Join staff at the Wallace Collection to explore the Wallace’s most fashionable portraits alongside sensational Manolo Blahnik shoes as part of the exhibition ‘An Enquiring Mind: Manolo Blahnik at the Wallace Collection’
The exhibition features a personally selected edit of shoe designs from Blahnik’s private archives set amongst the masterpieces of the Wallace Collection. This exciting venture juxtaposes an icon from the world of contemporary fashion with Wallace’s outstanding collection that has been an inspiration to artists since it opened to the public in 1900.
The exhibition places Blahnik’s exquisite designs in the intimate context of the Wallace Collection alongside the paintings, sculpture and furniture that inspired his enquiring mind, leading to a dialogue between the old and the new, the art and the craft, the real and the fantasy.
The event starts at 1 pm, but you are very welcome to join for lunch at 12 pm (bringing a packed lunch).
