Discover Jimmy Choo‘s Autumn Winter 2020.21 Cultured Glamour collection, that was inspired by models Talitha Getty and Tina Chow, as well as with bringing cultures together instead of pushing them apart, presented on Saturday February 22nd, during the recently finished Milan Fashion Week.
Glamour must be cultured – fed by art and aesthetics and in turn reflecting them. It is something universally prized, almost magically created – like a pearl. This season, I was thinking about preciousness, about refinement and elevation, about paying attention to details. Creating something beautiful, artful and considered. Something designed to last. – Sandra Choi
“The collection’s twin muses are Talitha Getty and Tina Chow, both of whom crossed cultures fearlessly, ever-curious, they drew inspirations from different backgrounds weaving them together. They share the spirit of the modern Jimmy Choo heroine, whose appetite for life inspires through style, celebrating and championing opposing cultural spheres, reflective of a modern society, a blending of ideas without any creative boundaries.
Symbolic of purity, loyalty and wisdom pearls are a powerful leitmotif of the collection, used as studding, embroideries and embellishment. Pearls of wisdom, cultured pearls: they epitomise the creative approach. They are literally present on streamlined, sports-influenced shapes – pearls and jewels are embroidered on the evening KENDRIX ankle boot, jewel embroideries of motifs drawn from the “Toile de Choo” pattern also emblazon the SABER sock-boot balanced atop a mother of pearl kick heel. They are also translated to three-dimensional brooch like embroideries on the delicate lace on the LORRE evening ankle boot and the LUCELE sandal.“
