LONDON — From the gold foil ceilings chosen by Tamara Mellon to the trompe l’oeil chandelier courtesy of Christian Louboutin to the bespoke pieces by the American artist Rob Wynne, the new, 35,000-square-foot shoe hall at Selfridges is an elaborate salute to the world of footwear.
On Thursday, the London store unveiled its biggest investment to date: the multimillion-pound refurbishment of its second-floor footwear department, known as the Shoe Galleries, which stocks 120 brands from Gucci, Tod’s and Chanel to Ugg, Havaianas and Topshop. It’s the biggest shoe department in the world, according to Selfridges, and about 40 percent larger than the store’s original footwear space.
