London-based luxury footwear label Jimmy Choo, well-known creator of glamorous stilettos, has opened its first Canadian flagship in Yorkdale. To celebrate the launch of the new store, the designer brand created a special edition of its Candy clutch. Instead of an acrylic sunset, the handbag is decorated with a near-replica of the Toronto subway map, only the station names have been replaced with a haphazard mix of fashion accessories, gems and wild animals. (For example, the Bloor line lists “Eagle,” “Candy,” “Youth,” “Diamond” and “Biker” as a few of its stops.) Flaunting your affinity for the TTC by way of designer labels doesn’t come cheap: the clutch clocks in at $1,095. Last we checked, there were about eight left of the original 20 produced—which means 12 die-hard Torontonians with deep pockets have already purchased the thing.
