Jimmy Choo’s Made-to-Order Service

Jimmy Choo's Made-to-Order Service

I jumped at the chance when Jimmy Choo asked me to create my perfect Choo using their Made-to-Order service.

Making my selection from one of their – Anouk, Lance, Xenia and Tite – signature ranges, I could then customise my shoe from a myriad of colourways, textures and finishes tailored to my personal style preferences.

You’ll not be surprised to see that I selected the celebrity favourite, the ‘Lang’ from the ‘Lance’ family in my favourite hue, blue.

For an extra personal touch, the next step was to monogram my shoe, so I chose my initials CJK.

Ten weeks later, I was excited to receive my shoes, just in time for spring sandal weather.

This service is being offered to us all, but this tradition of made-to-order shoes has grown from the occasional special request from a client for a special event, to the red carpet, where Jimmy Choo made to order shoes continue to have a steady presence.

Brides planning their wedding shoe wardrobe can incorporate something new into their look with this Made-to-Order service, with a range of fun monograms which can also include a love heart.

Jimmy Choo’s Made-to-Order service is available at select Jimmy Choo stores globally and JimmyChoo.com US and JimmyChoo.com.

My Jimmy Choo shoes were worn with a Topshop sleeveless D-ring duster.

Celebrities Love…Jimmy Choo ‘Marlin’ Boots

Celebrities Love Jimmy Choo 'Marlin' Boots

We know the celebrity set is practically addicted to a skyscraper heel. After all, one of the most ubiquitous shoes seen recently is Stuart Weitzman’s ‘Nudist’ sandals. But, alas, even the starlets cannot survive on stilettos alone.

Enter the Jimmy Choo ‘Marlin’ boot.

It’s the season’s latest style from the CHOO.08 collection of more casual, every-day footwear that still retains the same glam, cool-girl edge for which Jimmy Choo is known.

The black textured leather and spotted snakeskin version of the ankle boots are the epitome of CHOO.08’s laidback yet alluring approach that creative director Sandra Choi envisioned with the collection.

Equipped with a pointy toe and multiple buckles, the ‘Marlins’ boast a retro rock-punk edge that’s classic yet just slightly—delightfully—rebellious.

Amber Heard, Jamie Chung and January Jones are but a few of the stylish lovelies who have been spotted in the shoes, each showing off just how much bold attitude these booties bring.

While they added edge to Amber’s off-duty jacket-and-skinny-pants, the pair couldn’t have provided a more directional, yet sophisticated spin on Jamie’s leather and lace ensemble. And January was thoroughly street-chic in her white message T-shirt, flared denim and cat-eye shades, using her booties to tie together the best of both vintage and modern worlds.

Do the ‘Marlins’ have you hooked?
