Jimmy Choo and Off-White Spawn a Royals-Themed Collaboration

Powerhouse luxury shoe and accessory brand Jimmy Choo and cult-favorite streetwear brand Off-White[1] will unite in a collection inspired by the elegance of the late Princess Diana, one of the very first Jimmy Choo devotees. The collection will celebrate Diana’s timeless royal style, while Virgil Abloh’s aesthetic[2] will reimagine classic silhouettes for 2018. Says Jimmy Choo Creative Director Sandra Choi, “To collaborate with a brand like Off-White allows Jimmy Choo to explore a new avenue and take part in a different conversation.” With both brands counting models, actors, musicians and taste-makers among their devoted fans, the collection is likely to be a celebrity street-style favorite.

Styles will include a modern take on the glass slipper, a pointy-toe heel encased in PVC. Another design takes inspiration from the tiara, drenched in feminine teardrop crystals. The collection will include boots as well, with leg-lengthening styles encased in elegant tulle or sleek PVC. Says Abloh, “Creative dreams were fulfilled when [we were] able to combine the young exuberance of Off-White and the storied elegance of Jimmy Choo.” The new designs will come in exclusive packaging[3], making the pieces as collectable as they are wearable.
