For Cruise 2017 Jimmy Choo’s Creative Director, Sandra Choi has concocted a powerfully potent feast of accessories designed to sate the appetites of both wearer and watcher. Rich layers of colour, embellishment and decoration expressed via faultless fabrication combine to create a collection that simultaneously provokes and enchants.
Choi said: “I was thinking about that giddy delight you see in children when they choose from a tray of sweets I wanted there to be sense a showmanship and an irresistible boldness throughout the Cruise season. Our capsule collection allows you to express a new level of individuality through your shoes. Choose the shoe or bag that fits your mood and pick from a tempting menu of jewelled and fur pompom treats to play with. Designing and creativity are my passions and I wanted to give our clients the chance to share this wonderful experience.”
As part of the Cruise line up Jimmy Choo unveils a Capsule Collection that invites you to choose not just the shoes but the decoration too. There will be three variations on customisation with each one offering the opportunity to personalise and instantly transform accessories with an irresistible suite of jewelled decorations crafted from Swarovski crystals.
Floral and vintage star inspired button charms pop onto pointy toe pumps, platforms and bags; pearl, diamanté and fur pompom brooches clip on to flats and ankle strap pumps as well as sliding onto clutch clasps. But the main cruise collection comprises a manna of showpiece dishes including an abstracted camo-floral pattern in blue, dark purple, yellow and lilac – a camouflage for elegantly standing out rather than anonymously blending in. With some styles, the pattern is garlanded with sinuous twists of Swarovski crystal: an extra dusting of visceral visual va-va-voom.
