LUXURY SNEAKERS ARE THE NEW STILETTOS
THIS $4,400 crystal-encrusted Diamond black sneakers (Jimmy Choo) fashion is the new stilettos.
Launched two years ago, The Jimmy Choo sneaker gained a new relevance for a brand normally known for its 10-centimeter-high heels (3.9 inches).
Sneakers are now part of the classic wardrobe, “it’s a bit like denim jeans, which speak to all generations and all styles,” says Jennifer Cuvillier, style creative director at LVMH’s high-end department store Le Bon Marche in Paris. “
“The biggest advantage of the sneaker is that it makes the wearer look younger,” says Pierre Hardy, the shoe designer at Hermes International. “You can wear the most traditional clothes such as a fur coat and mix it with sneakers, and you’ll look 10 or 15 years younger. It’s unconscious, but that’s their strength.”
