Member of the Week | Jimmy Choo
One of the worlds most iconic shoe brands, Jimmy Choo offers must-have and bespoke pieces providing an empowered sense of glamour and a playfully daring spirit. The height of luxurious footwear.
Founded in 1996, Jimmy Choo encompasses a complete luxury accessories brand. Women’s shoes are the core of the product offer, alongside handbags, small leather goods, scarves, sunglasses, eyewear, belts, fragrance and men’s shoes. Creative Director Sandra Choi’s keen eye for detail, glamour and elegance have resulted in shoes that successfully grace the red carpet and fashion’s front rows, as well as catering to every aspect of the modern woman’s busy lifestyle.
Jimmy Choo introduced their Made-to-Order service in 2014 offering customers a tempting suite of signature styles that can be custom-made in a myriad of colourways, textures and finishes tailored to pertonal style preferences. The Made-to-Order offer has evolved with the introduction of evening bags inviting you to have personalized text engraved on the interior metal plaque featuring a name or a special date. In addition, not only is there the opportunity to choose the colour of your bag but also the finish of the hardware with either silver or gold options.
The tradition of Made-to-Order shoes can be traced back to the roots of the brand and has continued quietly throughout the company’s evolution, to a global luxury fashion brand. Occasionally, by special request, a client would order a special fabrication, an exotic material or unique colour for a special event, most notably on the red carpet, where Jimmy Choo Made-to-Order shoes continue to have a steady presence.
Representing the House signature style, Creative Director Sandra Choi has selected her favourite Jimmy Choo silhouettes for inclusion in the Made-to-Order programme. These shoes are time-honoured iconic designs, continually adored by clients worldwide and perfectly suited for customisation, and include the Anouk, Romy, Lance and Ren in varying heel heights.
Dream shoes become design reality with the stunning offering of material and colour options. Clients may choose from delicate suedes, lustrous satins, sumptuous leathers, glitter, crocodile or exotic snakeskins, and be creative with a palette of colourways. For the last word in personalisation, customers are able to monogram the sole of their shoes with initials or numbers to create an enduring bespoke memento of a special day, moment or gift.
“Throughout the years at Jimmy Choo, we set out to maintain the same level of personalised service and attention to detail as when we were crafting shoes one pair at a time, for one client at a time. Bringing this made-to-order service directly to our customers in our stores allows us to faithfully preserve our heritage of personalisation, and allow every woman to have a bespoke pair of Jimmy Choo shoes and evening bag.” Sandra Choi, Creative Director.
Ideally suited for shoe aficionados looking to build a bespoke wardrobe or for brides planning their wedding shoe wardrobe, the Made-to-Order service combines quintessential skilled Italian Jimmy Choo craftsmanship invested with the luxurious quality of materials used.
The Made-to-Order service is available at select Jimmy Choo stores globally and at www.jimmychoo.com.
