Now we have £100,000 Heels. British jewelry designer Christopher Michael Shellis has handcrafted the Eternal Diamond Stiletto that dazzles with a smattering of Gold Bling. The Stiletto is made entirely from pure gold and diamond and costs a whopping £100,000 per pair.
Each pair of super-luxurious Borgezie stilettos features 2,200 brilliant cut diamonds and pure gold. It took Shellis three years to finish designing the Eternal Diamond Stiletto, and he’s selling the shoes with a 1,000-year guarantee. Christopher Michael Shellis has already received orders from a number of global celebrity fashionistas.
I was wondering who all from India would lap it up. Shilpa Shetty could if she purrs in front of Raj Kundra and so would our Delhi’s socialite Tanisha Mohan. She need not purr also. All she got to do – ‘Rob darling, I must own that Eternal Diamond Stiletto and be the first one to do so in India.’ Guys any other names you can think of? Anu Dewan? Naah…her hubby’s dhanda isn’t doing great. Queenie? Farhad doesn’t have that kind of moolah. Who else???
Just the other day, on Saturday afternoon I walked into the Hermes store at The Oberoi and was rather surprised to see a Birkin on display. I asked the sales staff if the Birkin was just for display or one can buy it. The answer was, “Yes, it’s for selling.” There’s no WAIT LIST for Birkin Bag anymore! I am sure now the snob value of the Birkin will take a dip too. I feel sad for Anu Dewan who painfully collected Birkins in every colour and size I confirmed the news. “It seems that the wait list for the Hermes Birkin Bag is a victim of the recession”, SheFinds reports. When Portero Luxury began advertising Birkins alongside text that read, “The Wait Is Over. Get Yours Now!” the SheFinds editors “called around to Hermes, and found out there is no more silly waiting list–they told us we could walk right in and get one today.”
The cheapest styles still cost Rs. 3Lacs, so it’s still quite the life decision…but impulse shopping just got that much easier.
