Last night saw Jimmy Choo and mytheresa.com host a star-studded intimate dinner at The Garden Museum, London to celebrate the launch of their exclusive Jimmy Choo x mytheresa.com ‘Glitter’ collection. A natural pairing, the Munich-based online retailer, known for its luxury fashion offering and one of the world’s leading footwear brands, Jimmy Choo will make the collection available from tomorrow on mytheresa.com.
Set in a wild flower meadow installation complete with foxgloves, bluebells, poppies and cow parsley, the modern stately dinner was a nod to The Chelsea Flower Show that is currently taking place in the city. Pierre Denis, CEO and Sandra Choi, Creative Director of Jimmy Choo hosted the dinner along with Michael Kliger, President of mytheresa.com. Among the guests was royalty, in the form of Princess Eugene of York, who all dined on Michelin-starred seasonal food brought to them by The Clove Club. The botanical parellels did not stop there, with a variety of bespoke cocktails from English Meadow Sours to Flowers at Midnight keeping the VIPs hydrated all evening, while Mimi Xu provided the music post dinner.
“Gardening is my secret love, my secret life,” said Sandra Choi, as she gazed around the dinner venue, a medieval church where cow parsley, foxglove, pansies and daisies sprouted from the center of mile-long tables and from dirt-filled boxes lining the stone walls and floor. The church looked as if it was bathed in sunset — even into late evening — thanks to a cleverly placed parabolic light.
“I love a wildflower garden — it takes just as much nurturing as a cultivated one and when it comes together it makes a picture,” added Choi, who welcomed guests including Princess Eugenie, Amber Le Bon, Mary Charteris, Robbie Furze, Alice Naylor-Leyland, Jack Guinness, Violet Manners, Portia Freeman, Polly Morgan and Princess Elisabeth von Thurn und Taxis.
All of this was to honor the Jimmy Choo ‘Glitter’ capsule collection; a collection that signifies a star-specked sky with gradient glitter from antique gold merging into dark anthracite blue. An exclusive line, it can only be found at mytheresa.com.
At dinner, guests dined on vegetarian selections including asparagus, rhubarb, broad beans and morels from the Michelin-starred Clove Club. The event unfolded at The Garden Museum, part of Lambeth Palace in London, the official English residence of the Archbishop of Canterbury.
Comprising of both pumps and flats, as well as clutches to match, this romantic line will be a sure fire hit for all the weddings and events this summer. The pointed and slender toed ‘Romy’ pump in 100mm provides an opulent statement heel and is also available in a 85mm heel height.
For a contemporary range, Creative Director Choi has included flats in the line. The favorite being the ‘Gala’, a loafer-style pointed ballerina, which features a grosgrain bow at the front for ladylike appeal. Designed to be worn day to night, it is undoubtedly a decadent and glamorous flat.
To complete the capsule collection there is the addition of two hard-cased clutch bags in the form of the on-trend, boxy style ‘Celeste’ and the classic cylindrical ‘Trinket’ clutch. Thoroughly in keeping with the footwear, both are dusted in the ombre effect glitter and are large enough to stylishly fit all the necessities.
The Jimmy Choo “Glitter” collection is available exclusively at mytheresa.com from the 25th of May 2017 onwards.
