Stiletto heels are back on the agenda, as are pointed pumps in candy-coloured shades of satin. This season’s most desirable come adorned with jeweled embellishments: from pearls and beads at Miu Miu to gem-studded tigers’ heads at Gucci and Swarovski crystals at Aquazzura, Rupert Sanderson and countless others. Today, we present you the Jimmy Choo Cruise 2017 Custom Bejewelled Collection!
Tapping into this jazzy-toed trend is king of party-season footwear Jimmy Choo, which today launches a capsule collection of customizable jeweled shoes and bags. Inspired by the childhood glee of choosing from a tray of sweets, the range features interchangeable pearl, diamante, fur and pom-pom brooches which can be clipped onto any pair of heels or flats, as well as a series of button-like charms which attach to specially made pumps and platform sandals, allowing the wearer to create their own design.

“The collection allows you to express a new level of individuality through your shoes,” says creative director Sandra Choi. “Designing and creativity are my passions and I wanted to give our clients the chance to share this wonderful experience.”
Elsewhere, Manolo Blahnik’s bejewelled Hangisi pump, so beloved of Sex and the City’s Carrie Bradshaw, is experiencing a comeback, seen on countless bloggers and street-style stars paired with distressed denim or boyfriend jeans: a high-low mix that steers well clear of princess territory.
The return of seasonal sparkle is fortuitous for British shoe designer Aruna Seth, whose crystal-embellished shoes have been a hit in the Middle East, China and Russia since she launched in 2009. A successful pop-up at Harrods this summer exposed the brand to UK consumers too, with her four-inch pointed pumps, adorned with a Swarovski crystal butterfly, proving a best-seller.
