibition presents a personal retrospective of the 45-year career of the master including more than 200 pairs of shoes and 80 drawings.
Manolo Blahnik has a strong relationship with Italy; still today he continues to produce all the shoes in the Milan area where he started.
“Manolo Blahnik has worked with the finest materials and made all kind of combinations in the most unique inventive manner;his reputation lays in his surprising patterns, including his favorite, the floral Marimekko (Unikko). “
Ahhh…and so many other amazing shoes….but I will stop here. :D
But you can visit the exhibition until the 17th of April.
Palazzo Morando, via sant’Andrea 6, Milano
“PANTONE 13-1404 Pale Dogwood
Continuing the tranquil mood, Pale Dogwood is a quiet and peaceful pink shade that engenders an aura of innocence and purity. The unobtrusive Pale Dogwood is a subtle pink whose soft touch infuses a healthy glow.”
I personally would never wear pink from head-to-toe, but I have to say that I do like a lot this blush pink mixed with other colors!
Milan Design Week is is currently happening and Milan is full of interesting places to visit to discover new and inspiring designs. One of the places I visited yesterday and absolutely loved was Marimekko House in via Palermo.
Marimekko is Finnish Design house and it’s famous for the beautiful prints and strong and beautiful colors as well as for the modern and clean design. Marimekko’s motto has always been “to bring joy to everyday moments through bold prints and colours ” and this you can experiment very well by visiting this Marimekko House. I think it is just a great idea to present the collection in an apartment in a way that you can really feel how it would live and relax at home with Marimekko designs.
The furniture at apartment is from Finnish design icon Artek.
Let’s get inside the apartment!
The Marimekko Home presents the design house’s fall/winter 2016 collection. The prints are by Finnish designer icons, such as Oiva Toikka, Maija Isola, and Vuokko Eskolin-Nurmesniemi and the more recent prints are by Aino-Maija Metsola, Maija Louekari and Sanna Annukka.
A lovely collection, right?
