A few weeks ago we had the pleasure of meeting with the mother and designer herself, Lucy Choi. She invited us around her boutique in London. We couldn’t help but to browse through there summer 2018 collection, lots of colours, designs and budget to suit all pockets.
We choose our top 5 favourite summer shoes, be it for the school run, summer party or summer holiday destination. We have it all covered.
For those who do not know, Lucy Choi launched in 2012 and has since become a highly successful and sought-after shoe brand. Sold in the UK and internationally, it is admired by many, including a large celebrity following that boasts Darcey Bussell, Suranne Jones, Cheryl, Millie Macintosh, Jodie Kidd, Daisy Lowe and Joanna Lumley amongst others in its fanbase. International models Winnie Harlow, Tracy Baldwin and Alessandra Ambrosio are also supporters. The brand has also featured in Vogue, Hello, Grazia, Tatler and many other leading publications.
Thanks to Lucy’s family shoe dynasty and taking her inspiration from Uncle Jimmy Choo, this label benefits from Lucy’s in-depth knowledge of the shoe industry, with Lucy having worked in the business for almost 25 years. Lucy also combines her unique heritage, her fashion credentials and design expertise with the commercial experience she gained from having previously worked in the City.
She identified the need for affordable yet luxury footwear that can be worn day and night without compromising what Lucy calls the 3Cs – Comfort, Craftmanship, and Character. We couldn’t agree more to this.
We share with you some of our favourite picks for the Summer, it was really hard to choose from the wide collection available at the Lucy Choi London Boutique.
