Marimekko inspired Manolos

Manolo Blahnik's Spring/Summer 2008 Collection has some cute Mary Jane Slingbacks. Blahnik has used Marimekko’s patterns Bonbon and Mini-Unikko (which is the pattern shown) in his forthcoming collection.

I'm a little surprised the description of the shoes on Neiman's site doesn't mention that they are a Merimekko pattern?

Late last year Dolce and Gabbane produced a dress (and shoes) that looks almost exactly like this Marimekko pattern, but gave them no credit. Pretty strange. I don't know if anything happened about it - I haven't seen any updates on the web.
