Boutique of the Month: Harrods

Harrods...its name preceeds it. Long known for getting anything a client desires, including an elephant, Harrods exudes opulance and customer service. With an enormous "Food Court" that looks more like an ecceletic, luxurious bazaar, Lingeristas don't have to have a sultan's bank account to shop at Harrods...although it'd be more fun if you did.

Located in the Knightsbridge section of London, shopping at Harrods is a sensory event to be experienced. You're assured to be amazed, whether you're visiting the lingerie section, the memorial to Princess Diana, one of their special events, simply shopping, or the countless well-thought out nooks that make Harrods unique.

The lingerie department carries the following luxurious, high-quality brands that's sure to make you want to splurge:
  • Donna Karan
  • Princess Tam Tam
  • Elle Macpherson
  • Freya
  • Chantelle
  • Eco-Boudoir
  • Dolce & Gabbana Intimo

The lingerie above are both by Princess Tam Tam and can be purchased online at Harrods. The Adorable Triangle Bra (above left) in gold and black is £33.00 and matching Adorable Bikini Brief is £23.00. The Adorable Underwire Bra (above right) in coral and gold is £38.00 and Adorable Bikini Brief is £23.00.

It's always an event going to Harrods so why not visit one while you're there...

12 noon - 5pm
Soft Accessories, Ground floor

Harrods "is delighted to invite you to (its) annual Wolford fashion event - an exclusive opportunity to preview and purchase Wolford’s new luxurious collection of hosiery, bodywear and fashion pieces. Plus, when you spend £75 or more on the Wolford collection, you will receive an exclusive pair of Wolford Individual 10 Back Seam tights in black. There’s no need to book for this event: simply turn up and enjoy the show! For further information, please contact Anne-Marie Kruk on 020 7225 5946."

If you want a bit more adventure, stop by during Harrods' Be Apart of the Action event highlighting Quantum of Solace. Visit Harrods "Knightsbridge store until January 2009 to view the very same Sunseeker speedboat (exhibited until 22nd November 2008) and Aston Martin DBS driven by Bond in Quantum of Solace, on display in our Brompton Road windows. The Aston Martin DBS is one of only five used in the film worldwide.

Plus, get an up-close peek at the Tom Ford suit and black Prada dress worn by Daniel Craig and Olga Kurylenko, modelled as part of this unique window display. A limited number of replica versions of these garments are on sale exclusively at Harrods."

If you can swing it, I highly recommend visiting Harrods. It's definitely a sensory-oriented experience; go there hungry and with time on your hands. Your festive excursion will only be enhanced if you pop into the aperitif section to sample various homemade alcohols. During the holidays, Lingeristas, this is one shopping trip that will get you Celebrating Your Inner Eve in style!
