New Louboutin Boutique in Harrods London
The new boutique of the famous shoemaker Christian Louboutin in +Harrods gives you a strange yet interesting experience. It has an Inception atmosphere, is London inside London. Maybe you'll find Leonardo di Caprio in it?
Inspiratied by the city that houses this brand new boutique, the designer Lee Broom has included elements that resemble some of the most iconic landmarks of London. The white fanned archway entrance that works as the shop’s display, inspired by the Covent Garden Opera House, will take you through a space with several white street lights acting as stands for the shoes displayed, facing a giant etched glass clock that illuminates the place, paying homage to the emblematic Big Ben. There also some references to the original tiled walls of London’s Underground, which are used to display some of the brand’s latest collections.
Behind an arched mirror you will also find an intimate private room, including a low seated lounge area and a “dramatic red tiled wall” – a signature colour for monsieur Louboutin and his brand. In the same space, the warm wood cabinet shelves create a “cabinet of curiosity effect” and display a selection of exceptional archive pieces from Louboutin’s twenty year career, illuminated by Broom’s celebrated, handmade Crystal Bulbs. The space also features a special orders service and a VIP room, available by appointment. Overall, it is quite amazing how Broom has managed to encapsulate Louboutin’s theatrical style whilst giving the space a British twist.
