The Market: Manolo Blahnik for Mimi Plange

6 Sep


One of our favorite on-the-rise designers is Mimi Plange. We love her pitch-perfect mix of old world glamour and modern easy elegance. Following her breakthrough collection for FW11, Andre Leon Talley suggested to Manolo Blahnik that he do a collaboration with Plange. And we are glad he did- Blahnik’s team created two styles that will debut at Plange’s SS12 presentation on September 7, said to be inspired by African leathers and South African beadwork, respectively. When we start to feel the winter blues taking hold, we will be daydreaming about this beaded open toe… For more information on Plange and to see her FW11 collection, visit
