Are you a shoe girl or is the latest bag at the top of your lust list? On your big day you may have to switch camps because it's all about the dress (of course!) and a pair of stunning shoes. After all, who needs a clutch with emergency supplies when you have a flock of bridesmaids to tend to any make-up mishaps?
After two years of design by David Collins Studio and construction, Harrods has revealed its latest addition; the largest high-end shoe department in the world, a.k.a. Shoe Heaven.
Brides-to-be who love gorgeous shoes will be weak at the knees as they take in the 42,000sq ft space that features seventeen shoe boutiques, including Chanel and Prada. Crossing over to the displays of shoes from the lavish entrance, it turns out heaven is paved with marble and hand-knotted carpets - the perfect mix of terrain to test out heels to ensure they're aisle-appropriate! Also kitted out with plush velvety sofas, the sumptuous surroundings add to the occasion of making such an important purchase.
From your mum's heels that you first shuffled around in playing dress-up as a kid to the pair you donned for your 18th birthday, shoes become mementos of treasured moments. Which pair will you pick to wear as you walk down the aisle? To pull some moves in for your first dance? With 100,000 pairs on show, from Acne to Zanotti KG, you might just find The Ones here.
But if you want to narrow down the choice, pick from the capsule collection which heralds the opening of the department. It's even themed 'Silver Linings,' alluding to the heavenly connotation of clouds. Dreamy! We want the Christian Louboutin beauties the lady on the sing has nabbed… And silver is the perfect go-with-anything shade that'll add a touch of shimmer to your big day look and make a fabulous addition to your shoe wardrobe for many evenings to come.
Harrods Shoe Heaven is located on the Fifth Floor at Harrods, Brompton Road, Knightsbridge, London, SW1
