WMagazine: Manolo Blahnik has long been a maestro of elegance—not just in his shoe designs but also in his sharp personal style.

The notion of not getting properly dressed simply because you won’t be seeing anyone simply doesn’t register for the 78-year-old. “Don’t forget, as long as we are human, we will want to be decorated—for ourselves; not for other people so much,” he says. “When I wake up in the morning and say, I’m going to wear happy colors today, that is for myself! You can tell immediately when a person is dressing for someone other than themselves. Ugh, you can smell it in seconds!” More from the fashion original at the link here.
