SHOP THE JIMMY CHOO / MUGLER CAPSULE COLLECTION
Jimmy Choo has collaborated with the French House of Mugler on an exclusive capsule collection of shoes and boots.
February 17, 2022
A creative partnership fusing two heritages founded on visions of powerful, confident and glamorous femininity, the Jimmy Choo / Mugler capsule collection was co-designed by the houses respective Creative Director’s Sandra Choi and Casey Cadwallader.
Inspired by the storied history of the French Maison and Jimmy Choo’s legacy of glamorous craftsmanship blended with the twenty-first century identities forged by both creative directors, the collaboration takes as its leitmotif the ideas of the extreme and of empowerment. The result is a unique hybrid of two different aesthetics that share strong and dramatic perspectives with design details that not only decorate but stimulate the senses.
“There’s an inherent connection there between the language of Mugler and the language of Jimmy Choo – our roots in the 1990s, the resonance those have today with a younger generation, but the urge to update, to re-engineer and not just revive,” said Sandra Choi, Creative Director Jimmy Choo.
The silhouettes are universal with a carved, architectural shape and a graphic, sharply squared base. The vamp is elongated, exaggerated, razored to a fine point – a focal-point on the foot, and the body as a whole. The color palette is focused with black and nude, neon yellow, silver and gold.
“I have always associated Jimmy Choo with a very strong sense of sculpture in shoes, a balance of sharpness and curve. Both Mugler and Jimmy Choo are forward and sensual, and both worn by strong and confident women,” said Casey Cadwallader, Creative Director of Mugler.
Reflecting the parallel ideologies of both Jimmy Choo and Mugler, the capsule collection transgresses boundaries, challenging conventions. As the personalities of these two brands and the outlooks of their two creative directors merge, so do the languages, techniques and materials of footwear, jewelry and clothing.
