The Story Of The Manolo Blahnik BB Pump

“I have always liked court shoes, especially with thin, high heels,” said Mr. Blahnik.  ”Suddenly, two years later it was the most successful shoe!  The beauty of the BB is that it can be worn at any time, anywhere, in any color and any material.  It is so versatile!”  Reintroduced in 2009, Mr. Blahnik designed this classic pump as the antithesis of everything else people were wearing at the time – over-designed, over-accessorized, heavy shoes.  He wanted something simple, sleek, elegant.

The BB was inspired by 1950s fashion, and was aptly named after the inimitable Brigitte Bardot.  “It reminds me of mid 20th century elegance and women like Suzy Park and Jean Shrimpton”, Mr. Blahnik explains.
