Art and design enthusiasts will enjoy the fashion-meets-art exhibition An Enquiring Mind: Manolo Blahnik at The Wallace Collection in the heart of the UK capital. The exhibition showcases designs from Manolo Blahnik’s private archives, intertwined with the museum’s rich paintings, sculptures and furniture, from the 14th to the late 19th century. Combining modern Arts and Crafts with historic art, the explorative exhibition creates a new modern-classic fantasy for a contemporary audience. Spread across several rooms, the free exhibition is divided into themes, each one demonstrating the influences of a particular design style, from 18th-century Rococo to Blahnik’s interpretation of classic British heritage. The designer’s artistry and craftsmanship works in harmony with the exhibition’s beautiful and captivating setting among The Wallace Collection’s masterpieces. The unique exhibition is a must-visit collaboration to discover, explore and enjoy this summer.
The exhibition is open daily from 10am-5pm until 1 September.
