Manolo Blahnik has always been a film lover, so it is only natural for him to unveil his Spring 2014 collection through moving image. His five-minute short ‘Jealousy’ created by Michael Robert is starring Rupert Everett and Lucy Birley. The film was inspired by the turn of the 20th century – the music, the silent movies and its beauty.
“I wanted it to have that feeling of elegance and sophistication that that period gave to the world,” he explained. “It’s about jealousy, but mainly the cultural richness that came with that time. Everyone was extreme, which I love.”
