Lighting up the Los Angeles skyline, JIMMY CHOO hosted an exclusive cocktail event celebrating the launch of its first eyewear collection in partnership with EssilorLuxottica. The festivities took place at a private residence in Beverly Hills where guests were greeted upon arrival entering through a circular concrete driveway that led into an open living space overlooking the city of Los Angeles. Jimmy Choo creative director Sandra Choi welcomed and mingled with guests as they previewed sunwear and optical styles from the eyewear collection. DJ Amrit provided the soundtrack for the evening spinning tunes while notable guests including Selma Blair, Cynthia Erivo, Olivia Holt and Karrueche Tran donned their new Jimmy Choo frames.

“Jimmy Choo eyewear is entering a new era with its first collection in partnership with EssilorLuxottica. The eyewear embodies the brand’s continuous pursuit of excellence paired with EssilorLuxottica’s expertise in luxury craftsmanship,” says Alessandro Mariani, vice president of brand marketing, EssilorLuxottica. “The styles are made from recycled acetate with bio-nylon lenses and use crystal, pearl and signature brand signifiers for an elevated recognizable look. These signifiers include diamond-shaped studs, which are present for the first time in the eyewear category, and sharp custom temple tips recalling the heel of Jimmy Choo shoes.”

Founded in 1996, Jimmy Choo’s roots began in bespoke shoemaking and has since evolved into a global luxury accessories house spanning shoes, handbags, fragrance and jewelry, worn and coveted by style icons on the red carpet and beyond. With the Jimmy Choo logo commanding the stunning views of LA at sunset, the brand welcomed this new chapter in eyewear, casting a golden glow on its first Jimmy Choo Spring Summer 2024 Eyewear collection with EssilorLuxottica.
