BY THE BAY: Jimmy Choo will open its first store in San Francisco — its sixth freestanding door in California — today on Geary Street. The 1,700-square-foot unit will carry the brand’s women’s shoes, handbags and accessories, including the Choo 24:7 collection.
To mark the opening, as well as pique the interest of the city’s digerati, the store will carry an exclusive limited-edition iPad case in salt-and-pepper glitter fabric. It will retail for $495.
