Jimmy Choo invites Paris Haute Couture to a visual feast
The idea for the collection was to recreate the feeling of a child’s delight experiencing the irresistible delights on offer in a pick-‘n’-mix sweet shop. To set the scene, Sandra Choi unveiled the collection in Paris during the Haute Couture shows in July with a display that took the form of a spectacular crystal banquet. Sparkling treats were laid out in glorious profusion across the banqueting table, including goblets and flutes filled with crystals, gleaming seafood platters, faux glistening turkeys, artificial fruit and imitation macaroons in mouth-watering jewel colors, all encrusted with shimmering Swarovski crystals. At each setting was a charger plate bearing a shoe or a clutch including the aptly named CANDY clutch featuring bon mots such as ‘I WANT CHOO’, ‘ONLY CHOO’ and ‘CHOOs ME’. Delicious! Please may we have second helpings?
