They say opposites attract and this is no exception when it comes to high end fashion. The Spring collection showcases glamour through a variety of unexpected contradictions – which really work. Think techno fabrics alongside natural materials, an undisputed collision of vibrant colours and even precious pearls for a daytime look.
The collection places great emphasis on the importance of materials and their use to create a new approach through geometric contrasts: the RYA mule boasts a delicate fluted heel and is sliced with bands of black and cognac, inspiration drawn from timeless ‘90s neutrals. Eel-skin is translated to the BON BON BUCKET, a new roomier evolution, for day or night, suspended from a tough silver bracelet.
The clever fusion of toughness and precious is showcased in the sensuous shape of the vamp and solid block heel presented by the MATTY mule which is contradicted perfectly with the silver studs that delineate each. Perhaps an unexpected choice, tortoiseshell is the new animal expression to feature in the collection and is translated to flats heels and bags; including the iconic CANDY clutch and a tortoiseshell resin chain adds the animal touch to the VARENNE CLUTCH, in black textured patent.
A precise outline of each shoe is created through strong architecture, in which shape and form play a vital role; undeniably slick and indisputably polished. And of course, the exuberantly embellished finishing touches Jimmy Choo is renowned for. Decorative crystals inlay the delicate ankle-strap but they are also part of the structure creating a stylish blend of form and function.
A real stand out from the rest of the new neutral palette is the SAE, a stain sandal with graceful curves designed in the most energetic shade of fuchsia – a real wild card! Balance in the collection is found with the SAE’s counterpart the BON BON accomplished in its most jewel-like incarnation, with preciousness and purity found in every facet.
