If there is a myth in the paradise of shoes is Jimmy Choo. I love it since the time of “Sex and the City” when Sarah Jessica Parker and her friends were getting crazy about these beautiful and sexy shoes. A couple of weeks ago, after a big renovation and expansion, they reopened the store in via Condotti 68A. It is a good new because before it was quite small and always packed. Now they have 80 sqm and my clients are will be happy. The shoes are made in Italy. The global store which includes also bags and clutches was designed in partnership with the New York based Christian Lahoude studio.

The full women’s collection of shoes, handbags, bridal, made to order, eyewear, small leather goods and fragrances is presented over three rooms. Exposed barrel vault ceilings finished in marble pay homage to the traditional Roman parietal, in stucco. Floors are in marble with rich veins and gold reflections. The yellow travertine, are used in thresholds and the portal passing from one hall to another, recalling the warm tones of metal finishes in bronze and gold.

Jimmy Choo encompasses a complete luxury accessories brand. Women’s shoes remain the core of the product offer. CEO Pierre Denis and Creative Director Sandra Choi together share a vision to create a glamourous company. Jimmy Choo is part of the Michael Kors Holding Limited luxury fashion group who just acquired Versace.

Jo Malone in Rome a perfumed shopping experience

Londonian atmospheres for the Jo Malone London, an elegant boutique of perfumes and candles in Via del Babuino in Rome has been completely renovated. Last week they made a cocktail party to celebrate it

The well-known brand, expression of the British lifestyle, famous for its unique range of fragrances and luxury products for person, home and body care has quite a lot of success. Roman and tourists love to step in.

When you get inside you will notice that everything is based on a black and white contrast. The interior design is sober and glamourous with modern furnishings and a cozy atmosphere. A corner of Rome full of british candles, perfumes for the environment, body creams and cologne, in an all-round olfactory journey. The creative project of Jo Malone London, in fact, is inspired by London culture, creating fragrances that tell a story, each time different and fascinating, using only the most noble and refined ingredients.

Different olfactory families, which become elements to play with: the salesman of Jo Malone London accompany the customer on an olfactory path to discover the many fragrances, and invite him to dare and experiment with unusual, unique and tailor-made combinations. We also like the body line with cream for hands and body.

The boxes that contain candles, perfumes and fragrances signed Jo Malone London are a unique object with a touch of art. The art of the gift. In the shop, they always add a beautiful black ribbon. The presents are wrapped on a black tissue paper, and feature a postcard to customize it. Give it a try.
