A Manolo for Your Head

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

It's a Manolo you can wear on your head—courtesy of milliner Stephen Jones. Catwalk Queen reports: "Inspired by Elsa Schiaparelli's famous surrealist hats, the 'shoe hat' is based on Blahnik's pump, a top hat trim line and Liberty print lining." The headpiece is on auction from today at the Liberty of London eBay page—currently, bids are only around $30! Liberty says: "Despite being friends for thirty years this is the first time the two have worked together, and with great success." C'mon, who wants to wear a Manolo on their head? We're all in.
