“Creative dreams were fulfilled when able to combine the young exuberance of Off-White™
and the storied elegance of Jimmy Choo”
– Virgil Abloh, Creative Director Off-White
With an ability to multi collaborate with big brands such as Nike, Warby Parker and NYC’s Ballet (and that too in just one year!), Off White’s Virgil Abloh and his policy of “the best fit, fabric and fabrication” make him the fashion director to reckon with. While everyone would love to partner with Virgil for his ‘making normal seem sophisticated’ creativity and seemingly effortless capability to combine the DNA of two far off brands to produce fashion that is something surprising and something unexpected, it’s his SS 18 collaboration with the iconic Jimmy Choo that made us wanting to create space in our wardrobes.
Premiering at this year’s Paris Fashion Week, Off White x Jimmy Choo‘s Natural Woman collection, is a born tribute to the immortal fashion icon from the 1990’s, Princess Diana. Inspired by her most monumental looks, Abloh pays tribute to Lady Di’s elegant personality and fierce stance on all things right with delicate satin pumps laced with tear drop crystals and chisel toe heels enrobed in plastic (something that would definitely even make Cinderalla feel jelaous!)
This part-modern, part-vintage collaboration not only does right to the Princess Diana’s fashion saavy spirit but give us all a chance to feel like one! The Off White x Choo collection was available for pre-order only for a week on the Jimmy Choo website (yes, tough luck to us all) but good news is we can wait till it hits the stores in February (wouldn’t you want to feel like a princess?!)
