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