Pop artist Rob Pruitt has collaborated with Jimmy Choo on a capsule collection featuring shoes and accessories, on sale from today. Pruitt is best known for his colourful and playful designs, often using the glittery pandas featured on many pieces of the collection.
I do love it when fashion brands collaborate with artists, as the result is always a bit different and sometimes even a bit controversial (think Stephen Sprouse for Louis Vuitton) – whilst not everything in the collection may be to my personal taste, I think it’s interesting to see how Pruitt’s signature designs were transformed into a fashion collection. Some of the pieces are quite affordable, although the Angel and Devil Minaudière bags have been limited to 14 pieces worldwide, and will set you back a whopping £9600 (numbered and signed by the artist).
