Citizen K magazine brings its playful, colourful universe to...
The Borrowed from The Boys collection features 3 hero styles in a variety of fabrications that are available for both the Jimmy Choo woman and man. The androgynous style of a men’s loafer or evening slipper is timelessly modern and that is the essence of the collection, taking men’s signature silhouettes and tailoring them for a women’s fit respecting the form of each genders foot as it isn’t simply a case of offering smaller sizes.
“Personally I have always explored more androgynous ways of dressing. The trick is retaining a notion of femininity with subtle styling nuances lending a softness and counter balance to masculine style. The Borrowed from the Boys collection of shoes is something I have wanted to create for a while. The designs are sleek and formal, working from day to night. The masculine silhouettes are softened with fabrications of tactile velvet and playful accents of fur. I think there’s a notion of innate confidence when a woman experiments with masculine tailoring that feels relevant to the Jimmy Choo woman.” Sandra Choi, Creative Director

The MARTI is a new loafer featuring a chevron-hemmed snaffle that echoes the buckle of Jimmy Choo’s signature LOCKETT handbag. It is presented in an assortment of tactile velvet, coloured suede and a crushed black patent leather.
The MARLO is a new evening slipper style that’s served dressed in signature Jimmy Choo coarse glitter, two shades of cracked leather or a decadent eye catching degrade crystal appliqué finish.
