Cinderella’s Revenge, is the worlds first chandelier created as an alter to the love of shoes with an 8-ft drop, and fiber optic illumination. Its tubular glass fringes cause light to subtly fade amidst a trail of luxuriously covered heels, elegantly trailing along the floor.
Terry De Havilland is the ultimate Rock & Roll shoe designer. His haute couture shoes are lusted after; they are desired. They adorn the feet of beautiful women the world over. They demand to be presented to the world on a pedestal, they are timeless works of art.
Fiona Gall also loves De Havilland shoes and in their honor created this fantastical chandelier ‘Cinderella’s Revenge’.
Fiona designer of the Emerald Faerie bespoke lighting collections, had previously created sculptural lighting objects stimulated by her love of fashion pieces for her Naughty Faerie collection. Inspired by the Naughty Fearie collection Hermes commissioned her in 2008 to create light bags of their iconic Birkin, Kelly, Bombay and the new Rugby bags. These were used as the centerpiece for the launch of their 2008 autumn windows in five stores across America.
Fiona has now created a chandelier that encapsulates the luxury, glamour, and customized finish and detail inherent in both hers and De Havilland‘s bespoke creations. ‘Cinderella’s Revenge’ reinterprets the design of De Havilland shoes. It echo’s and celebrates the glamour of their fabrics and adornments, the shape of the 7-inch heels, and the very tools used to make them, whilst amplifying their theatrical presence.
Inspired by this extravagant homage, De Havilland returned the compliment and designed a pair of shoes especially for ‘Cinderella’s revenge. With heels covered in bespoke leatherwork of gold & silver iguana skin, these shoes now form the apex of the chandelier.
