A wonderful pair of shoes from green satin with ankle straps which are almost completely covered in precious stones (11.41 carat diamonds, 48,61 carat rubellites and 38.19 carat amethysts): this is the result of unique collaboration between the Bulgari and Manolo Blahnik brands!
The luxurious precious stones in shades of pink have the shape of chilli peppers. This motif could be seen on the necklace from the Bulgari Festa collection which first saw the light of day this year. And why chilli peppers? They are regarded as a powerful aphrodisiac, are usually part of traditional amulets and last but not least, lend pizzazz to luxury Italian footwear. The unusual combination of purple and green represents energy and originality which both brands excel in.
After Prague, the exhibition showcasing a plethora of luxury shoes from the workshop of the designer Manolo Blahnik entitled Art of Shoes, has moved to Madrid where it will be on display at the Museo Nacional de Artes Decorativas until 8 March 2018.
Manolo Blahnik and the Art of Shoes exhibition also graced Prague with its presence, this specifically being on the luxury premises of Kampa Museum. You can have a look what the exhibition looked like HERE.
