Manolo – The Boy Who Made Shoes For Lizards, the documentary about Manolo Blahnik, a.k.a. ’the best shoe-maker of the 20th and 21st centuries’ delivers an intimate portrait of the acclaimed shoe designer. I’d also describe it as relaxed viewing, especially considering the film’s idyllic and often dream-like look and feel. Your heart will not race as you watch. Well, except if the sight of very well designed high fashion shoes usually does that for you.

Through interviews, re-enactments, recent footage, and more, Manolo – The Boy Who Made Shoes For Lizards reveals Blahnik’s inspirations / muses (past and present), some of his collections and his design process from idea to finished shoe.

Some of the featured fans and friends of Blahnik include superstar Rihanna, Vogue Magazine editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour, British supermodel Naomi Campbell and the late Isabella Blow – discoverer of Alexander McQueen, magazine editor and muse to hat designer Philip Treacy.

My favourite of all the people featured has to be late fashion photographer Cecil Beaton. His personality, based on the clips shown must have been very delightful indeed.

I had to watch this documentary because fashion is art and impressive creatives like Blahnik are infinitely intriguing to me. With that said, watch it for one or two surprising truths about Blahnik plus if you’re anything like me and / or you adore fashion and very beautiful shoes.

Manolo – The Boy Who Made Shoes For Lizards is a new Michael Roberts directed documentary about Manolo Blahnik, the man regarded by those who know as ‘the best shoe-maker of the 20th and 21st centuries’. Roberts’s film offers an in-depth portrait of Blahnik, the self confessed ‘cobbler’ whose work is adored by the likes of Anna Wintour, Naomi Campbell, Rihanna, Iman – to name just a few…

To say that I’m shoe obsessed would be a lie, but I am ever curious about creative people and I’ll watch this to take in the beauty and art of Blahnik’s designs.
