Jimmy Choo has been smitten by an artistic dance form to step out with its latest Autumn Winter 2015 collection. Inspired by Ballet, Sandra Choi, Creative Director, Jimmy Choo has designed the collection that draws on the powerful sense of emotion conveyed by the line of a dancer’s body and the palpable passion created by a single movement.Shot by Steven Klein, Ondria Hardin and Tiana Tolstoi star in the campaign. Speaking about her inspiration, Sandra states, “There is a perception that ballet is delicate and light – it is true there is beauty in the performance, but there is also an enormous sense of discipline involved. This led me to draw parallels with the theme of bondage. The dancers use delicate satin ribbons tied at the ankle like a harness, drawing the core in, focusing the mind, restraining the body. A knot gives the dancer strength to perform, but it’s also an art form.”
Anneli 110 is an open toed boot that is shaped out of black stretch nappa leather. Standing on a 4.5 inches slightly curved heel, this boot hugs the leg like a second skin. The ballerina in you will admire the tonal strap detailing criss cross pattern all the way up the leg which ends in a wrap around tie at the knee. Once the laces are adjusted, the boot can be worn by using the zip at the back. Step in them for $2,395.
Lilyth 120 ups the femininity with red velvet, mirror leather material and a movable tulle bow detailing. The $950 peep toe sandal perfectly embodies the ballerina trend while upping 4.7 inches to your stature. Subtle and dainty, Rosana 100 too takes inspiration from the typical ballerina shoe. The ballet pink velvet round toe pumps holds a satin tie that can be wrapped around and knotted at the ankle. Fitted with a 3.9 inches heel, it can strapped on for $850.
