If Cinderella's glass slipper were made by Nicholas Kirkwood, Jimmy Choo, or Jerome C. Rousseau, we doubt she would have left it behind. Saks Fifth Avenue has partnered with Disney to reproduce the housekeeper-turned-princess's glass slipper, and the collection will be on display at Saks Bal Harbour from March 12th through the 18th.
Nine of the luxury world's most coveted shoe designers are redesigning the famed glass slipper: Paul Andrew, Alexandre Birman, René Caovilla, Jimmy Choo, Salvatore Ferragamo, Nicholas Kirkwood, Charlotte Olympia, Jerome C. Rousseau, and Stuart Weitzman. And although Swarovski took the costume credits in the movie, we'd like think that today's modern day Cinderella steps into her carriage with a pair of sleek Jerome C. Rousseau sandal heels.
