A west coast, rock ‘n roll attitude prevails in the Jimmy Choo Pre-Fall 2012 collection, with a wardrobe that allows natural beauties to groove by day at Coachella and rock a laid-back allure by night. Her daytime looks are toughened up with biker leather and slouchy bags. Crafted details likeartisanal stitching, woven suede and patchwork accents add a bohemian edge,while her evenings introduce a relaxed glamour with pointy-toe pumps, glittery sandals and tailored evening clutches.
The classic Jimmy Choo biker boot, with gold buckle detail, is glammed up as GALEN, a 110 mm platform variation with treaded lug sole and a ciggy heel. The same attitude manifests in handbags with BIKER, a relaxed shoulder bag draped with chain detail along the closure, and BON BON, a cross-body saddle bag featuring the same draped biker chains. Cowboy boots, perfect for dancing in a field, are given a slim, sexy shape with BABEL.
Sporty chic evolves in JUSTINE, the luxurious day bag rendered for Pre-Fall in blush python and smouldering plum suede. Pared down clutch, JASMINE, is expressed in creamy calf leather with hand-sewn patchwork python. The high artisanal luxury is carried through with PINE, a 120mm wedge sandal in rust braided suede.
Evenings always sparkle for the Jimmy Choo girl, and this season she has sandals in variations of glam materials from bourbon-shaded leopard, black mesh and glittery metallic. Minaudières, mirror bar clutches and chain fringe purses complement her evening look. Casual evening clutch CHANDRA, a supple suede with pale gold chains, is the perfect way to dress up for girls who don’t want to look dressed up.
While the SoCal spirit holds allure for the Jimmy Choo girl, her soul is faithfully British. With the eyes of the world squarely on London this season, Jimmy Choo offers a wardrobe of UNION JACK accessories poised to make their own British Invasion. Tote bags, loafers, and small leather goods in white denim are punked up with metallic studs and a whimsical rendering of the red, white and blue Union flag. Festival goers can also wave the banner by sporting the UNION JACK sunglasses, classic glossy frames in black, red, navy or white.
