Have you seen the most beautiful shoes of 2011? Here they are, Marlene and Faye.
As Carrie chases after a Staten Island ferry, she yells, "I lost my Choo!" and we get a perfect shot of the gorgeous, lilac Jimmy Choo open toe slingbacks with feather trim at toe. Remember the scene? The iconic shoe, Feather, inspired the birth of Marlene, which features couture elements such as hand-applied peacock blue feathers and crystals. Watch Tamara Mellon introduces them here.
Faye is derived from Murial. The original shoes featured a gold embellished flower and now has been reimagined in zebra-print pony and topped with a flouncy red-silk corsage flower. They are too perfect to be true.
ICONS is a capsule collection of shoes inspired by the most significant creations from the company’s archives. These modern interpretations of classic designs represent the iconic glamour of Jimmy Choo today. Each shoe from the ICONS collection will be packaged in a special commemorative box that will include a card explaining the heritage of the item. Ten percent of the net sales of ICONS shoes will be donated to the Jimmy Choo Foundation, a charitable trust that will be chaired by Jimmy Choo Founder and Chief Creative Officer, Tamara Mellon OBE.
A commemorative coffee table book, entitled JIMMY CHOO XV highlights these 15 iconic archival shoes and anthologizes their creation through design sketches, editorial imagery, paparazzi shots and house photography. The release of the Icons collection and the JIMMY CHOO XV are a part of the year-long celebration of the brand’s 15th Anniversary.
