Following the success of the unexpected brand pairing in 2020, Jimmy Choo collaborates with work- and outdoor-inspired brand Timberland on a new footwear collection inspired by the city of New York. This high-octane capsule sees Timberland’s iconic Original Yellow Boot re-imagined through the glamorous lens of Jimmy Choo’s creative director Sandra Choi.
The capsule comprises seven styles across men’s and women’s, including two hot pink velvet boots finished with transparent soles, two classic nubuck boots with a graffiti-inspired Jimmy Choo logo script, a black boot with a Swarovski crystal embellished collar and a thigh-high black leather harness boot that has dual styling function, transforming into a classic 6-inch silhouette with ease. The collection is completed with a heeled version of the iconic Timberland 6-inch boot covered entirely in Swarovski crystals, available in highly limited quantities exclusively at Jimmy Choo.
“Although our brand was born in New England in 1973, we’ve always considered New York City our second home. This community helped make us who we are today, which is why we were so excited to bring in Harlem’s Fashion Row as a partner. It’s been an honor to work alongside Shanel and this amazing team of creatives to blend Timberland’s work and outdoor heritage, the glamour of Jimmy Choo, the gritty energy of New York and create such a unique collection.” – Drieke Leenknegt, CMO, Timberland.
With its bold attitude and ‘90s hip hop roots, the Original Yellow Boot epitomizes the city of New York – which served as the inspiration for this special capsule. The campaign is a celebration of the city’s vibrant creative community — shot on a New York rooftop.
