Lee Broom designs new Christian Louboutin boutique in Harrods
London-based product and interior designer, Lee Broom, has designed the new Christian Louboutin boutique for luxury London department store Harrods.
The Louboutin store is housed within Harrods’ eveningwear department, and according to Broom, the designs are inspired by the city of London, in which the store is located.
Broom’s concept captures the spirit of Christian Louboutin whilst giving the space a quintessentially British twist. The store celebrates Louboutin’s theatricality, offering the customer a unique shopping experience.
Famous buildings such as the fanned archway entrance of the Covent Garden Opera House, to the clockface of Big Ben and the tiled mosaics of the London Underground have been reinterpreted.
Broom, who studied fashion at Central Saint Martins, said: “It has been an honour to design the new store for Christian Louboutin in Harrods. I have always been a huge admirer of his work and I am delighted to be designing this space in one of the most famous department stores in the world. I have enjoyed drawing on my fashion background and creating a magical space that has a real sense of drama and escapism.”
The shop front is reminiscent of a stage set design, creating a feeling of suspended reality. The sense of drama continues inside as Louboutin’s signature style is seen through the use of the classic red carpet and beautiful arched niches in which the shoe collections are presented. Whilst creating a contemporary space, Broom draws on the traditional architecture of Harrods, keeping the moulded staccato detailed ceiling which immediately gives the store a sense of grandeur.
The Christian Louboutin Boutique is located on the first floor of Harrods department store.
