I Do Windows

Manolo Blahnik steps into the windows of Liberty in London

Posted in Just Genius, Nonpareil Windows by Arcadia on October 11, 2010

This October the World of Manolo Blahnik has come to the windows of Liberty in London.  Manolo Blahnik has scoured through the Liberty Print archives to create this lust-worthy collection, spectacularly displayed, floating against an Art Nouveau romantic setting of illustration and Japanese screens.

The full collection of exclusive shoes, notebooks, umbrellas and cushions all embellished with Blahnik’s beautiful illustrative flourishes are available in the stunning store-in-store, in residence for a 3 and a half month period.

In collaboration with visual communications company Just So, the department store has turned their window landscape into a visual tour de force for the designs of the world’s most sought after shoe designer, so loved by every A-lister, most famously Sarah Jessica Parker who took the brand to iconic status in her role as Carrie Bradshaw.

The windows can be viewed at Liberty, Regent Street, London W1B 5AH

Lucky for us Patrick McAleenan has sent these great photos for those of us across the Atlantic:

Displaying shoes in windows can be difficult because people tend to feel they have to over-embellish their windows.  By adding too much stuff the merchandise can get lost.  These windows are a perfect example of less is more.  The simple art and lighted panels emphasize the shoes and draws your eyes to it rather than steal the focus away from it.  This is simple and chic done really well, much like the Manolo’s we all covet!
