Harrods Opens ‘Shoe Heaven’

Harrods-Shoe-Heaven-600x450

The London luxury department store has unveiled a brand new footwear department, named Shoe Heaven.

The new area is located suitably high-up, on the fifth floor of the HARRODS store in London’s smart Knightsbridge district.

Pushing 42,000 sq ft, the space contains 17 footwear boutiques with collections from over 50 of the biggest luxury brands including Christian Dior, Chanel, Christian Louboutin, Valentino, Manolo Blahnik and Louis Vuitton.

Shoes are “becoming an ever increasingly important part of the way a woman dresses, and indeed a key part of our business,” explained Helen Davids of Harrods; “the space will be more ‘Penthouse’ and less ‘Shoe Floor,’” she added, in what is one of the store’s biggest rennovations to date.

The luxe marble-floored space was designed by the late David Collins, the celebrated London interior designer who died last summer.

Alongside the shoes and the displays, the space also contains velvet banquet seating and private shopping suites, with staff on hand to provide an experience that is “more five-star hotel than shoe department.”

Alexander Wang for h&m: first look

Alexander-Wang-boxing-gloves-600x421

On Monday H&M decided to reveal the first image from the WANG x H&M collection on Twitter, showing a keychain with miniature boxing gloves.

Could this be an indication of a sports theme for the new line? Or is it just a detail without any particular link to the rest of the collection?

Eager to feast their eyes on the collection in stores a few months from now, fashion fans are already exchanging their theories on Twitter. To while away the hours before the launch, one could always think about what would go well with this little keychain…

The capsule collection of women’s and men’s pieces will be available in 250 H&M stores worldwide and online, from November 6, 2014.

Three extends free roaming to France and four other countries

3 mobile

Not content with offering free roaming to customers travelling in the US and other far-away locales, Three has extended its Feel At Home service to five countries a little closer to home. From July 1st, Three customers can enjoy data, text and calls at no extra charge when they visit France, Switzerland, Israel, Finland or Norway. That takes the operator’s total tally up to 16 countries and throws shade on rival roaming plans, which have come down in price but still require customers to add travel bolt-ons to their existing tariff. Calls to non-UK numbers will incur a charge but Three makes Feel At Home available to anyone on its network — perfect for uploading Instagram selfies from the beach or sharing Vines by the side of the pool.

Tom Ford to launch sneakers

Tom-Ford-sneakers-600x302

TOM FORD has created his first ever line of sneakers, which come in high and low-top versions and are set to arrive in stores in the fall.

There’s a choice of seven leather shades and five velvet colors, with all the models featuring rubber soles in white. Each shoe is handmade in Italy, produced with an artisan process that requires ten days of ‘resting’ for the leather while it’s shaped, as well as three days of hand polishing.

Prices range from $690 for the velvet low-tops up to to $990 for the leather high-tops and the shoes will hit Tom Ford’s American boutiques in New York, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Chicago and Dallas as well as the London and Milan stores in Europe.

You can currently browse the sneakers on the Tom Ford website, but you’ll have to wait until later in the year to buy them.
