Legendary shoemaker Manolo Blahnik is the latest designer to team up with print-happy Liberty Of London and the first sketches from the collaboration have just been revealed, including a preview of a black tulle sandal with miniature leather Gallica roses.

Blahnik used three prints from the Liberty archives (dating back to the 19th century, although Blahnik says they’re “so modern, you’d die,”) to inspire the collection, which will include footwear, of course, as well as scarves, notebooks, candles, rain boots and more.

The collaboration, which launches in September (on Fashion’s Night Out, no less), will begin with the “World Of Manolo,” an in-store boutique at Liberty’s London store that will remain open for three months. To finish off the collaboration, Blahnik will curate Liberty over the Christmas period and give the store an “old-fashioned, English” feel.
