For the first time since Jimmy Choo introduced its bespoke service in Europe last year, it’s now offering the bridal customization service to Filipino brides.
The made-to-order bridal shoes service allows the bride to choose the style, the material and color, as well as personalize her pair with her monogram or a date plaque to commemorate her wedding day.
The London-born Jimmy Choo brand has a vast selection of wedding styles, from flat sandals for beach weddings and taller brides, as well as the sexier high-heeled stilettos and classic pumps, and in an array of wedding-appropriate shades—white, off-white, ivory, champagne, silver, gold, glitter—and fabrications—suede, lace, satin, calf and kid leather, as well as exotic skins like crocodile and snake.
But for the bespoke bridal service, there are only five styles to choose from: the Anouk, a pointy pump with 4.7” spike heels; the Abel, also a pointy pump with a slightly shorter heel at 3.9”; the Lance, a tall, sexy stiletto with delicate crisscrossing straps; the Luna, a classic peep-toe pump with low platform; and the Cosmic, a round-toe pump with a .98” platform and 4.5” heels.
The base style, usually of satin, costs from P49,500 to a high of P400,000 for the exotic skins.
The service, according to Stores Specialists Inc., the exclusive local distributor of Jimmy Choo in the Philippines, is being offered not just to brides, but also to their mothers and the bridal entourage.
If you’re set to wed in December, however, it may be a bit late as orders take four to six months to deliver. All shoes are made in Italy.
Brides can place their orders at Jimmy Choo in Shangri-La Plaza Mall East Wing and Rustan’s Makati.
