Choose the Choo’s
Jimmy Choo’s creative director Sandra Choi watched fireworks arcing across the sky and conceived the Cruise 2018 collection.The shoes have micro-crystals on the top straps and sizeable rainbow-hued jewels on the delicate heels. Radiant pearls meet leather and fun tassels and an intricate crystal on both shoes and bags. Masculine components appear on casual slippers but the crystal jewels are there too. Loafers wear plush fur and purple velvety jewels. The Lockett mini-bag is colourful and has a metal and leather chain, leopard print and jewels.
No animals were injured
Stella McCartney’s cruelty-free “amplified sneaker” looks pumped up and have cool soles mimicking the textures of rock. The upper is “alter calf” and micro-suede, the tread thermoplastic and anti-slip, the heel a mix of polymers moulded for extra softness. With a wonderful aerodynamic shape and hand-sprayed effects, you might not notice the extra four centimetres of height hidden inside the sole, which is made from renewable resources.
Teamwork in full colour
American brands Jill Stuart and Morgan Lane have teamed up on a chic and sexy collection of makeup pouches inspired by lingerie and makeup packaging featuring Morgan Lane cartoon characters. Dreamy Holiday is the theme for Pyjama Party A (tulle lingerie) and Pyjama Party B (aka Lanie’s Special).
