FANTASY FOOTWORK: Harrods and its partner Kurt Geiger plan to unveil a limited-edition collection of “fantasy shoes” by brands including Tom Ford, Jimmy Choo and Charlotte Olympia. The Step Out of the Ordinary collection will launch in early March at Harrods Shoe Heaven on the store’s fifth floor.
The brands have each recreated a signature style using materials such as precious skins or fine jewels. Harrods said the collection will be “extremely limited-edition” with only a small number of each style available.
Brands taking part include Casadei, Charlotte Olympia, Christian Louboutin, Dolce & Gabbana, Gianvito Rossi, Gucci, Prada, Roger Vivier, Rene Caovilla, Stuart Weitzman and Tom Ford.
Casadei has created a blade stiletto in crocodile while Charlotte Olympia will make over its Kitty flats with Swarovski crystals. Prada has created a new paisley embellished style inspired by their spring/summer collection and Tod’s has added pearls to its Gommino loafers.
