Manolo: The Boy Who Made Shoes For Lizards

large_Manolo_Theatrical_Poster_2764x4096
A documentary puts the spotlight on legendary footwear designer: Manolo Blahnik.

Capsule Review

Cast: Manolo Blahnik, Anna Wintour, Rihanna, Karlie Kloss, Iman, Naomi Campbell, Rupert Everett and Issac Mizrahi

Director: Michael Roberts

Rating: 7/10

A documentary exploring the life and times of the legendary accessories designer Manolo Blahnik, dotted with quotes from the people who knew him best? It sounds like a novel idea (on paper). And that is just what I liked about this movie – that it focuses on being an informative documentary on the Spanish fashion designer, and nothing else. The storytelling centers on getting the opportunity to learn more about who exactly is, Manolo. Some interesting tidbits about Manolo included in the fold: his first shop was in London (during the ’60s), Manolo’s very personally involved with the renowned creativity displayed in his brand’s handcrafted shoes, which are manufactured in his factories in Italy, and a remarkable story – Manolo’s journey to the top, impressively began with the crafting of shoes from chocolate wrappers in Canary Islands, for lizards. The film manages to caricature Manolo as a humane person, someone who’s quite uncommon, and it really helps to connect with him for that, which makes learning about the fashion designer, all the more interesting and worthwhile.
