Back to School with Manolo Blahnik x Liberty

Time was when September meant the annual visit to stock up on sensible footwear ready for the new school year ahead; I remember frequently bumping into half my class queuing to be measured for yet another pair of Clark's mary janes or Start-Rite slip ons. Thanks to stiletto maestro Manolo Blahnik, this September will undoubtedly see more mature (but no less excited) shoe queues when he launches his specially designed Liberty collaboration with a pop up in the heritage store. This London Fashion Week 'World of Manolo' will only be there for three months and will feature unique Manolo Blahnik x Liberty items including shoes, candles and new Liberty prints alongside the designer's A/W 10 collection. No pencil cases though.

In the meantime, if September feels like too long to wait for a flowery fix, have a look at the Liberty range for the American budget chain Target. Picks of the best pieces from the collection, all featuring classic signature prints that are perfect for spring, are available now on the website and arrive instore on Monday (29th March).
