In an age of social concern , ethical sourcing and political correctness, I was tickled by the recent launch, by both Jimmy ‘sex in the city’ Choo and that august institution of haute couture, Hermes, of what are in effect super luxury cup holders or sleeves!
Jimmy Choo’s ‘Rika’ Croc effect cup sleeves are available in taupe, dark brown and black crocodile effect leather and measure 23 cm wide by 6 cm high
They come beautifully gift boxed and retail at a cool £95!
Hermes on the other hand has gone a step further and don’t simply offer fake crocodile but the real McCoy…
Hermes ‘Cozies’ retail at $250 and are beautifully finished scraps of leather… Apparently, the raisin d’être of ‘Petit h’ is to find ‘new and creative uses for leftover scraps of leather and silk or defective china and crystal’ so this is ultimate luxury with a conscience – or as I have heard it called up-cycling!
I think I can probably take or leave these innovations …I am a fan of simple beauty and so love ESE Easy Serving Espresso pods… a prime example of form and function, easing together, to produce something of substance, an ESE pod which delights with perfetto espresso!
