Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cinderella meets Aquazzura at Brown’s Hotel

As Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cinderella revival hits the West End, Brown’s Hotel celebrates the musical with a bespoke in-suite shopping experience, in association with Aquazzura shoes.

Head of Heels

Brown’s: The Rocco Forte, hosts the glittering pop-up in The Donovan Bar (named after 1960’s photographer Terence Donovan), in a collaboration with luxury Italian women’s footwear brand Aquazzura. It marks the new season of London’s musical scene, as Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cinderella plays at the Gillian Lynne Theatre – just a short taxi hop from Brown’s. The ‘Head of Heels’ package includes the very best tickets to the award-winning show, making for a magical weekend break in the capital.

Quintessentially British with a hint of the unexpected, Brown’s Hotel boasts 115 authentically designed rooms and suites designed by Olga Polizzi. Each pays tribute to the hotel’s illustrious heritage and world-renowned charm.

Footwear for celebrities

Aquazzura’s creations combine luxury and craftsmanship with comfort and wearability. Every pair of the Italian brand’s shoes display innovative design, sophisticated embellishments, and vibrant colour palettes. The brand is favoured by many celebrities and fashion stars from around the world, including Meghan, Duchess of Sussex and Olivia Palermo, as well as featuring in Just Like That (the recent incarnation of Sex and the City), worn by the character Carrie Bradshaw.

The iconic collections can be viewed and purchased at over 300 top retailers in 58 countries, as well as online at, and at flagship boutiques in Florence, London, New York, Miami, Doha, Dubai, Milan, São Paulo, and Capri. Founded by Edgardo Osorio in 2011, Aquazurra will be celebrating 10 years during 2022 coinciding with a yearlong celebration of Brown’s Hotel 185th Anniversary.

A VIP shopping experience

As their design philosophy is shared by Brown’s, it’s fitting that the two have come together to create the ‘Head over Heels with Aquazzura’ package. Guests booking this can choose either a one or two-night stay in one of the hotel’s beautifully appointed suites. They’ll be treated to bespoke experiences from the dedicated team at Aquazzura’s flagship store on Albemarle Street, just steps away from the hotel, including in-suite design consultations and shoe fitting. Guests will also receive an exclusive invitation to visit the Aquazzura store after hours for a VIP shopping experience as well as a pedicure at The Spa at Brown’s.

Crystal heels

The Donovan Bar is displaying three of Aquazzura’s finest shoes from its latest collection, the Tequila Plexi Sandal 105, Temptation Crystal Sandal 105 and the Seduction Crystal Pump 105. Guests are able to view and admire the shoes whilst sipping on delectable libations from Salvatore Calabrese’s extensive cocktail menu. ‘Tequila Scandal’ has been created specially in celebration of this exclusive collaboration.
