- Marilyn shoes
In this particular case, these shoes were not made for walking. A pair of giant shoes (1,5 meters tall and 4,3 meters wides) meticulously constructed out of hundreds of high-shine stainless steel pots and lids, they were auctioned this year at Christie for 574.000€ (so I don’t think I’ll be having one of these anytime soon). Though there are a few copies of the shoes (glamorously named Dorothy, Cinderella, Priscilla and Carmen Miranda), this is the only pair of the series (one shoe would be about 280.000€, so I still don’t think I’ll be having even a single shoe). I saw one of them recently at Joana Vasconcelos retrospect at CCB and that’s one hell of a shoe!
