Highlights from The Guardian's one-on-one with Manoholo Blahnik:
"For me, new restrictions in hand and cabin baggage are ideal. I hate to travel with stuff. I just have my drawings in my hand in a little roll I carry on to the plane and the day they question that, well!"
"The platform [shoe] is the Frankenstein of footwear."
"Cheap shoes? I love flip-flops. I don't wear them now because a few years ago, I knocked my big toe hard and I said 'Never again!' But I do like them on a well-kept foot."
