Emmy London is a British label known for its elegant shapes and beautiful details on shoes, bags and accessories. The new Corinthia Collection has Emmy’s classic signature, and the effect feels very contemporary – all sleek lines and glamorous design twists.
This new collection was inspired by one of London’s most iconic hotels – the Corinthia on Whitehall Place, SW1 – and drew inspiration in particular from the Baccarat Crystal chandelier that holds centre stage in the Crystal Moon Lounge – fondly referred to as the ‘heart of the hotel’.
The Corinthia Collection takes that decadent hotel centrepiece as a starting point. Shoes and bags in the collection embrace circle and loop formations, incorporating lavish glass beadwork, delicate stitching and crystal sequins alongside bugle beads, crystal discs and metallic edging.
Pieces within the collection offer a style for every type of wedding-day ensemble – ranging from sleek slingbacks to stiletto heels dripping with glamorous sparkle. While it feels completely on-trend – especially as the new season’s bridal gown collections are so rich on intricate detail – the look is also timeless. Drawing upon Emmy London’s signature attention to detail and meticulous craftsmanship, these are pieces to be treasured and worn again at parties and other special occasions.
Founder and creative director of Emmy London Emmy Scarterfield says: “I adore the Corinthia, it is such a beautiful luxurious space to spend time in. Within the architecture and styling, the hotel has created a perfect balance of historical references with modern touches. Previous collections have been inspired by destinations and architecture around the world so it was great to gain inspiration closer to home and celebrate the brand’s London heritage.’’
Each piece is hand finished with a red crystal on the sole – a nod to the hotel’s hidden ruby within the Baccarat chandelier – and also the finishing touch that Emmy London is known for on all its glamorous wedding and occasion shoes.
