Manolo: The Boy Who Made Shoes for Lizardsis a behind-the-scenes look at one of the most revered people in all of fashion, and a must-see for anyone who’s ever looked longingly at a pair of his extraordinary shoes. Featuring Manolo Blahnik, Anna Wintour, Paloma Picasso, Rihanna, Naomi Campbell, Iman, Rupert Everett and André Leon Talley.
Manolo: The Boy Who Made Shoes for Lizards gives viewers an intimate look at the life and work of the artistic genius and creator of these shoes – Manolo Blahnik – the world’s most influential shoe designer. For Manolo, everything starts and ends with the craft. He has a deep passion for the purest form of traditional shoe-making, and ensures that each of his designs are handmade in the age-old process, using centuries old tools. But Manolo’s life is a contradiction. Surrounded by the glare of publicity and fame, he prefers to avoid that attention, allowing him to practice the precision craft of shoe-making behind closed doors, away from the watchful eyes of his adoring fans and the relentless fashion industry spies.
From personal interviews with Manolo, his muses, clients, and contemporaries – all those who helped put him on the map – we’ll get to understand the man behind the most beautiful shoes on earth.
