Retail, culture and custom style to start 2021 on the right note.
Bing patent leather mules by Jimmy Choo
Carrie Bradshaw may have made the brand a household name in Sex and the City, but Jimmy Choo has come a long way since then. The British footwear label’s sexy aesthetic has fans all over the world, and most especially in Palm Beach. Thus, the company’s opening of a new boutique at The Royal Poinciana Plaza. The 1,800-square-foot store is marked by lush greenery and fuchsia accents with marble finishes. As for the inventory? Every single Jimmy Choo treasure you can think of: shoes, bags, eyewear, small leather goods, soft accessories and even fragrance. The shop will also offer a special selection of pieces from its bridal collection and the label’s made-to-order service, which allows shoppers to create their dream shoe or bag from a suite of signature styles, colors, textures and finishes. 340 Royal Poinciana Way, Palm Beach, 305.864.3656
Custom monogrammed towels by Ashley Begley for Pioneer Linens
When it comes to home, custom is always best. Cue the new collaboration between watercolor artist Ashley Begley and Palm Beach institution Pioneer Linens. The company has tapped Begley for a capsule collection of towels, tissue box covers, cocktail napkins, robes and throw pillows customizable with bespoke monograms and crests. All napkins are made of 100% Italian linen, and the combed cotton towels from Portugal are available in 20 colors. Additional creative items are available upon request with a six-week lead time. “There is a return to truly bespoke,” says Penny Murphy, president of Pioneer Linens. “Ashley’s work is stunning, and we’re so happy to introduce a new generation to heirloom embroidered linens and home decor.”
As culture slowly begins to make a comeback, classical music aficionados’ eyes (and ears) are all on the Palm Beach Symphony, which will kick off its 47th season with a televised concert in the hopes of performing the remainder of the season as a mix of livestream and select seating. Taking the stage of the Kravis Center on Jan. 24 at 3PM is violinist Pinchas Zukerman, whose all-Beethoven program will include the Violin Concerto in D Major, Op. 61; Coriolan Overture, Op. 62; and Symphony No. 7 in A Major, Op. 92. “I’ve collaborated with many of these acclaimed artists in the past and have been struck by their commitment as they rearranged schedules and programs,” says Music Director Gerard Schwarz. “We cannot wait to bring this season to our audience.”
