It doesn’t surprise us that a man famous for his footwear would own a lot of shoes.
But Manolo Blahnik's collection is BEYOND mind-blowing!!!!
He recently revealed to Vanity Fair that 25,000 - 30,000 PAIRS of Manolo prototypes (!!!!!!) occupy his two adjoining houses in Bath, England!
The 70-year-old said:
"I don’t live in a house. I live in a shoe museum! ‘Shoe mausoleum’ would be better! I lost about 300 in a flood in London. But it’s O.K. I saved some of them."
Color us jealous and throw us a shoe party!
Blahnik has officially solidified his reputation in our hearts as the Willy Wonka of footwear!!! We're certain Anna Wintour would agree, since she only ever wears his shoes anyway.
As they say, you can never have too much of an
good great AH-Mazing thing!!
