The Jimmy Choo 2021 Summer collection is inspired by a place full of colours, full of summer, an urban landscape juxtaposed by the beach.
Springtime in Paris: Introducing the Spring 21 Collection
Celebrating contradictory glamour, the Spring collection is instinctive - spontaneous, immediate, reactive. Opposites always attract, and glamour can be found in paradoxes, through unexpected contradictions. Natural materials contrast with techno fabrics. Pearls decorate for day. Colours collide for a vibrant clash.
The contradictory ethos of toughness and precious, fusing bijoux with accessory, is evoked through studs that embellish the MATTY mule allowing a focus on the sensuous shape of the vamp and solid block heel, each delineated with silver studs. Tortoiseshell is used as a new animal expression: unexpected, inspired by the universe of design, it is translated to flats and heels, as well as bags including the iconic CANDY clutch and the VARENNE CLUTCH, in black textured patent it is given a tortoiseshell resin chain.
The emphasis is on shape and form - the architecture of the shoe precisely outlined. Clean, slick, polished and sculptural. Finished with embellishments - joyously, exuberantly, as always with Jimmy Choo. Crystals inlay a delicate ankle-strap, decorative but also part of the structure, a blend of form and function. The SAE is a contradiction in terms: a vibrant fuchsia satin sandal, gracefully curved and lassoed to the ankle with a crystal anklet, it leaps out from the palette of new Jimmy Choo neutrals - a wild card, like Grace Jones herself. It finds a counterpart with the BON BON executed in its most jewel-like incarnation, a preciousness, a precision, a purity, found in every facet.
THIS IS A COLLECTION BORN OUT OF REFLECTION THAT SUMS UP WHAT WE DO BEST HONOURING OUR DNA. IT IS CONFIDENT, GLAMOROUS AND DARING. I WANTED TO CELEBRATE WHERE WE CAME FROM AND TO ASSERT WHAT WE MEAN NOT TO OUR WOMAN BUT TO OUR WOMEN - SANDRA CHOI, CREATIVE DIRECTOR
ON THE ONE HAND WE ARE ABOUT THE SLICK, THE STREAMLINED, THE SILHOUETTE AND ON THE OTHER WE ARE ABOUT COLOUR, GLOSS AND SPARKLE, BALANCING TIMELESSNESS WITH FASHION. THE CONSTANT THREAD REMAINS CONFIDENCE, STRENGTH AND THE DESIRE TO DARE TO STAND OUT. THAT IS THE ESSENCE OF JIMMY CHOO – SANDRA CHOI, CREATIVE DIRECTOR
