Jimmy Choo Autumn Winter 2018

Published

The Autumn Winter 2018 Jimmy Choo collection heralds a return to an exquisite yet insouciant glamour tempered by silhouettes carved with a modern refinement reminiscent of the illustrator Erté’s lyrical alphabet. Moiré silk, pearls, sumptuous velvets peppered with micro shimmer crystals and painterly brocades resonate with the Belle Époque’s optimistic beauty in a palette dominated by gold, black and blush.

The calm allure of the pearl decorates throughout the collection from the innocent charm of its purist form to gilt oversized iterations evoking turn of the century opulence. It’s placement runs the gauntlet from assertive punctuations on the SADIRA cutaway pump and SACORA ankle strap sandal, to a peeping wink that teases whilst nestled in folds of metallic gold elaphé. The SAMANTHA micro heeled mule is an ode to the pearl with all over embellishment in natural shades of ivory. The BETHANIE boot ‘button’ detail heroes the precious object; studded pearl inlays on the combat inspired HANAH boot lend a youthful attitude.

Shot by Lachlan Bailey, the campaign stars models Joan Smalls, Lily Aldridge, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Clément Chabernaud.

“This season I feel it is time for fashion to rediscover exquisiteness. With Jimmy Choo’s glamorous heritage in mind I wanted the collection to embrace an alluring beauty with contemporary freshness. Autumn Winter ‘18 is about balancing the form with the decoration, super sexy but with a graceful refinement that transcends day to night style.” – Sandra Choi, Creative Director

A Patchwork Of Characters

Published

Suffused by a dynamic and diverse new spirit, a peerlessly exquisite historical Italian house suddenly echoes with life, laughter and youth again.

For Autumn Winter 2018 Salvatore Ferragamo presents neither one Ferragamo woman, nor one Ferragamo man – instead inviting a broad community of models to reflect the glorious multiplicity of today in a patchwork of characters under the creative direction of Paul Andrew. Shot by Harley Weir and featuring Stella Tennant, Shanelle Nyasiase, Rianne Van Rompaey, Xiao Wen Ju, Piero Mendez and Edoardo Sebastianelli, this milestone Ferragamo campaign represents a fresh page in the  house’s remarkable history.

The new ‘Ferragaristocracy’ as imagined by Andrew is defined by its commitment to progress – because to embrace change is the key to success in contemporary culture. Andrew says: “One of the original inspirations of the collection featured in this campaign was the Duchess of Devonshire – a formidable personification of old-school elegance and privilege. And her grand-daughter Stella inhabits that refreshed persona with an effortless grace. But in 2018 you don’t have to be to the manor born to have a compelling and stylish manner about you. Curiosity, taste and a breadth of vision – not a narrowness – is what counts today.”

Punchy colour, rich texture and flowing deformalized silhouettes punctuated with Andrew’s signature Ferragamo shoes, boots and accessories – starring the new Ferragamo Studio bag –  make up the grammar of Ferragamo’s revived visual language. Harley Weir deploys her realist’s eye and analogue authenticity to present an imagined house-party whose guests hail from across the globe. What’s brought them together? The newly-rebooted Salvatore Ferragamo aesthetic as defined by Andrew in partnership with Menswear Design Director Guillaume Meilland.

Andrew says: “I want Ferragamo to assert a distinctly special voice. The best way to do that is to be collaborative, inclusive and open – which is why I’m so excited to be working alongside talents like Guillaume, Harley, and this powerful cast of models. Together we’ve found a harmony that truly reflects the bold and positive change that’s afoot at Salvatore Ferragamo.”
