Milan just seems to get better and better – after the fabulous Emporio Armani show, I made my way to the Jimmy Choo presentation! And, Boy! Was I blown away!
Inspired by the art of Ballet, Sandra Choi’s collection for Jimmy Choo Autumn Winter 15 has discipline and design.
Drawing on the powerful sense of emotion conveyed by the line of a dancer’s body, the palpable passion created by a single movement and the elegance of an arabesque, the collection explores a pas des deux relationship between ballet and bondage, the binding and tying of a dancer’s ankle with a simple ribbon that gives the confidence to release an emotionally charged performance.
Buckles harness, fine leather ribbon ties caress, minimal leather and brushed gold hardware cuff details bind evocatively and exaggerated organza bows tease the ankle and the foot. Decadent and sensuous velvet dominates lending a richness of texture contrasting with the softest nappa leather. The colour palette sees the innocence of ballet pink contrasted with moodier hues of teal, red, cinnamon, black and a degradé of ballet pink to black python.
With super gorgeous detailing and accents to make sure they turn heads, Sandra Choi made everyone dream of Choo!
Fashion and friends are a match made in heaven, at the presentation i had the lovely Ekta from Grazia, Nandini from Elle and Varun from Harpers Bazaar for company!
