Nicole Kidman for Jimmy Choo Autumn Winter 2013

Nicole Kidman for Jimmy Choo Autumn Winter 2013  (3)

Just before Cannes it was revealed that Nicole Kidman would be the face (and feet) of Jimmy Choo’s Autumn Winter 2013 campaign.

The campaign exploring themes of film noir and referencing the tension of Hitchcock’s empowered heroines, photographer Mikael Jansson portrays Kidman (wearing a cropped flame-coloured wig) as the seductive protagonist in a series of images that hint at the brand’s recurring themes of empowered glamour.

Breaking in August issues globally, the campaign is accompanied by a short film.

“Nicole has perfectly captured the mood of our AW13 collection; her character portrays the multi-faceted qualities of the Jimmy Choo woman for this season – strong, sexy with a beguiling sense of mystery.” Sandra Choi, Creative Director.

“I really enjoyed being able to play a role that was strong, sexy and in control. I got into a relationship with the photographer and Mikael is very intuitive, he knows what I am thinking and feeling and is able to translate it through the camera.” Nicole Kidman.

Jimmy Choo & Esquire Party Menswear Round Up

Jimmy Choo Esquire Party Menswear Round Up

There were plenty of dudes attending the Jimmy Choo and Esquire party which was held during the start of Menswear Spring 2014 fashion week.

Dan Stevens: The former ‘Downton Abbey’ actor wore a slick all-black Spencer Hart look with a pair of Jimmy Choo ‘Abbot’ black sneakers with a white sole. We’ve only seen the British actor sport classic suits so far, so it’s refreshing to see him wearing something a bit more contemporary.

Tinie Tempah: Always one to step outside the classic suit-and-tie menswear look, the rapper wore a layered top and black cropped pants – a look he often favours – with Jimmy Choo ‘Foxley’ loafers. His glazed leather whole-cut venetian loafers with tonal oversized tassel detail added a dapper flair to his casual look, where sneakers would’ve been the most obvious choice.

Mark Ronson: The DJ selected a Prince of Wales check charcoal-grey suit styled with a printed shirt. Also selecting an unpredictable shoe, Mark wore tobacco-hued Jimmy Choo ‘Radnor’ slippers. They are a sleek yet fun take on the classic loafer, finished in textured suede and shiny calf leather.

Wretch 32: We don’t associate velvet with summer, but since summer is yet to arrive in London, I would say the rapper’s look was season appropriate. This copper blazer teamed with a white shirt and navy trousers was styled with a pair of Jimmy Choo ‘Belgravia’ matt croc-embossed leather high-top sneakers in black cherry. Will Smith wore these same sneakers last month in black.

Jimmy Choo Fitch Sandals

New for Spring /Summer and already becoming the ‘IT’ shoe on the red carpet for 2013 are the Jimmy Choo ‘Fitch’ sandals.

With an ultra-feminine silhouette, crafted from exquisite French Chantilly lace and boasting a 4.7” heel, the romantic sandals come in a range of colours including the popular gold, black and pink.
