Jimmy Choo / Jean Paul Gaultier is here
Talk about a legendary trinity. The Jimmy Choo / Jean Paul Gautlier collaboration dropped today, mere weeks after a surprise announcement, with a campaign starring Kylie Minogue to really make a splash. Minogue, who was styled by Katie Grand with creative direction by Sandra Choi and Florence Tetier in the imagery and accompanying videos, was both brands’ only choice. After all, she’s been wearing custom JPG on stage for years and Choi has ensured that the singer has had no shortage of specially-created Choos gracing her feet either. For the shoot, the new collaboration is highlighted alongside Grand’s curation of archival Jean Paul Gaultier numbers. “Fashion for me has always been about collaboration with like-minded creatives, and pure personal self-expression,” the Aussie chart-topper said in a release. “Jean Paul Gaultier and Jimmy Choo have both been part of my fashion journey, and I’m thrilled to work with both of them to celebrate this exceptional collection. It’s our collective histories fusing, to create something fresh and new.” As for the collection, it marries brand codes and energies across pumps, mules, and boots. Think: corsetry-inspired details, trompe l’oeil print, hand-drawn tattoo-style etchings, punk elements, and a nod to London and Paris.
