Fancy getting your feet in this pair of Kylie Minogue’s sequined Moschino wedges, Denise Van Outen’s gold courts or Rod Stewart’s glam-rock Adidas, left? Cancer charity Macmillan is auctioning these and more at its In Their Shoes Ball – and you can get a glimpse of the goods at the Burlington Arcade.
Shopping in the historic arcade always feels so glamorously old London: a stone’s throw from Fortnum & Mason and the Ritz, the arcade is where InStylers pick up delicious pastel-hued macarons from Ladurée, I-Capture-the-Castle-esque scent from Penhaligon’s and lovely leather things from Pickett.
In other words, it’s a fairy-tale shopping paradise. This year, between 10 and 18 November, it’s hosting a “shoe trail” of star footwear to preview the goods up for auction at the annual In Their Shoes ball.
