Manolo Blahnik will be showing off his creations next to works of art from the Wallace Collection

From June 10 to Sept. 1, Manolo Blahnik and the Wallace Collection are collaborating on an exhibition called “An Enquiring Mind: Manolo Blahnik at the Wallace Collection.”

No stay in London will be compete for art and fashion lovers without a tour of the exhibition, which presents the Spanish shoe designer’s creations alongside exceptional works of art from the museum’s collection.

The worlds between art and fashion can often be spanned in one step as proven by the Wallace Collection’s newest exhibition. The exhibition is the result of a close collaboration between the Wallace’s director Xavier Bray, who had always held a special place in Blahnik’s creative process for the works of the London museum.

“The Wallace Collection has been a point of reference for me since my early days in London,” Blahnik said in a statement. “It was, and remains, one of my favourite museums with the most refined selection of art. I am incredibly humbled and honoured to be a part of the project and have my work displayed at the museum.”

Over the course of two months, art and fashion lovers will be given the opportunity to eavesdrop on a dialogue between the famous designer’s shoes and some of the museum’s best-known paintings, sculptures and fine furniture.

The exhibition will establish a parallel between the ancient and the modern, as well as craftsmanship and art, all while highlighting Blahnik’s creative process.

Rooms dedicated to Commedia dell’arte, Rococo and Spanish art, will underscore one theme from the history of Blahnik’s house and its namesake designer’s sources of inspiration. Among the highlights of the show, guests will be able to take in the pastel pink shoes Blahnik designed for Sofia Coppola’s film “Marie Antoinette”, in dialogue with Jean-Honoré Fragonard “The Swing”.
