Manolo Blahnik Hates Relationships, Loves Netflix-------
Seventy-one-year-old footwear designer Manolo Blahnik—the man, the legend—disclosed some real gems to The Guardian this weekend. Most interesting was his comment about his love life—or lack thereof. “I don’t fall in love with people, I fall in love with art. Relationships for me are a no-no,” he said. “Imagine having to talk to someone all the time or waking up with them breathing all over you. Not for me at all. I find it very uncivilized.” Wise words, though I wouldn’t mind having a love affair with a pair of Blahnik’s stilettos. The designer also stated that he is “old-fashioned and proud. I hate e-mails, but the Internet can be wonderful. I use it to buy rare books, and to binge-watch House of Cards on Netflix.” And he even offered up some life advice: “Remain dignified, dress well, be good to other people and you’ll be fine.” Who knew Manolo moonlit as a philosopher?
