    "The Stilleto Strut" Sketch featuring Manolo Blahnik and Neiman Marcus
    Condition: 1
    24" Width x 27.5" Height x 1" Depth (Framed)
    Signed and dated lower right

    This black and white sketch depicts Mr. Blahnik surrounded by fashionable women "strutting" in the street, with a Neiman Marcus storefront to the right.

    The sketch itself is very clean, only showing some small pressmarks at the top where it was possibly hung before. Not examined out of the frame. The frame and plexiglass show general scratching and nicks.

    Manolo Blahnik is a Spanish fashion designer who rose to fame in the 1970's for his modern take on the stiletto. He gained further worldwide recognition in the 1990's from the famous tv show "Sex and the City," where the main characters frequently showed their admiration for the designer. To this day, Blahnik's designs are considered to be in the top tier of the luxury shoe market.

    Property from The Neiman Marcus Collection.
