Manolo Blahnik has a special attitude to our literature - he calls Dostoevsky's The Teenager one of his favorites. “This season, in particular, I was so inspired that I created several models in the Russian style,” the designer admits. Shoes made of fur and brocade with gold ornaments, Blahnik assures us, takes us to the era of imperial Russia. Indeed, black lace-up ankle boots, as well as shoes in noble shades of red and green, can be easily imagined in the interiors of the Winter Palace or noble estates where Tolstoy's heroines lived - Anna Karenina and Natasha Rostova. Having fantasized about how shoes with lace, lacing or a brooch resembling a picture baguette of the Baroque era would look in the 21st century, we came up with four fashionable ways to wear "Russian" shoes from the new Manolo Blahnik collection.To fully get used to the role of the chosen character, revisit the famous film adaptations - with Liv Tyler, Sophie Marceau, Audrey Hepburn, Keira Knightley.
