In celebration of the release of Disney’s live action film inspired by the classic fairy tale “Cinderella,” Disney Consumer Products (DCP) has collaborated with nine luxury designer shoe brands across the globe to assemble an enchanting collection of shoes that re-imagine Cinderella’s iconic glass slipper. The distinguished designers, in alphabetical order, are: Paul Andrew, Alexandre Birman, Rene Caovilla, Jimmy Choo, Salvatore Ferragamo, Nicholas Kirkwood, Charlotte Olympia, Jerome C. Rousseau, and Stuart Weitzman. Each brand has created its own interpretation of the famed glass slipper Cinderella accidentally leaves behind when the clock strikes midnight.
The shoes will exclusively be displayed at Level Shoe District in Dubai, from March 11th to the 24th.
I personally find Charlotte Olympia's Cinderelly heels are the most appealing design to me, minus the platform detail, the platform makes them look borderline tacky. Jimmy Choo's version would have looked really nice if they would have toned down on the crystals a notch. Paul Andrew and Ferragamo's look like a replica of Gianvito Rossi. Alexandre Birman didn't even bother with coming u with a new design and used one of its signature designs. Nicholas Kirkwood had a potential but again they killed it, in a negative way, with the mega bling bling details.
The re-imagining of this iconic story told in spectacular live action is directed by Sir Kenneth Branagh, and includes the stellar cast of Cate Blanchett, Lily James, Richard Madden, Helena Bonham Carter and more. The Walt Disney Studios film “Cinderella” is in theatres March 12th, 2015.
