Jimmy Choo Ballet Inspired Autumn Winter 2015 Shoe Collection, designed by Sandra Choi, Creative Director, is inspired by the powerful sense of emotion conveyed by the line of a dancer’s body, the elegance of an arabesque and the enormous sense of discipline that is required in ballet. In the campaign, which was shot by Steven Klein, Ondria Hardin and Tiana Tolstoi star.
When asked about her inspiration, Sandra Choi said: “There is a perception that ballet is delicate and light – it is true there is beauty in the performance, but there is also an enormous sense of discipline involved. This led me to draw parallels with the theme of bondage. The dancers use delicate satin ribbons tied at the ankle like a harness, drawing the core in, focusing the mind, restraining the body. A knot gives the dancer strength to perform, but it’s also an art form.”
The collection features models that are perfect for women who want to feel delicate yet powerful at the same time. And the colour range is diverse, too, from pink, red, cinnamon to black.
Model Anneli 110 is an open toed boot, with a 4.5 inches slightly curved heel. And, if you are a fan of strap detailing criss cross pattern, these boots can be yours for $2,395.
Lilyth 120, the $950 peep toe sandal with red velvet and a movable tulle bow, will help you accentuate your femininity.
