Generations of inspiration
Describing herself as the “the world’s oldest living teenager” it’s no wonder nonagenarian Iris Apfel is an inspiration to many designers due to her bold sense of style. After the stylish New Yorker released an exhibition of her wardrobe in 2005, featuring key outfits styled on mannequins exactly as she wore them, she became increasingly famous and popular with street style bloggers around the city. Adding to the ever growing list of admirers is Jimmy Choo with the recent release of the eye catching Iris shoe.
Taking thought from Iris’ love of ethnic prints, colours and tribal jewellery, the Iris shoe is a hand woven, sky high stiletto tan heel adorned with colourful beading that cascades down the front. Albeit a design Apfel is unlikely to wear, it’s certainly one to admire. Also released as part of the range are a slightly more wearable flat sandal and bag featuring similar embellishments.
Also in the range, the Xara bag:
With inspiration flowing from Jimmy Choo creative directors, Sandra Choi and Simon Holloway, it’s time to welcome the next generation of designers that have been inspired in the Choo family, introducing: Lucy Choi. Inspired by her Uncle, Jimmy Choo and sister Sandra, Lucy Choi has created her own stunning range of footwear, named ‘Rock & Royal’, that combines a unique heritage with design expertise and superior craftsmanship to release a collection of shoes to suit all occasions (hence the name!).
