BEVERLY HILLS—Jimmy Choo is celebrating 20 glorious years in the business of beautifying red carpets, and to mark the anniversary, they've released a special Memento line—a capsule collection of seriously glam shoes—including a limited edition Memento trunk, available for public viewing tomorrow at Saks (9600 Wilshire Boulevard). The trunk holds up to 20 pairs of shoes from the Memento collection, with each drawer lined in suede and available at select Jimmy Choo stores starting in April. Designed by Creative Director Sandra Choi (who will be at Saks tomorrow from 2-4pm), the trunk is the ultimate luxury item, and is sold in conjunction with the complete set of 20 red carpet styles featured in the anniversary collection.
