Netflix’s “Bling Empire” Has a Shoe Wall That Would Make Carrie Bradshaw Jealous
Reality TV lovers (aka me, myself, and I) rejoiced when “Bling Empire” hit Netflix earlier this month. Yes, there’s Bachelor Nation, and yes, you can always re-watch “Selling Sunset,” but to have a never-watched drama-filled show with new characters, plot twists, and ridiculously extravagant homes? That’s a luxury, especially in the days of delayed production.
Speaking of luxury, there’s no lack of that in this series following the wealthy Asian and Asian American community in L.A. But among the many multi-million dollar mansions that splashed the screen across the season, one interior detail in particular caught my attention — a LED-lit shoe wall (yes, wall) that stands 10 shelves tall and has zero room for more.
No, this isn’t found in a store frequently shopped by the cast, but inside Kane Lim’s living room, conveniently located near his couch so you can just sit and stare at all its glory.
Lim is one of the main cast members in “Bling Empire” who came from Singapore to the U.S. to attend school. Lim’s father is a billionaire, and according to Women’s Weekly, Lim started investing in stocks and fashion at a young age that has led him to his own financial success — and this impressive shoe collection. And if you’re wondering just how impressive, it’s estimated to be worth $300K, according to WWD.
You can’t look at Lim’s wall and not think of Carrie Bradshaw and Sarah Jessica Parker. Both the woman and the character love shoes, and both have the organizing solutions to back that up (Parker’s SJP shoe store doesn’t mess when it comes to presentation).
With the recent news of the “Sex and the City” reboot coming out, I couldn’t help but wonder (sorry)… how incredible would it be to see Bradshaw’s jaw-dropped reaction to Lim’s wall? Although there aren’t any Manolo Blahniks in sight, but I’m sure that can be arranged.
