This iconic shoe brand just made its Net-A-Porter debut

Everyone's favourite fancy shoe label (including Carrie Bradshaw's) has launched on Net-A-Porter, making it even easier to shop. Dangerous, I know.

Designer Manolo Blahnik, whose whimsical designs reached new levels of fame thanks to Sex And The City, has designed new styles for the occasion, which sit alongside some of his more iconic shoes, including the Hangisi (as worn by Carrie on her wedding day) and Maysale.

For the latest collection, the designer took inspiration was inspired by renowned artists in a mix of mediums including design, photography, and film. Think jewel-tone colours, romantic patterns and rich textures.

Stand out styles include a pump with new ankle chain accessory that is very on-trend right now and evokes the glamorous 90’s supermodel era. We also have the Cluntius boots which were inspired from the costuming in an adaptation of Boris Pasternak’s novel Doctor Zhivago, part of a series of tall boots and shearling detailing, launching in a later drop.


Other arty details include bold colours, embellishments and structural shapes and cut out details which tap perfectly into this season's love-in with escapism.

Net-A-Porter says, 'We are still seeing a positive reaction to "escapist" and emotional fashion styles. Key styles for this category include quilted mules and chain-embellished mesh pumps from Bottega Veneta and plexi and chain-embellished mules from Amina Muaddi'.

Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.

However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.

Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
