Manolo Blahnik’s Spring 2013 shoe collection is full of bright colors and summer styles. There are shoes for many tastes staring with feminine floral pointed shoes in pastel hues to men’s style monochromatic brogues the designer created for Victoria Beckham’s Spring 2013 show. There are also brighter shades of pink and green as well as neutral black styles decorated with metal details.
Strappy sandals are a big part of collection. But there are not only heeled models but also flat ones. Pointed slippers in polka dot and solids come with square shoe tongue which in some models is decorated with oval/square metal detail.
Open toe shoes come in various styles. One of the models is a heeled Oxford shoe in beige and red. Another interesting model is a sling back open toe shoe in hot pink color with an interestingly-shaped tongue.

Speaking of sling back styles there are quite a few of those featuring mid-height and kitten heels. One of these comes with an extended sling strap that makes for an assymetrical look.
There are also some light spring booties. One of the models is made of leather daisies while the other one features an open heel and toe. The latter also appeared at Victoria Beckham’s fashion show.
The materials in the collection are mostly leather and suede as well as satin, PVC and textile. There is a sandal in light blue that features clear stripes that are very trendy this season. Another trend – ankle strap – can also be seen in the collection.

The designer has collaborated with a number of designers on footwear for their Spring 2013 fashion shows. Besides creating a range of shoes for Victoria Beckham the designer collaborated with brands and designers like Osman, Reem Acra, Antonio Berardi, J. Mendel and many others.
I particularly liked the shoes Manolo Blahnik created in collaboration with Wes Gordon . Amazing! What do you think?
