No matter who are you or where you may be spending your social-distancing time, the current global health crisis can take its toll on everyone's mental health in myriad ways. This is something iconic shoe designer Manolo Blahnik had in mind as he released his latest initiative, a collection of coloring pages for shoe lovers everywhere.

Smile The Art of Colouring takes some of Blahnik's most fantastical and beautiful designs and shares the creative power with anyone who could use a little more beauty in their lives these days.
As the brand shared, the footwear sketches have been removed of color, are ready to be reimagined in any hues you can dream up, and are intended to be "enjoyed from home in the hope of providing inspiration and spreading positivity in this time of isolation."




The silhouettes on the coloring pages include some of the brand's most memorable and detail-rich designs, such as the Margolina slingbacks covered in daisies and the leaf-adorned Acanthus, named for the plant that's indigenous to the Canary Islands where Blahnik grew up.

The Art of Colouring is also being released in partnership with Mental Health Foundation, a UK organization that works to help the public "understand, protect, and sustain their mental health," according to its site.

Along with the easy-to-download coloring pages, Blahnik's Smile site also links directly to resources from MHF to help address mental health during the coronavirus pandemic, such as for those dealing with financial hardship or taking care of children at home.
