With all the buzz that the Cinderella movie continues to create, let’s now talk about one important thing! You’re a modern-day Cinderella and your fairy tale won’t be complete without your glass slippers!
Well, it seems that you’re in luck! Saks Fifth Avenue has released its very own Cinderella shoe collection in collaboration with Disney. Shoe creations of Jimmy Choo, Salvatore Ferragamo, Nicholas Kirkwood, Charlotte Olympia and Stuart Weitzman are now on display at Saks Fifth Avenue’s 10022-SHOE salons in New York City and Beverly Hills.
These modern Cinderella shoes feature an assortment of crystals and transparent PVC to recreate one of the most controversial footwear in fairy tale history.
“I wanted to create a shoe that felt magical, with alluring sparkle and a feminine, timeless silhouette evoking those childhood emotions,” said Jimmy Choo creative director Sandra Choi, as quoted by SaksPOV.
“I am delighted and honoured to be invited by Disney to design one of the most iconic shoes in history. It was such a pleasure to create my version of Cinderella’s glass slipper which I have aptly named If the Shoe Fits. This transparent platform shoe made with my signature PVC & perspex materials is adorned with star and crystal detailing as befits any princess,” Charlotte Olympia shared.
Stuart Weitzman also explained his creation, saying, “Cinderella in 2015 has a timeless appeal. The diamond and translucent bootie enhance the vision I have of her.”
Nicholas Kirkwood, on the other hand, reveals that his Cinderella shoe version is inspired by Ella’s traits. “Cinderella has both delicate and strong qualities as a character. The moment of transformation emphasizes both and gave me the design inspiration to create a piece that spoke to the film’s magic,” he said.
“Shoe grant wishes and raise emotions,” says Rene Caovilla. “Passion and never ending research don’t draw the line at fantasy and creativity. This is how dreams come true in our fairy tale.”
Other designers have also created their version of the Cinderella’s shoes. See them below.
