Manolo Blahnik to open boutique within London’s LIBERTY
Luxury shoemaker Manolo Blahnik has announced a deal for British department store Liberty to set up a shop in shop starting with the Spring Summer 2012 season. The UK currently only has one exclusive outlet at the designer’s store on Old Church Street in London’s exclusive Chelsea neighborhood.
Situated on Regent Street in the heart of London’s shopping district since 1875, Liberty boasts a long fashion legacy and is best known for its floral, abstract and paisley patterned print fabrics.
The store has created a designated area on its second floor for the creator’s iconic heels, not to mention accessories including scarves and bags. The shoe designer has collaborated with Liberty in the past. Just last year he opened the World of Manolo pop-up shop there, stocking shoes and accessories.
