Mimi Plange & Manolo Blahnik

Manolo Blahnik for Mimi Plange S/S 2012

Fashion designer Mimi Plange has partnered with one of the world’s most legendary fashion brands, Manolo Blahnik for her Spring Summer 2012 collection.  The floral and Eastern inspired collection is globally infused with references to the Himba and Herero women of present day Namibia.

Manolo Blahnik for Mimi Plange S/S 2012

“I wanted to take the Eastern floral of Spring, the traditional dress of the Himba, the Victorian dress of the Herero, and blend them together into something modern, soft and strong.  The shoes are reflective of that spirit-modern shapes and heels grounded with traditional beading and patterns.  It has been wonderful to see the inspiration showcased with the beauty of a Manolo Blahnik shoe and I am truly honored to have had the opportunity to be able to collaborate with the brand.”-Mimi Plange
