Manolo_Spring2012-post
Sure, seeing the season’s newest Manolo Blahniks keeps us lusting for our next splurge, but have you ever given any thought to the brains behind the brand? George Malkemus, the president of Manolo Blahnik and an integral Blahnik partner of 27 years, may not be responsible for the design of the shoes themselves, but he is responsible for maximizing their availability to stores nationwide, so we all can have a taste of Manolo. Think of him as the heel to the sole of those gorgeous stilettos.
And on Wednesday, January 25, you can meet the brains behind the beauty himself as George Malkemus will be presenting the newly arrived Manolo Blahnik spring collection at Saks Fifth Avenue Bal Harbour. The collection features bright colors with a number of interesting cuts and shapes to keep you on your toes — pun fully intended.
When: Wednesday, January 25, 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Where: Saks Fifth Avenue Bal Harbour, 9700 Collins Avenue; 305-865-1100.
