I had the immense pleasure of visiting the Jimmy Choo HQ in Kensington, London last week for their bi-annual press day. On show was their new up and coming Cruise collection available now (from £195) which I have to say is looking absolutely gorgeous. There are a few stunning pairs which will no doubt be gracing our pages in the up and coming issues. My all time favourite is the 'Quinze' in nude suede, bejewelled from ankle to toe with a cute zip up the back (£1,095). In the bridal collection there is a strong lace trend worked into the trade mark Jimmy Choo styles - medium platforms, strappy heels, peep toe courts etc in ivories and whites. Also available are the classic simpler styles in elegant satins and silks (from £395-£575).
I am particularly loving their accessories in the Cruise collection - look out for a beautiful star patterned cashmere scarf in creams and silver (£395) from their great cashmere scarf collection (from £195) and cute studded wallets and purses. Indeed the card holders (£165) and key rings (from £95) which come in black and browns are perfect Grooms gifts for those trend influenced, metro sexual men out there. I know they are on the increase.........
My highlight of my mini JC HQ tour was of course popping into Tamara's office. Sadly she wasn't there for a gossip however it was nice to have a peek! I can tell you it's oh so swish in there - no surprise then that she's full of such ultra glam inspired creations which just seem to keep on coming season after season.
