Manolo Blahnik is known for his timeless pumps. The Hangisi pump is definitely one of the most popular because of it’s guess appearance in the movie Sex in the City 2. For a while after that movie came out the Hangisi pump was sold out everywhere. I don’t blame anyone for wanting this pump. The Hangisi pump is a beautiful classic pump and perfect for the holiday season. I would love to add it to my collection but we all know that Manolo’s don’t come cheap. If you love the Hangisi pump as much as I do Jessica Buurman has a comparable pump for less.

When I hear Manolo Blahnik, I immediately think Carrie Bradshaw, so when I was reading about Mr. Blahnik on Vogue.com I was not surprise to read that other people also associate the brand with her.  With help from the hit HBO series turned movie Sex in the City, Manolo Blahnik became a household name and was sought by every woman with a designer shoe habit. Mr.  Blahnik has such a strong passion for shoes he learned the art of shoe making in one year (www.vogue.com/voguepedia/Manolo_Blahnik).  He really loves architecture and uses architectural structures to inspire him when designing his shoes (ManoloBlahnik.com).  Manolo Blahnik is very popular but really hit his peak in the 90’s.  Madonna explained his shoes as being “just as good as sex but they last longer”(www.vogue.com/voguepedia/Manolo_Blahnik).
