Liberty + Manolo

Posted by Francesca Alfano On Thursday, March 25, 2010
London is calling my name... more specifically, Liberty is doing the calling. I didn't know much about the famed department store until about a month ago, but now I feel like I can't get away. First was the collaboration with Target, then a line of products with MAC Cosmetics, and now a collaboration with Manolo Blahnik. The first two are available stateside, but the "World of Manolo" in-store boutique will only be available at the London store. It opens in September, which sounds like a perfect time for a little trip across the Atlantic. Although Blahnik is known for shoes, there will be a range of items, including scarves, candles, shoehorns, Wellington boots, and notebooks, at the boutique. As I mentioned in the Liberty for Target post, the Liberty archives hold more than 43,000 prints and Blahnik has searched through all of them to select three 19th-century prints for his line of products. In addition, his fall footwear collection will be exclusive at Liberty and eight of his designs will be reworked with Liberty patterns. This is the first time he is selling the collection outside of his stores in the U.K. and also the first collaboration he said yes to. And this has just given me more motivation to start saving for my trip!
