While some medium-range clothing retailers such as Macy's (M - Get Report) are shuttering stores and laying off thousands, and discounter T.J. Maxx, owned by TJ Companies (TJX - Get Report) is thriving, the British luxury retailer Jimmy Choo is in another category altogether. It still sells shoes for up to $4,500 despite the headwinds rippling through the retail sector.
The high-end retailer said Monday that it's putting itself up for sale as part of a review of its strategic options. The fashion brand said the board has decided to conduct a review of the various options to maximize value for shareholders and that it is seeking offers for the company, The Deal, a sister publication of TheStreet, reports. Jimmy Choo said that its majority shareholder, JAB Luxury, is supportive of the sale process.
TheStreet takes quick look at some of the most expensive things Jimmy Choo currently has for sale. Make no mistake, this is a brand that often is not on sale anywhere (which should make it attractive to possible suitors).
