While there might be a few names in the shoe realm, nothing quite resonates with the shoe aficionado as well as Jimmy Choo. Once a humble shoemaker to the bespoke loving jet setters – Lady Diana, amongst others – based in London’s East End, Jimmy Choo has since become the shoemaker to the stars. Completing their dazzling outfits that rock each and every awards season, nothing says, “step in to glamour” better than Jimmy Choo. As an A-list must-have, the shoes and clutches are a brilliant fit for every frock, figure, and flair. Led by Creative Director Sandra Choi since ’96, this prestigious design house has asserted itself into the lives of celebrities and our hearts. With designs that are truly worthy of the Oscar’s red carpet, a fabulous after-party or a fashionable street style look, Jimmy Choo always provides you with a chance to put your best foot forward.
A pioneer of sorts, Jimmy Choo strives to provide its clientele – celebrity or not – the best they can offer. Skilled Italian craftsmanship and fine leathers combine to create a shoe fit for every occasion and lifestyle. With a resurgence in all things retro, Jimmy Choo have gone back to their roots by introducing the Made-To-Order service. Based on their 247 collection of signature styles, customers now have the opportunity to create the perfect pair for any occasion, let alone the perfect ‘Choo’ for that special occasion. Customizing a shoe according to your bridal gown? No problem. Thinking of wearing glamorous sandals for a summer night’s gala? Never an issue. Bespokivity at its finest – this collection serves as the building block for an entirely customized wardrobe. The perfect embodiment of chic and well suited for every shoe aficionado. Chosen exclusively by Sandra Choi, your options are coming in from the God Mother of beautifully crafted shoes.
The 247 collection contains a plethora of elusive suedes, radiant satins, and supple leathers alongside glitter and exotic skins. Not to mention the color options for both the shoe’s body and the sole itself. Build your own shoe and live the life of a designer by creating your perfect pair.
If inspiration is what you seek, look no further than the mystical – and iconic – glass slipper. A truly princess-worthy design, Lilly James – Cinderella – walked the red carpet in her character’s namesake shoe to the premier of the film. Jimmy Choo – borrowing from their 247 collection – fashioned a fitting glass slipper for Cinderella to wear to the ball dubbed simply as The Cinderella Shoe. Jimmy Choo for Cinderella caused a stir on the red carpet and will be our inspiration with the Made-To-Order service. Because who wouldn’t want to feel like a princess?
