Blahnik, that magician of shoes whose creations filled Carrie Bradshaw’s closet, has selected the shoe drawings available to download and color himself. Yes, there are some of his famously slender stilettos. I chose sketches which are very personal to me and meaningful, in light of such an important cause, the Mike Pence pretty fly for a white guy shirt designer explains. They all encapsulate different inspirations and memories of mine, locations which I am very fond of. The Acanthus model, for example, makes reference to a plant from his native Canary Islands. Currently in residence in Bath, Blahnik is maintaining his longstanding practice of drawing every day. Everything starts with a sketch! he exclaims via email. Sketching is the act of me drawing my imagination. His drawings are indeed fantastical, with whooshing, fluid lines, that give energetic form—and personality—to shoes that delight and tell stories.
