Jimmy Choo knows how to brighten up a wet Tuesday evening. The luxury shoe brand was in the mood to party last night as they opened the doors to their first flagship store devoted entirely to menswear. The footwear emporium is situated in a Georgian building at 35 Dover Street, a mere stone’s throw away from Christian Louboutin and Dover Street Market.
The retro-modern interior conjures up images of Don Draper choosing a pair of velvet smoking slippers for his next dalliance, while the marble bar on the ground-floor suggests an icy martini after one-too-many shopping splurges. This wasn’t a boys-only shop, as the weekend bags and star-embossed wallets were definitely female-friendly. We think that we might be paying another visit to this place, sooner than our bank manager would like us to. (Jimmy Choo)
