In the following video shot for New York magazine, a reporter goes to a book signing of Manolo Blahnik’s and spends a little one-on-one time with the designer. During the interview, Blahnik addresses topics ranging from the fact that he thinks platform shoes are vulgar, to his favorite Manolo of all time, to the many mispronunciations of his name. He says he’s heard Manilla, Magnolia, and even Meenolio.
