QUOTE ME...


Manolo Blahnik once said:
"I like experimental people." He....admires Nicolas Ghesquière's clothes for Balenciaga: "But his shoes are like furniture. They are like commodes on the feet."

Now might be a good time to eat those words...

D: I love them! But really posted them because to me they look incredibly Manolo - esque and I came across that quote at around the same time...

Oh by way...off topic...but I just read recently (I got it at the library) "Deluxe--How Luxury Lost Its Luster" by Dana Thomas. An interesting read, it'll make you pause...

I have heard about the book but it's not easy to get here (you can buy it used on Amazon.co.uk and I'm a bit funny about used books, but strangely not about library books)

Commodes? Manolo has gone down in my estimation :-(
I want that carpet though!

Fuck me/you shoes? Either way I always love what Nicolas G does!
