Jimmy Choo x Mugler: a razor-sharp collaboration
Reflecting on the contemporary definition of being a woman, the Jimmy Choo x Mugler brands, led by creative directors Sandra Choi and Casey Cadwallader join forces to create an exclusive shoe collection.
The duo started working together a year ago on Zoom. Together they decided to go back to the Choo models of the 90s. and the characteristic Mugler transparencies, which the recently deceased designer introduced at the end of the 20th century. They translated timeless codes into a capsule shoe line. This is how they created elastic boots inspired by Spiral and Illusion body models with mesh inserts. They are available in pre-ankle and over-the-knee versions. Neon yellow pumps, disco ball-themed flip-flops on a 10 cm stiletto heel and gladiators made of gold thongs wrapped around the calf.
“Casey emboldened me a bit, I went way outside my comfort zone. As a result, the shoes are taller, more predatory, with a demented heel curved into a gentle arch” – says Sandra Choi, creative director of Jimmy Choo’s accessories line.
“Mugler and Jimmy Choo’s designs have told a story of strength since the brands’ beginnings. Our customers are steadfast and striking. They are in complete control of their lives” – Choi adds.
