Jimmy Choo Special
We see it regularly, a lot of the fashion being manufactured today is totally unwearable and impractical for the normal glam chiq on the go – but Jimmy Choo designs are quite the opposite. What we particularly love about the label is the rare combination of the very simple, super elegant and amazing quality that goes into the products. The company was launched in 1996 by the British Vogue editor Tamara Mellon and her partner in crime, the very skilled craftsman, and Malaysian born couture shoe maker Jimmy Choo. Jimmy Choo himself is not directly involved in the shoe design these days, but assigned Sandra Choi as Creative Director since the launch. The company specialize in shoes, bags and purses/envelope bags. The company now have their own shops in London, New York, Las Vegas, Beverley Hills, Dallas, Orlando, Moscow, Kuwait, Hong Kong and Korea. There are also, another eighty retail outlets globally. Stockholmers can get hold of Jimmy Choo at Marzio. The Jimmy Choo collection can also be purchased over the internet at sites such as - Net-a-Porter and Gina Shoes. Shop Copper Penny are listed as one of the online retailers, and although we haven’t found any Jimmy Choo products yet, it may still be worth a visit anyway.
