O-M-G. It is Christmas already? And by Christmas, you just know I’m referring to the Jimmy Choo Spring Summer 2017 Collection. Ooh la la! I am smitten! It all started with the teaser promo below:
And now they got the ever lovely Dakota Fanning to be the new face of the Spring Summer 2017 Collection! In the previous post, I talked about the Lolita 100 but nothing could have prepared me for their floral version of it. Just look at this beauty!
I just completely lapped up the website information as well. “Inspired by the natural grace of the Iris flower, the Lolita is an elegant and sophisticated sandal. With delicate straps which entwine around the foot and the ankle, with intricate arrangement of layered leather petals becoming a decorative corsage for the foot. The play of Mirror Leather with Vacchetta echo the colors and textures of the nature that inspires them. The upper of the Lolita is composed of 66 separate pieces which are intricately hand-stitched. Leather lined with a leather sole this sandal is must have item. Heel height measures 100 mm/3.9 inches. Made in Italy.” Isn’t that just inspired? Also, for those who aren’t into high heels but would just love to have this design anyway, the Lolita Iris design comes in flats!
The floral Lolita 100 is just begging to be paired with the Hummingbird Print Lockett Petite. This is truly the reason why us designer good aficionados can’t just keep with one color of a design we like. Last month, I was enraptured by the purple Lockett Petite. Today? I cannot wait to get my hands on the Hummingbird Print. Can you blame me? Look at it!
The beautiful thing is despite how the Hummingbird looks like it should be a lot more expensive than the solid colors, it isn’t. It’s still sold at the same price which is something we can all appreciate, right? Also, I don’t know if you’ve seen Dakota Fanning’s glamorous Jimmy Choo photo shoot but one particular photo cast a spell on me.
In the photo with her is the Keena 100. The cobalt blue really demands attention! The Keena 100 is a pair of Cobalt Suede Sandal Booties. The website spun me further with its description: Rich cut out detailing define the Keena sandal bootie. The upper is constructed from a velvety suede in a delicate laser cut design to imitate the look of feathers. The laces can be purely aesthetic, instead using the zip fastening at the back of the ankle for ease of fit. Leather lined and finished with a leather sole. Heel height measures 100 mm/3.9 inches. Any one of us would gladly pay the $1070 price tag, am I right or am I RIGHT?
I also really like the Iris version of the Artie. Artie is a practical yet timeless hobo bag, featuring a roomy interior with secure zipped closure. It features an exclusively designed detachable, woven leather shoulder strap which offers a comfortable and easy to carry shoulder drop as well as a longer, removable leather strap. This allows for the bag to be worn on the shoulder, both short and long, or across the body. Featuring our Jimmy Choo engraved metal pull, the zip has been further adorned with knotted leather laces, a Jimmy Choo embossed leather tag and Lockett studs, for a final touch of elevated luxury. The front of the bag features subtle seams echoing the pointed shape of the Lockett lock as well as a foil embossed Jimmy Choo logo for subtle brand identification. Internal suede-like lining keeps this style lightweight and one large slip pocket ensures your valuables are safe and close at hand. Made in Italy.Bag Measures: L 40 x H 28 x W 10cm
It’s going to hit you for about $1340 but it’s worth it. You always get what you paid for after all!
