Some shoe titillation for you – if you hate shoes, skip along to the next post. (You hate shoes?) This is the 2014 Cruise Collection from Jimmy Choo and it launches later on this year. I wanted to draw your attention to a few of the styles that look distinctly comfortable and wearable – for those who normally associate Choos with teetering stiletto heels and unmanageable foot gradients, these styles may be of quite some interest!
Wedges, chunky platforms and a brand new heel height (below) that’s part retro, part Space-Age-Heiress. The mid-height heel in such a solid incarnation is a bit of a departure for Jimmy Choo, I think, but I’m guessing that it will be very popular. I can imagine gorgeous ladies wafting around Cannes or Monaco in these, wearing silk shirt dresses and carrying small dogs. Perfect for boat decks, wave-splashed sea-fronts and teetering home after one too many glasses of Rosé at the yacht club. Or for us mere mortals; perfect for cobbled streets, dodging puddles and running for the number 55 bus.
Even more practical still, these boots:
I think that the detailing on them is beautiful. The caramel-coloured suede would look amazing with bare summer legs and the gold heel is a stroke of genius!
There were lots of brilliant flats and mid-heels, all of them fabulous, but lovers of the classic Choo fear not; there were also pencil-heels and towering shoes aplenty.
I really liked the contrasting toe detail on some of the pumps – the silver toe on the black pumps, but even more so the coral toe on the white ones…
It’s a great way of adding interest to a classic shoe shape and I think that it makes the pumps look even more slender and beautiful. You could really lift a whole outfit with just this tiny detail – they’re the kind of heels you could slip on with some well-cut jeans and a classic blazer and look totally chic and polished. Gorgeous!
The Cruise Collection will launch this November.
