In the beating heart of Venice, don't miss the first standalone Jimmy Choo boutique, dedicated to women's accessories
If diamonds are a girl's best friend, then shoes are definitely her favourite travel companions. The go-to address in Venice for luxury accessories is San Marco 1289, where renowned designer Jimmy Choo has opened a standalone boutique. The boutique, which was designed by the Christian Lahoude Studio of New York, features a perfect blend of luxury and Venetian tradition, where each detail has been meticulously designed to reflect the brand's unique style.
The store encompasses the whole world of the Jimmy Choo woman; shoes, handbags, eyewear, small leather goods and fragrances are all displayed against an alluring backdrop of luminous Istrian stone. Large crystal window displays showcase jewelled clutches to complete the most elegant evening looks, while the footwear - the most famous product of this British brand - take centre stage and is interpreted in every shape and form, including sneakers, iconic pumps and innovative, youthful sandals.
Exquisite details in velvet, and lagoon-blue carpets strewn across typically Venetian ‘Terrazzo' floors, take customers on a magical journey suspended between the past and the present making the Jimmy Choo boutique a place where the allure of the Serenissima and the treasure trove of a modern-day Cinderella combine to offer customers a unique shopping experience. >> www.jimmychoo.com
