LONDON — Harrods will unveil its largest project to date this week, a 42,000-square-foot footwear haven designed by David Collins Studio with the feel of a sumptuous hotel suite. Harrods Shoe Heaven will open on Friday on the store’s fifth floor, the latest project in an ongoing refurbishment of the store’s fashion and accessories floors.
The area, a mix of owned space and concessions, will house 17 boutiques from names including Manolo Blahnik, Christian Louboutin, Chanel, Christian Dior, Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Prada and Valentino. Other brands including Nicholas Kirkwood, Charlotte Olympia, Sophia Webster, Balenciaga, Rupert Sanderson and Isabel Marant will be displayed in curated rotundas distributed around the hall.
