Manolo Blahnik Boutiques will open at Harrod’s and Liberty in London, Fall 2012. These concessions will be operated by Kurt Geiger, Europe’s largest luxury shoe retailer.

The Harrod’s location will be about 300 square feet, according to sources.

European distribution of Manolo Blahnik shoes has been limited, and is far less than that of American Blahnik availability. That might change if these boutiques are an indicator of things to come. 
A retail insider in Paris, France tells us that she expects Manolo Blahnik to open a shop in Paris’ Printemps department store via its Kurt Geiger concession. Manolo Blahnik is already carried at Printemps in Paris and Deauville via their Maria Louisa designer boutique concession.

We’re dedicating this post to a fabulous fashion fan we met in Edmonton, Canada, now living in swinging London!
