The Shoe Tub!

Manolo says, from the Manolo dear internet friend, the famous and gifted writer person, Linda Grant, comes news of this...

The tubs cost up to £17,000 and mimic women’s high heels.

They are built for the user to recline into, with their feet at the toe end of the shoe and their towards the heel.

Water trickles from a jet at the heel of the shoe for hair washing, while the plug is situated down in the toe end.

One of the designs, by Italian makers SICIS, is a 5ft platform heel.

The baths are all decorated in an elaborate glass mosaic style, making them resemble a disco glitter ball.

One features a shimmering bow amid different shades of pink and rose. Another option to choose from is a sparkling silver tub adorned with blue flowers.

One of the firm’s tubs, designed by Massimiliano Della Monaca, was styled on a pair of heels worn by the doll Barbie, who celebrates her 50th birthday this year.

High-heeled Barbie Shoe, Glitter Disco Ball, Bath Tubs! Truly, we have achieved the sort of harmonic convergence of fabulosity.
