Jimmy Choo, Stuart Weitzman & More Are Re-Making Cinderella's Glass Slipper
February 10, 2015
Have you ever wondered if Cinderella lost her glass slipper on purpose? Maybe it didn’t just fall off when she was rushing to get home before the midnight. Maybe she just thought they were ugly or uncomfortable (because, you know, they’re GLASS). Well, clearly I’m not the only one who thinks things like this, because some of the best shoe designers in the game are coming to her aid and designing glass slippers of their own, in honor of the upcoming live-action Cinderella movie, in theaters this March.
According to Vogue UK, designers like Jimmy Choo, Stuart Weitzman, Salvatore Ferragamo, Nicholas Kirkwood, Charlotte Olympia and more have designed ranges of shoes, from pumps to sandals, made from glamorous materials such as Perspex and Swarovski crystals, inspired by the fairy-tale nature of Cinderella’s glass slippers. The shoes, which are set to be sold at key retailers like Harrods, Saks Fifth Avenue in NYC and Beverly Hills, and Galeries Lafayette in Paris, will be unveiled just before Valentine’s Day, in case you were still looking for the perfect gift.
