Magic Shoes

These glow-in-the-dark Adidas trainers have wings so that you will float above the marble floors of Ibizan clubs like the great god Hermes. But the real magic is how they came be in the possession of artist F.P.

One night, F.P. was cycling past mountains of garbage on a busy shopping street when he noticed an Adidas carrier bag containing two shoe boxes. A collector of the better class of bag, he slung it onto the back of his bike and went home. It was only when he arrived that he checked the boxes and discovered they contained not only Pan's clubbing shoes but also a pair of high tops covered in girlie pink sequins.

The moral of this story is that F.P. should consider a career change. Because if he were to opt for archeology, he would surely find the lost city of Atlantis!

These shoes were designed by Jeremy Scott and retail for approximately €450.

The Poetic Spook

This is James Jesus Angleton who wrote poetry in his youth before joining the CIA. He famously remarked that whereas a common thug could kill a person, it took the talents of an intelligence service to make a murder appear to be a suicide. Not surprisingly, in his wake, quite a few suspected "moles" topped themselves.

Hotel as Magic Theatre of Desire

Ladies, imagine yourself daintily ascending those stairs in your red-soled Louboutins and heading for an illicit rendez-vous...
