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 especially in Palm Beach. 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 fragrances. 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.

Chanel

The French fashion house opened its doors on Worth Avenue, revealing uberluxe interiors across two stories (including a shoe salon, three ready-to-wear salons and a VIP event space on the top floor).
