Vices collection by Jimmy Choo and Mat Collishaw

Jimmy Choo entrusted British artist Mat Collishaw with the campaign of its latest collection of crystal bejeweled shoes and bags for Cruise 2015. The limited edition collection is titled Vices and, according to Sandra Choi, Jimmy Choo’s creative director, explores the ideas of “envy, seduction and the irrepressible yearning for objects of beauty”. Mat Collishaw, who is famous for his romantic depictions of the morbid and for adding an attractive quality to even the most repulsive themes, created for the occasion an impressive installation evoking a crystallized metropolis full of cosmopolitan energy that served as the perfect display for the dazzling collection.

The Vices collection includes shoes and bags in diamond, ruby, sapphire, emerald, jet, black diamond and citrine crystal gemstones, symbolizing the seven deadly sins. “Precious stones have always tempted me with a bewitching allure, and I have been collecting un-set gems for years. For me, they have their own natural luminosity, and a certain energy that hints at the power to seduce and transform,” said Sandra Choi, who celebrated the launch of the Vices collection with a private dinner at Jimmy Choo’s New Bond Street Townhouse store in London, featuring a special installation by Mat Collishaw with large scale crystals erupting from the floor and bursting through the ceiling. The Vices collection will be available soon at Jimmy Choo’s website as well as at selected boutiques around the world.
