Swedish celebrity and shoe lover Pernilla Wahlgren was in London recently for the opening of the new shoe gallery at Selfridges. The biggest shoe department in the world! I had a chat with Pernilla to find out some more about her love for shoes!
Pernilla, we know you had loads of shoes before you went to London. How many pairs do you have in your collection now?
“Well, I haven’t counted them but there are probably a 100 of them. And I bought 5 new shoes at Selfridges..(!), so perhaps there are 105 of them now”?
What did you like most about the new shoe gallery?
“I was impressed that there is something for all wallets, even if you don’t have that much money to spend you can easily find something. But there are of course all the luxury brands as well. And what I especially liked was that you can walk around and look at luxury brands like Louboutin, and still feel comfortable, even if you don’t can afford to buy anything. I don’t always feel comfortable doing that”.
You spent a whole day at Selfridges, but if you only have an hour or so, what should a visitor focus on you think?
“As a shoe addict – don’t miss the shoe gallery, of course. And then I heard they have a fortune teller! I will definitely pay her a visit next time! And then I would suggest visiting the children’s departement, if you have kids…”
Pernilla Wahlgren spent two days in London, and besides spending time at Selfridges she also had time for a fashionistas afternoon tea (my favourite!) – the Prêt-à-Portea at The Berkeley Hotel.
