Past modern and bohemian chic style are the essence of the Manas 2016 spring/summer collection, interpreted for a woman with a dynamic and practical spirit.

From masculine lace-ups to two-tone designs, colours and forms tend towards a footwear range with classic lines. This is the theme of Past Modern by MANAS. The link to the past is also expressed through details, like fringes, buckles and soles with an urban attitude, while the colour palette ranges from white to natural leather hues. The second inspiration of the season are the colours and materials in Bohemian Chic style, presented in a modern key with meticulous attention to detail and form, evoking a feel of a summer filled with colour, music festivals and exotic holidays. Suede, in shades of ochre, burnt brown and dark red, is combined with cord and natural cord soles. Height oscillates between wedges, wide heels and flats, coordinated with python-effect prints and suede fringes for an alluring summer look. Meanwhile, the Seventies influence comes alive in the Lea Foscati collection, with extremely feminine accents, brightened by nude, white and grey tones. Calf and patent leather create striking chromatic effects, while buckles recall the styles of the past; all revisited with the characteristic, contemporary imprint of the brand. And, with the combination of leather, mesh, Lycra, and thermoformed relief accents, there’s no lack of sports-chic inspiration either. The ‘black out’ style is presented across both ranges, reinforcing the everyday total black models, as well as the more glamourous evening designs. Manas 1 Manas 2 Manas 3 Manas 4 Manas 5 Manas 6
