In September, architect Jamie Forbert will unveil what shoe lovers across the world could only dream of: a shoe salon that will apparently be larger than the first floor of the Tate Modern in London. Talk about a shoe-gasm. This will be the store’s largest endeavor since being bought by the Westons in 2003 for £628 million (approximately $963 million U.S.).
Vogue UK reports that the shoe store will feature exclusive designs from favorite shoe designers like Givenchy, Chloe, Stella McCartney, Rodarte, and Alejandro Ingelmo. There will be six different shoe salons and ten separate brand specific boutiques.
I die. Try and estimate how many hours it would take to truly delve into the entirety of the shoe salon. The salon, which in my mind is more like a museum than a store, would take hours, if not days, to get through. Hours and days well worth spent.
