Frankie Goes to House of Pliner — Best Assignment Ever!
Shoe mogul Donald Pliner knows a fellow dog lover when he meets one. He invited Hollywood Hound Frankie Feldman over for a playdate, and I tagged along to tour his elegant home.
So I’m doing a phone interview with luxury shoe magnate Donald Pliner and his wife Lisa Pliner about the gorgeous Bel Air Crest home they’re about to sell, when we start bonding over our mutual love of pups: they have two Maltese, Sunset and Moonlite and I have gregarious Hollywood Hound Frankie Feldman.
We decide that the three fluff balls should get together for a good romp, and before we know it, we’re setting a date. Frankie and I were tres excited, of course, but nothing could have prepared us for the glory and wonder we found behind those massive front doors.
The artwork! The skulls! The horns! The pigs! The pink highlighted pups! But most of all, the shoes! Donald and Lisa Pliner are creative soles, I mean souls, and their living space is a wild fantasy of color, style, and whimsy.
It was easy to see why it didn’t take long to find a buyer for their 7,603-square-foot home in the gated community on the West Side.
