Why Does Manolo Blahnik Hate Platforms?

October 18, 2010 by Hilary Sloan

Manolo Blahnik – thanks to Carrie Bradshaw – is known for his high fashion (and price tag).  But did you know he hates “chunky American shoes”, too?  The designer recently dismissed platform shoes in his new book, stating that they are “the wrong shape for the leg.” Much like when Calvin Klein decried shorts, we think its a sign of a high-end designer being a bit out of touch with fashion reality. We won’t tell you not to wear platforms, (we’ve owned many slimming pairs) but we will show you wear to buy some of Mr. Blahnik’s sexy heels at a reasonable price:

These Manolo Blahnik Matte Dress Sandals ($313) are a classic, wear-with-anything pair. High boots are on trend, and these Manolo Blahnik Shearling High Heel Boots ($598 down from $1,495) will keep you warm and chic. These jeweled Manolo Blahnik Hangisi Flats ($945) would be the perfect skimmer to wear with jeans and a blazer or with a little black dress.
