Brazilian artist Rafael Mantesso and his beloved English bull terrier, named Jimmy Choo are the main culprits for Jimmy Choo Pre Fall 2015 Capsule Collection. While recovering from divorce, artist Mantesso filled the blank space in his home with whimsical illustrations of his dog. Jimmy Choo’s Creative Director, Sandra Choi was so enchanted by the charming drawings that she approached the artist directly, commissioning him to create a series of fun, tongue-in-cheek illustrations to decorate a selection of Jimmy Choo accessories.
The result was a limited edition collection comprising of tote bags, cosmetic and handbag pouches, purses and iPhone cases. All products will feature a series of three exclusive sketches portraying Rafael’s bull terrier set against his signature line drawings.
