“I am thrilled to introduce men’s shoes to the Jimmy Choo world. My vision of the Jimmy Choo man is one who exudes confidence and style whether he is an artist or an investment banker. The first thing I look at on a man is his shoes”, commented Tamara Mellon, OBE, founder and chief creative officer, Jimmy Choo.
Fusing modern British style with luxurious Italian craftsmanship, the debut men’s collection has a mod aesthetic with a hint of 1960s Mayfair playboy. A perfect balance between classic and rock’n’roll, the men’s collection is focused but versatile, with a wide range of styles including lace-ups, monk straps, loafers, side-zip boots and even evening slippers. Rugged, masculine boots such as Chelsea boots and bikers are also on offer. Sneakers are detailed in luxurious fabrics such as grey flannel and suede.
The MR PORTER offering will include exclusive brown suede Oxfords – a modern interpretation of the four-hole Oxford lace-ups – loafers, minimal and modern monk-strap boots, practical, all-English Chelsea boots, and discrete sneakers in grey flannel, luxuriously lined in shearling.
“We are delighted to have the debut Jimmy Choo men’s collection on MR PORTER. Tamara Mellon’s vision for a stylish and confident man fits perfectly with our vision of becoming the global online style destination for men”, said Toby Bateman, buying director, MR PORTER.
