Jimmy Choo unveils its Autumn Winter 2011 advertising campaign, shot for the first time by fashion photographer Steven Meisel. The campaign is inspired by cinematic 1970s Parisian glamour and conveys the darker, subversive side of femininity. Meisel lenses model Raquel Zimmermann in the old-world glamour of New York City’s Waldorf Astoria and captures a scene of stolen, or perhaps forbidden, romance.
The collection of Jimmy Choo shoes and handbags takes its cue from the early ’70s and the sultry stars of the time; icons Catherine Deneuve, Charlotte Rampling, and Veruschka, all admired as much for their beauty and style on-camera, as for their allure and innate sense of style off-camera.
“This season I looked to the women who have always inspired me for their chic, empowered sense of dress. The creative talent of Meisel transports us to a moment of stolen romance, perfectly capturing my vision for the season and the energy and spirit of the Jimmy Choo woman.” – Tamara Mellon OBE, Founder and Chief Creative Officer – Jimmy Choo
