An Enquiring Mind: Manolo Blahník at the Wallace Collection

June 10 – Sept 1, 2019
Hertford House, Manchester Square, London W1U 3BN, United Kingdom

“The greatest shoemaker in England,” Manolo Blahník once said, “used to be the royal shoemaker for the Queen Mother. This is where I learnt my trade.” The Wallace Collection was no small part of Blahník’s education, its wealth of 17th- and 18th-century art a tutorial in salon and court style. This exhibition places Blahník’s reimagined d’Orsays, pumps, and mules among the paintings that inspired them. —L.J.
