Jimmy Choo

Styles from our Men’s Designer pre-fall collections are now available on our site and in stores. We spoke with Designer Apparel Buyer Dan Drewes and Shoe Buyer Garrett Bean about key pre-fall pieces from Lanvin, Gucci, Belstaff, Jimmy Choo and Versace.

SHOP: Lanvin pants | Lanvin sweater | Lanvin topcoat | all Designer Collections

We do these Lanvin biker pants pretty much every season, in some sort of new color or fabric. For fall, we have a stretch poplin and this grey check. They have details inspired by the world of cycling, with zip ankles, articulation around the knees and a reinforced seat. The Lanvin sweater is definitely a customer favorite; it comes in a crew, V, cardigan and turtleneck. It’s actually two different fabrics. If you look closely, the sleeve is solid grey and the body is heather so it’s a subtle tonal detail. We’ve seen more brands show turtlenecks lately. The nice thing about them is they’re a ’70s nod, but you can make them look really modern too. This topcoat is an amazing, tailored piece; the fit is perfect. The khaki color is a great option for fall since it’s so dark and rich; usually khaki is lighter. Especially after everything we’ve seen for the last three years has been black or navy, it’s nice to see some color without it being bright.

Cue the Beach Boys, and get ready to give their retro vibe an urban twist.

“For spring/summer 2016 I took inspiration from California sky-gazing,”said Sandra Choi, Jimmy Choo‘s creative head. She told us the sandals, pumps and bags in the new collection are all about “conveying an upbeat attitude whilst juxtaposing new with old—artisanal vintage references blended with bold, graphic architectural details—to create something modern and surprising.”

And who better to personify that than ultimate cool girl Chloë Sevigny? Choi’s team shared this exclusive on-location campaign image with us, in which the style icon looks like a West Coast dream in this season’s Halley sandal.

We also got Choi to tell us where and how to wear some of her other warm weather favorites, and we found out more about the “sculptural grandeur” that furthered the collection’s inspiration.

In a glassy, reflective showroom in Milan stand Jimmy Choo‘s achingly covetable fall ’16 creations. But these shoes are not just meant to be gazed upon; in this street-style-dominated fashion economy, these are next season’s essential sidewalk-ready pieces.

In the spirit of Fashion Week, we asked Creative Director Sandra Choi to give us her top three selects to see—and be seen in—this fall.

We asked the Jimmy Choo team to help us build two transitional looks—shoe- and handbag-centric outfits that’ll take you from girls’ brunch to girls’ cocktail night, or from the office to the office party—with some of their resort-season standouts.

When you want to know, you go straight to the top of four inches of smoky suede.

Upon seeing the elegant and sometimes edgy styles in the fall ’15 Jimmy Choo shoe and handbag collection, and upon understanding that behind them were the magical stage lights of world-class ballet, we couldn’t help wanting to learn more about creative director Sandra Choi’s inspiration.

We chatted via email with the Isle of Wight–born, Hong Kong–educated designer about her favorite dancers, how she wears these styles and the enduring allure of the ankle.

Moms know best, so we asked some of the coolest ones we know to give us the skinny on personal style, what motherhood means to them and, of course, what’s on their wish list as May 10 approaches.

As cofounders of The Hive, a style blog that’s all about chic mamas, LA-based Melissa Magsaysay and Sara Riff are totally tapped into what it means to be on the go while simultaneously of the moment. When the laptops close, the two turn their attention to chasing after toddlers: Magsaysay’s son, Miles, and Riff’s daughter, Tatiana Plum.

We all know and love Joanna Hillman here on The Thread. She carries her New York style with her across the globe. A modern white moto jacket adds great contrast to her slim separates. Buckle boots continue the moto theme, while her signature red lip adds a pop of color.

Street Style: Elle at Carven

Elle’s feminine look has both modern edge and classic femininity. That pleated skirt with sequin panel is to die for and pairs perfectly with a sleek, cropped turtleneck. The soft pink coat is a great transitional piece. And of course, no look is complete without tall boots this season.

Crystal Nicodemus

Subtlety can often stand out during Fashion Week’s more hectic shows. I love Julia’s minimalist urban-cool vibe. She has a few quirky touches (hello, lip clutch!) that keep things interesting. Lace-up stilettos are my newest obsession, and this low-heeled style looks stunning and actually wearable.
