Following her recent appearance at Shangri-La Hotel, at The Shard, London’s third Cultural Salon, London-based designer, Beatrix Ong, MBE introduces a new limited edition luxury slipper created exclusively for the guests and residents of the hotel.
The slippers are a marriage of sustainability, high design and comfort that both brands are renowned for and will only be available in London’s only elevated hotel from 1st October 2015.
The hotel’s 202 luxuriously appointed rooms and suites are all individually designed with Asian influences complementing the stunning skyline. Alongside luxurious amenities such as Acqua Di Parma bathroom products, Chinese Tea Sets and a pillow menu, the exclusive range of slippers will be available as a complimentary luxury amenity within the hotel’s three Signature Suites: The Shangri-La Suite, The London Suite, and The Westminster Suite, and will be available in all rooms and suites for purchase at £88 per pair. Made with luxurious silk velvet and non-slip suede soles, and in two sizes, the backs can be folded down transforming them into a slip on style if desired.
Mindfully designed, the luxury slippers form part of the new collection and are strongly anchored
in sustainability, not just on an environmental basis, but on a social and industrial level as well. Each pair is completed with insoles made from bamboo and charcoal – natural deodorisers that are also anti-perspiring and ionising for better comfort and improved circulation.
London-based designer, Beatrix Ong, has won critical acclaim for her work from an early age, first as creative director for Jimmy Choo then with the eponymous shoe range, which quickly garnered significant attention and became available in the world’s most prestigious stores. This exciting collaboration with Shangri-La Hotel, at The Shard, London is taking place at a time when Beatrix’s other work is also gaining attention – as earlier and current pieces are part of the Victoria & Albert’s permanent collection and as part of Shoes: Pleasure & Pain. She’s also launching a new concept collection one design at a time in collaborations with the Design Museum in London.
Rooms at Shangri-La Hotel, At The Shard, London, are from £350 per night. To book, visit Shangri-La.com/London.
